Now that there aren’t any pool meets for like 2 months I’m shifting my focus to open water for a while. After a fairly weak swim at lunch today, I went to the gym tonight and swam an extra 2000 yards. I felt way better in the water this time around. I think I’ve got all the residual stiffness out of my muscles from the Zone meet last weekend.
Saturday morning I’m driving up to Santa Cruz for the 36th Annual Roughwater Swim. This will be my first open water swim in rougher, choppy water… I’m not sure how rough the water really is, but I bet it’s more exciting than the glassy water of Lake Millerton!
Anybody out there a Santa Cruz Roughwater Swim Pro? I could use a few pointers! I really don’t have much of an idea of what I’m in for this weekend. Swimming around a pier sounds simple enough, but I’m assuming it’s slightly more nuanced than that :)
If you feel like swimming around in really frickin’ cold water in Santa Cruz this weekend come check it out! You can enter on race day, check out the race information here.
