Flail, flail, flail, *splash*, choke, paddle, kick, cramp, flail.
So now we begin again. And keep at it until I start getting it right. In 340 days I plan to do a 2.4 mile ocean swim, remember? That would be 3862 meters, more than 2 1/2 times the total distance that I swam today. And I intend to live to tell the tale. Not to mention go on to do a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile jog the same day. Before midnight.
My baseline today for starting back in the pool:
- 200m in 6:19
- 200m in 6:20
The good news is that if I can do exactly that pace or better at Ironman Florida, I'll be out of the water in 2:02. Eighteen minutes ahead of the deadline. Whew!
