What did you guys do for workouts. I was joking with Jasoninhalifax that the fish workout should be 150x50 meters for Canada 150, so we have a local Lake called Meech Lake with a standard beach to beach 4000m distance, so I did the longest swim of my life and swam beach to beach to beach. First 4000m was just under 62 minutes. Then on the way back, I probably took a slightly longer route close to shore as I did want a bail out option in case something happened with my funky disc nerve, but that held out. Instead, my arms started getting a bit heavy from not being used to wearing a wetsuit, and in the last 30 minutes I ran out of blood sugar and crawled in the last part and lost a decent amount of time. Ended up with 72 minutes heading back. Probably swam a bit long, but mainly not enough wetsuit time.
Thanks to all the Canadians that came for the first 98 years before me and for the next 52 years, thanks to all of you who have made living in this land so fabulous. The rest of you who are not Canadian, come and visit. The ice is broken off the Lakes finally LOL!
