Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Swam the last 800 yards of the B2B course with Ron and Alex. Kevin safety boated for us. I swam without wetsuit and was fine after the initial 10 strokes or so. Water had some chop due to wind. Sighting in chop more difficult due to spray.

B2B full swim start

On Friday we sent out to visit the swim start.

The name of the game is keeping everything in the bank and just staying loose.

With these instructions in mind, I didn't push it at all during this swim.

Easy taper run with Emma. 4x1 min strides with 1 min between mid run.

We had fun. As always, Emma was an enthusiastic training partner.

Early morning walk with Emma.

It's getting close now!


I'm not loving the current forecast but (1) it's only Monday and (2) I ran my first half marathon in sleet and freezing rain.  It will not be sleet and freezing rain on Saturday!
