Watching the Weather in Greenwood, SC
You never know what the weather will bring this time of year. Yesterday was cloudy on my run. By 11am, the sun came out and started baking everything around. This morning things are starting off cloudy and cool again but the forecasted high is 90.
It looks like the same phenomena is occuring at the site of this weekend’s South Carolina Half Ironman. Overnight lows are in the upper 50’s/lower 60’s while daytime highs are in the 80’s. The question is – will the lake be wetsuit legal?? Only time will tell.
Of course I don’t just want it to be a wetsuit legal 78 – I’d really like it to be 73 or so. That rubber skin is HOT! I raced this distance in Macon without a wetsuit, so I’m not afraid to leave the one I rented in transition if it’s just 78.
Stats for today: 1750 yards in roughly 45 minutes with lots of rest. It is taper time after all. I threw in a couple of sets of 500 yards for good measure in the middle of a pair of 250s. Cooled down with a couple of 100s and a 50. It didn’t really seem like a workout – but then again I AM trying to rest!! I’m just not very good at resting, I’ve decided.
