Splash 'n Dash
As a final training session of my triathlon group, we participated in the Splash 'n Dash. It's a 750 meter open water swim, followed by a 3 mile run. It's a USAT sanctioned, timed event. My swim was not good. I'm just uncomfortable in open water. Not nervous or scared, just uncomfortable. I'm not sure what it is. I think I get intimidated by the distance and focus on how long it is rather than what's right in front of me. I'm not sure but it's definitely something I need to work on. I survived. It was tough but fun and I was glad that I was able to do it with a lot of new friends.
