Keeps getting closer and I’m more excited. Yeah that’s what I’m calling it.
Had a good bike ride this morning along the bike route for the race. The two big hills feel maybe a little bit easier which is nice and encouraging. So I’ve only been in the lake once for our OWS clinic. It’s been bothering me that I haven’t been able because of the weather to get in the lake and swim. I tried to get in on Sunday and after all the rain, the lake was painfully cold. So today I just sucked it up and got in with two friends. Here I am. Then I’m just the head floating in the second picture. I gradually got more and more of me wet. Then we swam 2/3 of the way to that boat house right behind us and then back. Helped calm me down a bit just that I got back in and survived with it this cold. Plus I practiced my OWS techniques and felt ok.
Came home, showered and warmed up. The sun helped us warm up a bunch too. It’s suppose to be 80’s next week so please pray for warm temps and no rain so that the lake can warm up a bit.
