Sunday AM, "open-water," swim @ Barton Springs

--total of 18 loops, about 4.75 miles
--stopped for feeds after 11, 14, 15, 17, then had some when I finished
--wanted to see how long I could go before I started to feel like I might bonk. I've done 5k swims before with no feeds/water. but after I finish those, I'm done, and drink water. 11 loops was about how much I wanted to do, yet still swim more after.
--11 loops without equipment, 3 loops with fins, 1 without equipment, 2 with Agility paddles, then 1 final without
--I splashed at about 7am. there is free entry until 8am, and it gets busy about 7:30 to 8. when I stopped after the 11 (about 9am), the place had really cleared out. since I was stopping anyway, I asked someone getting in if the guards called people out, she asked a guard, and he said no it was fine to swim. was just very odd, but I had a good swim without running into the casual swimmers.
--when I finailly finished and got out, I realized it was sprinking. just a light drizzle, I didn't notice while I swam. I heard it was like that for a while, so maybe that's why people left.

I needed that longer warm-up to just stretch out after the long swim yesterday. felt pretty tight and really didn't expect to swim this much, but I started to loosen up.

not sure if that 850 was supposed to be 800 or 900, but I intended it to be one of those.
when I got to the 150s, I was really feeling good. the varying pace worked pretty well.

I'm signed up for 2 10k swims now!
Swim to the Moon, near Hell, MI
Bridges to Bluffs, Knoxville, TN

I'm on the fence if I'll do our zone LCM meet and/or (or neither) a 4k swim near Dallas in July.
