I’m just a few days out from the 12.6 mile Distance Swim Challenge. I’m swimming a scaled down version of my regularly scheduled workouts this week and then driving to LA Friday night so that I can be on the beach bright and early Saturday morning to swim the race. Right now I’m more concerned with all the logistics of the race as opposed to actually completing the distance. I guess that’s sort of a good thing. There’s no shuttles or support for the 12.6 point to point swimmers so we have to arrange all of our own kayak transport and whatnot… kind of a pain in the ass. I wish there was a little more support for us, but it is what it is. I think me and Beth have it figured out enough for right now.
Today’s swim was majorly low key. I tried to just focus on what I was doing with my stroke. If I have to swim for like 7 hours in a row I better be doing it right!
8 x 100 alt 100 IM @ 1:45 and 100 free @ 1:30
8 x 75 kick @ 1:30
2000 yards total
Tomorrow I’ll be in Avila Beach for what is probably going to be our last Wednesday night swim of the year. I’m sad to see that swim go away, but at least I took full advantage of it while I could!
