Default Anything and Everything

I competed at my first National Senior Games in August. I trained for 6 months to do the shorter distances. I don't like it. I enjoy getting into the "zone" when you do long distance swims. You can't do that when you keep hitting the wall. At the Games I took a DNA test. One of the things it shows is if you are more likely to be an endurance athlete or a sprinter. No surprise...I'm not a sprinter.
Here in Hawaii we have open ocean swimming year round. I did the Waikiki Rough Water (2.4 mi) at the beginning of the month. I have a 1.2 mi race next month. If I can find an escort kayak I will try the Double Rough Water (4.8 mi) in Dec.
