  1. Congratulations on your first tri of the season! I confess that the open water swimming picture gave me a bit of a thrill. I don’t think the water is quite warm enough up here yet, but should be soon. When will your outdoor pool open? I really enjoy those pictures.

    My motivation to exercise has not been very good…I can’t run and am a bit leery of biking on the roads since tension between cyclists and motorists always seems to be building. There was a conversation on my community Facebook page a couple of weeks ago filled with hatred for cyclists…both on the road and on community pathways 😦

    1. Thanks Amy! The outdoor pool opens in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait!

      I’m so sad to hear that your community FB page is so full of hate! People need to all learn to get along. There have been lots of cyclists hit here in the states as well. It is so sad. We are all humans and have people we love and who love us. They want us to come home safely whether we drive a vehicle, drive a tractor, run, ride a motorcycle, cycle, or even play in the street with the kids. We need to change the mindset from hatred to love and gratitude…one small step at a time.

  2. Your swim yardage is so impressive! And that you could do some OWS already, how awesome! I only swim like once a week and our lakes are still high 50s. You rock the training, you make me want to put some focus into my training! Congrats on the first tri of the year too, how fun!

    1. Thanks Steena!! I don’t know the exact temperature of the lake, but it was warm enough to swim with the wetsuit. High 50s is doable, but you may want booties and a neoprene skull cap. The coldest I’ve swam in was 54*F and it took your breath away! This tri lit a fire in my belly…just what I needed right now! Time for more focus! 😉

    1. Thanks Leslie! I’m working on the race recap…so much going on right now, so it will probably be ready next week. 😉
