Day 67… On the Water
Another week has gone by. I am not sure where this one went, everything since the Spartan Beast has been a blur. I am looking forward to finishing up my last bit of work for this grad school class and get back to my normal schedule, whatever that means at this point. As it is Friday, my scheduled day off and the day before a race my main focus is on hydration, laundry (sometimes I have to do the mundane things too) and getting a good nights sleep tonight.
Last night was a late night, as I was a guest on the Spartan Race Radio Show. Look for it on itunes and on the Spartan Blog in the next couple of days. You can hear about my experiences in the race and beyond that weekend. After a late night recording the show, I got up early this morning to follow my friend Jason around Woodard Reservoir for an hour and a half this morning. I was on my Versa Board (Stand up Paddleboard) and he was swimming, pretty mellow for me. He swam just over 2.75 miles in an hour and a half, I had the GPS. In case you didn’t know the ironman swimming distance is 2.4 miles. It’s a pretty substantial amount of swimming to do in one morning.
