The highlight of this week was swimming in the ocean in FL on Thursday. This was my first open water swim. I was nervous before as I didn’t know what to expect and especially since the ocean isn’t smooth like a lake. I wasn’t sure how I would handle the waves and swells. In the end, it actually went really well. I did the swim with a couple co-workers and so it wasn’t my planned 2000m. We ended up doing 1000 yds. We are already planning another ocean swim when I’m back in FL. I hope we can do 1500m the next time.
The disappointing workout of the week had to be the planned 2hr 15 min ride. For that duration, I couldn’t fathom doing it indoors so I ventured outdoors in about 48F temperature and windy. It did not go well. I managed about 30 mins and called it a day. I was numb! I can’t wait for some nicer weather so I can ride long outdoors.
Unlike my previous weeks, I have two orange workouts. The short ocean swim, which I don’t mind, and the abbreviated outdoor ride.
This coming week is a recovery week.
