Rachel, Katy, Ben, Meghann, and Kelly showed up to swim the lake. It was nice to have other people there to swim with. I decided to take it easy and just survive the swim. I forgot my watch, so it was nice not to worry about how fast or slow I was swimming.
I had some issues going out, mainly navigating in a straight line. I also noticed my swimming technique was shot which made the swim across the lake tougher than I remembered in the past. The swim back was better, until I got in a fight with one of the buoys. I did not notice it while I was swimming and I swam straight into it.
Rachel took a nice photo of me in my new speedo. The sun was coming off the lake and was shinning in my eyes. My tri-shorts are now too big and are warn out from this past tri-season. I need to work on my leg tan lines.
It was nice to just swim the lake with no training purpose other than to just complete the lap. In the past, I worried about the time and working on other skills like sighting while I swam the lake. Still need 17 more laps to get the white Lucky’s Lake Swim Cap.
