|out of breath after loop 2|
I wanted to give my wardrobe choice a trial run as well. I decided to go with tri shorts and a bathing suit top with a shirt over it.
The tri shorts were okay although I obviously prefer bike shorts. The bathing suit top however is a no-go. I found it to be very uncomfortable. I think I'l wear a run-bra thing with a shirt over it instead.
My race times on this course have varied from 42-46 minutes. I did it in about 43 minutes the first time today and 48 the second. It's a short, but moderately hilly route. I feel confident now going into the bike part of the aqua-bike next weekend and I learned that I need alternate wardrobe choice. From that perspective, it was a good training experience!
True be told, I haven't been swimming laps since sometime in 2013. I should probably at least check my goggles to make sure they don't leak. Yeah, you may have noticed that I'm not really all that serious about training for this event. It's really just for fun anyway and news flash, I'm not going to win anyway. :-D
Tomorrow we have an early wake-up for the 40 mile ride event that we entered. It has a 6:30 start time and the starting line is about a 45 min drive from our house.
