1,000 yards is significant as this is an accepted 'Time Trial' for swimming. Now, granted that's a cool 400 yards LESS than what I need to be churning out but let's face it, this vegan boy isn't made for swimming long ass distances like that. I need to be on a bike [climbing my ass off] or running [my ass off]. That's where I'm comfortable. Swimming has been good and dare I say, I've started to develop something resembling some arm muscles - let's not get carried away now!
The time wasn't too shabby @ sub 17 mins but not nearly where it needs to be. Holy crap there are some guys that are smoking fast and SCARY fast in the water. Guess what? I'm not one of them. Turns out that fast swimmers are a) tall and b) heavier [not weeeegan]. Odd isn't it...
One amazingly positive thing that happened was my SRM finally [and I mean FINAAAAAAAAAAALLY] came in the other day. Whew. I can breathe. Now alls we gotta do is strap the BRAND SPANKING NEW SPEEDPLAY TRACK ZEROS [!!!!!!!!!!!] on those things and we're ready to rock out with the ............ out.
Alright, I'm nearly dead and my arms are damn near falling off me from that effort. Nighty night.
