great I swam a mile! 1760 yd 00:53 53:00 pace

I swam the full distance for my Olympic Tri at Ohio Street Beach. It helped that the water was pretty calm but this was a relief that I now know that I can do the distance. Swam with my wetsuit and I did get warm, especially in the sleeves but I appreciated the help it gave me when I flipped to back stroke or when I treaded water for a break.

Took one stand break at the 1/4 mile buoy on the way out, then 2 quick breaks on the way back to de-fog my goggles. I think I need to try a bigger style of goggle.

This took me a while but if I can manage under an hour at the Tri, I will be happy.
