Arsenal of Assault
Thank God for disc brakes!
The perfect calm Warming up
Man I love OW swimming. Nothing beats it! The girls I was with told me the point we swam to was almost 1/2 mile. I'm a bad judge of water distance so I guess I'll take it for what it's worth, but I don't know exactly. It took us just over 13 minutes to get to the turnaround (~.5miles). I totally underestimated how much my swimming has improved since my last OWS because I was pretty far ahead of the group and even stopped to wait for them because I wasn't sure exactly where the turnaround was. Totally smooth, totally strong. It was awesome. On the way back, I waited for a gal who was really behind because the boats were starting to trickle in the lake and there's safety in numbers. Overall it was pretty sweet. I did however get a couple of calf cramps on the way in. What's up with that? I should have drank some electrolytes that morning. The bike ride back was a little rough, but you just can't complain about such an awesome way to spend the morning.
