If this was your first rough water and you weren't familiar with the course and the best way to navigate it, I would expect that you could probably knock 5+ minutes off the next one just from improved navigation.
hmm given your comment, maybe i shouldnt be so hard on myself!

i have done the WRSwim 2x before. my best time was 1:20 so that was why i was disappointed with my 1:22 this time.

i actually swam with my Garmin 305 GPS watch stuffed under my swim cap. you can see the results here:

The Waikiki Rough Water Swim 9-5-11 with Garmin 305 GPS

looking at the GPS track, i didn't waver much this time around - just was slow. oh well back to the TI drawing board haha. i have a pretty good idea on what i need to work on - got an Alcatraz crossing coming up and i'll see how i do there!

keep on swimming!

The two coaching sessions I had with you were really helpful. On my own, I never would have discovered the problem areas to work on that you pointed out for me. I'm practicing short slow swims with major concentration almost every day now, so I am hopeful that I will have some good improvement before your next trip over here. If you are over here in early November, you might be interested in the annual Turkey Swim on Nov 12th. Here is a link to the application:

Default But does it float?

hoping the new one floats....made a lifejacket for my old one as it had a habit of slipping out of my hand on it's way out of my cap when chugging spms on long swims..but the lifejacket is bulky and not very pretty
