Anyone out there planning on doing the Clemson 10K Open Water Championships June 14 (new date)? The swim doesn't start until 8:45 AM, so heat will be a huge issue.

Hahahaha...snicker..teeheee...:rofl: 10k open water? Not on your life. Here I am complaining about the distance to a 50 meter LCM wall. I'm not about to race anything over 200 YARDS.

On the other hand, it sounds like you've been training hard for this and should be able to take your age group, heck all the ladies, in a 10K, not to mention kicking a lot of southeastern boy butt:notworthy:

Good luck in this adventure:wave:

Aw, come on Glider! It's more just for fun kind of thing.
Still not totally sure I'm going to be able to do it.
And, I really don't train for 10Ks. 1500/ 1650 is usually my limit!
:eek:

So, are you going? I read you've been training LCM. You should be ready...that's one LONG practice:bump:

Good luck, Donna. Work hard, swim fast, and most importantly, sleep well!

Not sure Glider. I entered but I've still got the Athens meet to get through first. I signed up for 5 long events for one lactic acid practice. :whiteflag:

I am actually taking my ATO training at this meet between sessions and will probably work during the younger session and swim with the older kids. My next few meets will be like that.
