First Open Water Swim of 2009 in Lake Lanier
Air Temp 48 – Lake Temp 59. Perfect for an Open Water Swim

It was a cold day yesterday – April 18, 2009. The air temperature at sunrise was 48 and the water temperature was 59. The wetsuit does a great job keeping your core, arms and legs warm – but your feet, hands and head are left exposed. I did get a swim in and everything checked out ok. I was definitely happy when the swim ended though.
Afterward, it was a ~22 mile ride around Cumming, GA with around 1600 feet of elevation gain. Today was a 7 mile run. My body is responding well to training and I’m looking forward to next week’s tune up race at John Tanner.
