You folks rock! All this distance talk!
I swam a 5000 last month, actually 5500, unfortunately it was not a Postal Swim. It should have been. It was a fundraiser for the United Way. I swam 5000 in 1 Hr 50 Min, followed by a 500 cool down. Two hours total. SCM outdoor pool.
Last evening I did the 3000 Postal Swim in 55 minutes. That was 4 minutes faster than last year. SCY indoor pool. I need to register for this Postal now that I have swum it.
Can hardly wait for November. Minnesota Masters Postal Pentathlons here I come! I will do all three. Then onto Davis Aquatic Masters Brute Challenge. I am ready!
No one around where I live are interest in doing these. I am the only one in this area who does them. Sad. On the other hand I get all the bragging rights in the area! WoooHoooo!
