First off, thank you to everybody that blogged, tweeted and facebooked about my Open Water Swim Tour! I appreciate the love! Also thank you to everyone that shot me emails and comments during the day, I appreciate it! I’m really stoked about my tour, but there’s a lot of training to be done in the meantime… for speed and aesthetic reasons. Like I told one of my friends, “I need to be a little more svelte looking if I’m going to travel the country half naked drawing attention to myself,” it’s just good business :)
Anyways, I got in a good swim in Santa Maria today, the sun was shining and we had 3 1/2 swimmers in our workout… one dude had to bail early hence the 1/2.

My freestyle is feeling really good these days but my stroke stuff has been slipping. I’ve been really focused on my freestyling and it hasn’t been so good for my butterfly. I guess my fly is going to be a victim of my open water ambitions this year… I’m still hoping I can shave off a second from last year’s 100 time this year (I swam a :59) just by virtue of my much improved fitness. We’ll see what happens.
