As if the pounding I took on the weekend wasn't enough, I had a 3500 m swim this morning. 3500 meters!!! The swim in Ironman is 3800 meters. So I swam almost the entire race distance this morning. Took me an hour and 26 minutes. Not bad considering 800 m of it was pull (which I suck at) and 400 m of it was kick which is always slower than swimming, at least for me. I'm thinking that a 1:10 swim might ACTUALLY be possible, as long as I get myself in the right spot at the start.
BRING IT ON!
