Now, about this epic swim.
We had a pretty good group to meet at the lake this week, and 2 husbands were taking on the kayak duties. One would go with those of us heading out into the lake to the place that I call "The Point" and the other would stick to the folks who were doing the buoys.
I was going to "The Point". I had conquered this route before, but this time the water was very, very choppy. Because it was such a lovely weekend, boaters were out en mass and it's amazing how they kick up such waves even when they aren't going very fast.

We did 2 loops out and back to The Pointe, and then 2 more loops around the buoys - for a total of 1.8 miles. My HIM is only 1.2 miles, so I did well and above what I will need for race day!
I am so fortunate to have found this fantastic group of people to train with! They are encouraging and supportive (same ones I've been riding with) and have such a wealth of knowledge.
There are 4 of us who are racing this weekend - on in Chattanooga for an Oly tri, one in northwest Atlanta for a sprint tri, and two in northeast Atlanta for a sprint tri. I am so excited for all of us! The only way it could be better is if were were all in the same event!
