I did it. I dragged my butt out of here and when to Waikiki. I swam Ala Moana. They have a marked 1000m swim right off shore there. I was going to do the entire 2000m but after completing the first 1000 I was tired, so I got out and walked back - a nice 1/2 mile walk on the beach.
My time was as follows:
1st 500m : 14:20
2nd 500m: 15:59
total time: 30:20:10
Not too shabby for my first open ocean swim in probably 6 months. I was pleased.
After the swim I pulled the bike out and went for a little ride - the operative word being little. I ended up only going 5 miles. Oh well, better than nothing I guess..
Couple of mistakes I made and need to remember for next week (yes, I'm going to do this again):
-Don't use the clear goggles in Waikiki. My favorite goggles are clear and are great for swimming in the pool at 6:00 a.m. Not so hot on a nice sunny day in Hawaii.
-Don't ever try to ride your bike in Waikiki. I went only 5 miles but it took me 1/2 hour. Traffice is horrible, the streets are horrible, it is not bike friendly, and the taxi drivers are down right scary.
Okay, a good day. I'm off to do some domestic stuff then it's chilin' on the couch with the sunday paper.
