    Few watches can track an OWS when on your wrist. Fewer can do it well. I'm really impressed with my Suunto Ambit 2's performance. That's exactly where I swam.

    Last night was so good, I went back for more. Sunny this evening, so there were a lot of kayakers out there. I figure-having a boat... that's cheating. Went a little further today, and on t... read more

      If you have a boat, you could do Josh Billings (bike, kayak, run) right there in Stockbridge ;)

      Yeah- I'd love to do the Josh. But, I'm not in Lenox that time of year. and Jeff- yeah, my swimming gets good every time I have a serious running injury. I'd so much rather be running, but OWS is cool.

      When I swim OWS, I attach my Garmin on a belt around my waist, and flip it on my back, so that the Garmin moves straight w/o having to deal with my arm strokes. (I have the 220, very basic GPS watch.)

      I'd love to- but I've got some life issues that are a priority for the next few months. So- no near term races. They take up too much mental space.

      Understood...although I bet you could just step right up to a Oly Distance and do well (enough) without too much personal sacrifice. But I get it.

      I'm sure I could do an Oly tomorrow without any issues. Wouldn't be my fastest, but I could have fun. But I only race when I'm trained and ready to do my best.

      Gould Meadows? Is that a good place to swim from? I've only swam from the boat ramp, or the stockbridge town beach. But yeah, the Bowl is very swimmable. Hmm- I could bolt out of work and get a 2nd swim in tonight. :)

      In theory you are supposed to be a Stockbridge resident to swim at the town beach... if you feel comfortable, do that ;)

      doesn't even matter what kind of workout it is. If you're around on weekends while you're in MA, I'm sure you could find some prime ponds to drive to. We have lots of them! meh, weeds.

      Sorry I missed your post from a few days ago Morey. OWS are cool, but certainly challenging from pool swims. The lack of visibility, the threat of boats in the area, and the weeds. I'm convinced it's the arms of a kraken when I hit them. Hope you are having a good trip and the Achilles is resting well.

      Watch out with that Achilles, Morey: untreated and/or unrested it could either tear (bad news) or become chronic (extremely bad news). Oh, and watch out for cars too.
