On my way to my 1st 2000, I was closing in on 1600 and then it came to me, 1700's in honor of Connor Beaulieu's 17th birthday.
So there it was
5 x 1700 with 17 seconds rest in between.
Stayed a nice, comfortable pace, enjoying a few drafting periods behind swimmer, Joey Lacus, a real treat. Kaeley was taking pics of the kids shivering and me huffing and puffing.
The weather is cooperating with helping me acclimate to channel conditions, another cold and cloudy morning.
I'm feeling ready.
Dream, Prepare, Succeed.
