Yes, that is usually true with me, too. But I want to make sure the clock doesn't start dictating what I do. I want my speed to be the RESULT of my TI practice, not the goal.

It seems likely it won't be too awfully cold. The organizers report temps ranging from 68 F to 75 F. And I'm well insulated enough that I don't think that'll be a problem. Of course, I'll do as much open water swimming as I can between now and then--I should be able to swim in the local lakes by early May, giving me 2 1/2 months before the swim.
