SWIM (@Wenonah Lake, open water swim), swam 8 loops at about .2 per loop. Felt strong. Water was especially dirty and nasty tonight. Needed 2 Q-Tips to get all the shit out of my ears. I sighted a lot better tonight, although my goggles were fogging up. I used my old goggles, because I didn't want my new ones to get shitty. Good call.
Also, got some good news today. Jack at the shop has a 9 speed, 12x25 cassette to put on my bike in prep for Lake Placid. I've been using a 23 all this time, and I think the extra gear will make a difference.
