#pec 140 #edim #swimming Alarm call just after 4, and a nice, healthy brekky in, transition prep was a relaxed, but focussed affair, chatting with my mates and just going thru the motions of swim readying. Started toward the back for less stress and to enjoy the moment, Gary R. and I were in good spirits after a late warm-up swim, and joked around about the day to come. Once we got down thrum the funnel to the water, we wished each other luck, and made our way in. I took my time rinsing the goggles and fitting them on while wading in, and began to swim as I was ready. Stopped a couple of times to re-fit the goggs(last minute change to softer gasket), then slowly got into a self-imposed speed limit and rhythm. Some highly irritating fellow competitors' navigation skills annoyed me, but I found myself thinking that they weren't meaning to break my rhythm, and just eased up, got going again as required. A fast, but zig-zagging twonk really tested my patience, constantly veering across me for around 5/600m, as did some feet-clawing drafters, but I stuck to my plan of down-pacing. Nice wee stop at the end of first lap in the shallows(lol) and at the end of second-maybe slight over-hydration. V glad I chose to invest in super-thin sleeveless wetsuit; needs more concentration on technique, but kept me cool. Walked thru T-1 very relaxed and comfy, almost unstressed physically.
