Did my first open water swim of the season at Rockaway Beach. This beach tends to be very wavy and makes for a great simulation of a choppy swim come race day. Again last year at IRONMAN Kalmar it was said to be choppy so I need to raise my confidence with such swims. I’m hoping to do at least 3-4 more of those at Rockaway beach. Hopefully the last of these swims is colder, again to simulate Sweden. This swim may have been at 60-65 degrees according to the lifeguards. Sweden’s water temperature last year was 60F.
