Time for a new post - 1.2 mile swim
I am no longer afraid of the 1.2 mile swim. In the IM 70.3 I did a 1 hour 13 minute missing the cut off by 3 minutes, although I went on to finish the triathlon as they allow us to do. I am ready and now just have to maintain this base and hopefully even get down to sub 45 minutes, and well, I am enroute. This less than 50 minute time is 23 minutes faster than the open water, and I expect 6 minutes or so due to sighting and drifting in open water.
Getting stoked as I am about 5 lbs away from my initial goal weight. Bring it on! Here I come.
