So my attempt at swimming one-mile in the Flowers Sea Swim after not having trained AT ALL for it was surprisingly a resounding success! I was able to post my best time (40:16, doing the breast stroke and into a slight current), which was my best time by more than 1:30 over my previous best time (2011, my second go around in this event). And I wasn’t even pushing that hard, except at the end when I was ready for my pizza at the finish party!
Amazing what a bit of running can do for you!
(oh, and I won a one-night Staycation prize at the Wyndham Reef Resort! Lots of great moments at this year’s event, for sure!)
