Hi — I just got into the Bay Swim in Lottery #3 :).
Mike (or others who have done this before …) — can you describe your training a bit in terms of frequency of weekly swims and how much emphasis on time/distance vs. technique, and overall build schedule to prepare? I’m about 5 months out now, training for the Rock ‘n Roll Halfmarathon, and also doing the Offseason Spin Program. I swim 3x/week now and was thinking of bumping that up to 4x/week about 2 months out and then adding the open water swims at the National Harbor once they start up again. I plan on continuing bike/run/strength … too ambitious? Would appreciate any feedback/advice. Thanks!
