Recognizing that if I'm going to have a shot in hell at completing the swim leg of Ironman Canada this summer, I had better get some better form on the swim. Bad technique just means you'll work as hard or harder than others but you won't go anywhere.
I joined up with the Hub City Tri Club, hoping to meet a few people and get out on some training rides with them through the spring and summer. The club has set up a swim coach for a 12 week set, Mondays and Wednesdays at 6am. Waking up at 5 can only get easier....
Today was tough, and so so humbling. I stumbled around at 5am, in the darkness drove out of the garage and over to the NAC. The swim coach is John, seems like a good guy. The group appears to be an uber fit assembly of very fast swimmers. I went in the slower lane and got absolutely worked. Today ended up being about 1600m, with the coach giving me plenty of tips out of the water.
I am a human anchor.
