The practice swim at Miromar Lakes was really fun. The first 1000 yards I was feeling some stiffness, but it was easy to sight all the turn buoys, the water was perfect, and then by the time I turned the second buoy in the channel I was swimming well. By then I had found my OW stroke and tempo.

I enjoyed meeting some of the swimmers also trying out the course. It was good I brought extra silicone caps as one swimmer's cap broke just before getting in the lake, and since I was wearing two, I gave her my top orange one, and then off we went.

It should be a great time tomorrow for all the participants!

    That sounds like the perfect pre-race-day workout. It's always reassuring to get to practice on the course beforehand. Have a great swim tomorrow!
