T 30 Challenge, (where were you you wimps!)
Where were you Matt the Cash and Awesome Emma? you wimps! We were assisted in recording by Synchro Dad who is currently suffering with a bad back but turned up to help record.
I ended up swimming side by side with the Fairy Snow Baby which was an interesting experience, as I was fair buffeted by his wash each time we passed. It was impossible to judge how I was doing, the pace clock is rubbish, and my steamed up goggles made any attempt to sneak a glance at the clock impossible.
I was heartened by the fact that it took almost 500 metres before the FSB lapped me, last year he swam 300 metres more than me so I figured this was an improvement, I was aiming for 2000 metres and simply set out for a straight 2K swim, eventually finishing with 2055 metres, or 2057 to be precise.
200 warm up
2100 swim (2055 in 30 minutes)
100 swim down
