The 30 minute mile

The swim went well today. I did it the other day in 36 minutes, Then this morning I did the half mile, just to get loosened up, and it took 16 minutes. I figured that if I can do the half in 16 minutes I can do the mile in 32, and if I can do the mile in 32 minutes, I can do it in 30.
My time was 29 mins and 17 seconds, and I came in 110th out of 546 swimmers.
It was pretty rough, wave-wise, but the current helped us all. I had some foot cramps about half way and a couple of bad calf cramps about 3 quarters of the way through, but I just kept swimming.
It was good.
I didn’t win any random prizes though

Oh yeah, PS, it was nice and sunny too!

  1. Wow, you did great! And I’m so glad it was sunny and that you seemed to have not gotten stung by jelyfish!
