Aerobic Ride, Avg HR 121, up & down 51 twice and Fire Rd. Wall of headwinds on 51 and I just spun through it. You win wind :-) Didn't use much nutrition: two waters, 1.5 bottles of gatorade and one 240cal Bonk Bar.

WWL OPWS with Derrick and Jillian.

So yeah, this was like one of my best swimmers ever in the lake, and only my second lake swim of the year - Go Figure!! Truth is, it's the wetsuit. The ROKA Maverick Elite is the most amazing wetsuit I've ever swam in. What's really helped me is the centerline buoyancy strip. You can see this feature in the picture. It's an amazing feature that "helps" you rotate. How? Well, when you rotate on one side (which allows for a long reach, long glide, and high catch) the thick centerline piece acts as a fulcrum and literally propels you back flat onto your stomach and then swings you to the opposite rotation for your opposite arm launch. It's amazing. Love it!!

Also, the forearms are regular smooth rubber, which has been proven better at catching and holding water for the "pull". My other swimsuits had the "catch panels" which the manufacturers now admit they NEVER DID TESTING ON! Turns out, the serrated "catch panels" break up the water under the arm and lead to a less effective catch! Not too mention when you stretch out during the hand entry and glide, they are not hydro-dynamic in the water and slow you down!

Aerobic Run. Started out stiff and tired and felt better with each mile. Felt the best, loosest, strongest the last mile.

OPWS - Wildwood Lake. First lake swim of the year and I did better than expected. Swam with Ian, who easily swam 5 minutes faster than me! Also first swim in my Roka Maverick Elite wetsuit. Wow, what an awesome suit. Neck is super low in the back, so no chafing, and lots of bouyancy in the legs. I don't plan to swim this fast at Quassy, though. I'll be pacing slower.

SF - The Hunted. Needed only two breaks on the 20-minute interval at 10 mins and 5 mins left. Even when in top form this is a hard workout for me.
