Stroke and stride #2

Very nice, too! Consensus was that the swim was long - I think I paced myself better on the run, in any case (or perhaps it was just a slightly less humid evening). I swam beforehand for c. 800m or so - saw a very handsome sea turtle en route - and I think I spotted a smallish sting ray beneath a protective coat of sand near the end of the race bit of the swim - it was NOT the night for a peaceful little creature to be out there, with a hundred plus blundering swimmers thundering overhead!

800m warmup

600m swim, 2 miles run
