Lil Spill

May 24, 2013

Chantel and I had our first open water swim today. I was very scared. The waves were hitting us while we swam and it was very disorienting . I left the water with a real fear of drowning . We wore wetsuits, although the water was warm enough not to need them. The wetsuits make you more buoyant but its very restrictive. When I would start to feel disoriented I would go immediately into the breast stroke . That’s my safety swim stroke. The wetsuit was so restrictive that I was not getting enough propulsion with my legs to do the breast stroke well. I feel totally deflated right now.
I need to regroup. Sunday is the race.
Heading to OKC on Wednesday!
