Miami Nike Swim

So I’m back at home, after a very long trip from china and still jet lag and tired from the trip I’m back into training mode. I did a few swimming sessions with my swim club here and today I swam the Miami Nike 5km swim, the conditions were a bit rough very windy and strong current ?!?!?! sounds familiar ??? china anyone anyone ?!?!?!? anyways i jumped in the men Open wave, this event had about 600 swimmers most of them from south florida clubs and a few triathletes, some bad asses in the race included Gary Hall jr Olympic Medalist on the 50 mt freestyle, he did the 1 mile swim so I did not have to worry about even think of trying to sprint against him ;)

I dove in and from the beginning i was a bit dead didn’t have my usual get out speed but i wasn’t worry since it was just a training session for me today, in the first 4 km i was holding in 2nd but end up in 3rd in the OPEN wave at the end, so ok. ate some food i went on a bike ride after that.

next weekend I’ll be racing in st. croix for the 70.3 and then back here for a while.

ciao
