4 mile open water swim... with one month to train?
i've never done any kind of endurance swimming, although in a casual sense i would say i am a strong swimmer.
i have about 4 weeks to train for this, and i really want to do it, but dont want to put myself into an unrealistic situation.
it's for charity, and if i don't finish, the money still goes to the cause. a kayaker would be paddling next to me and encouraging me as well as saving my *** if i start to drown.
i ride my bicycle about 100-120 miles per week at medium intensity and i do yoga 3 or 4 times per week. one of my jobs also involves heavy lifting and a lot of core strengthening activity. basically, i'm in great shape (already look fabulous in a speedo) but not really confident about swimming 4 miles in open water.
should i do it? i have time in my schedule to train intensely over the next 4 weeks.
