50 Meters is Hard...

So they switched the Osborne Aquatic Center Pool to 50 meters today to get it ready for Monday's HOTV Triathlon. Why not take it for a test ride, said I. It'll be a nice little practice run for the race...'s been a long time since I've done laps in a 50 meter pool. That baby is loooooong. Swimming in 25 yard pools all the time really doesn't get you ready for a swim where you don't get to push off a wall every 30 seconds. I was already a little worried about the hilly bike course, and now I'm a bit worried about the swim as well.

Ah well, it's just another race. Start slow, finish strong...or how about start slow, finish...yep, just finish.
