This was supposed to be the Canada Day 4K swim, but instead I got my first ever DNF:( Had a terrible time with breathing, could not find my steady state place and struggled the entire time. I was coughing and wheezing badly and decided that something was not right, so I got out of the water and decided to fight this mountain another day. I had difficulty breathing the rest of the day and as it turns out, I was not the only one, several of my friends who did the swim had issues with breathing too which continued throughout the day. I was also told by the very nice people who got me to shore that I was not the only one that had to call it because of breathing problems.

I know I can swim 2k+ easy on any given day. My objective of the day was to see whether my shoulder could deal with the 4K distance and that right now remains an unanswered question.

OMG horrible run. It was supposed to be 10K, but the day was against me, too hot, not enough sleep, and a few other things. At least I did something.

A great ride today, very warm even with the 7am start. It was a ride with more hills than I have ever done before, some really good ones too, I managed to stay seated for all of them, and though it was tough work, it felt good and helps solidify my decision on whether or not to sign up for Ironman Canada, next year.

Not a great run, more mental strength, very muggy, calves were crampy and I had to stop to stretch them out halfway through the run.
