Wetsuit Training

Sunday, August 13, 2006

With Chicago Triathlon just right around the corner I figured I needed to get some more open water training in. I also figured that I needed to get some time in my wetsuit just in case water temperatures are low enough. It went really well. Its crazy to me how boyant those things make you.

I swam at the lake at my mother-in-law's house. My wife, nephew and a few of the dogs came down to watch and play in the water.

Once I got used to the feeling of the suit and how it "floats" the lower 1/2 of my body I swam for around an hour non-stop.

There was a group of people docked at the nearby beach who talked to my wife about what I was doing and she explained. Once I finished my workout and was coming out of the water they all cheered and wished me good luck. Now, if I could figure out a way to get people to cheer for me after every workout....

If you'd blog after every workout, we'd cheer you from here!!!!

so you were swimming around Otter Lake in your wetsuit? That's priceless :) I'm guessing that you were causing a commotion - "is he scuba diving or what?"

I hope the race is wet suit legal, it'd be a shame to only use it in Otter Lake and around the home.
