Default Super OW practice

On the Kona Ironman course:

1000m warm up
Focus: keeping balanced through the swells

1000m swimming with dolphins (as close as 6 inches)
Focus: no bubbles and staying relaxed. Dolphins don't like bubbles and will stay away from tense energy. Very good incentive.

1000m
Focus: picking up the tempo while keeping the "smooth feeling"

I love living here!

EWA thanks for the wake up, very nice to read about good vibes with nature. Wow hope to maybe get back to Kona area within the year. Would you take me for a swim, never done any ocean swimming, we were in Kona for the 06 IM with a participant and found the area delightful.

Thanks Again
Be Well and Swim Silent

If I'm on island (I live part time in Kona and rest of the time in Oahu) I'd love to join you or anybody else for a swim. If I'm not here, the swimming community is very friendly and you can go down to the pier and just ask to join a couple of people.
