She first started the weekend with a 2-mile swim on Friday evening and followed it up with a 1-mile race on Saturday morning and the elite 5 km race on Saturday evening against some of Great Britain’s best swimmers. After she was finally was able to catch a decent night’s sleep, Sunday became a nice workout when she did three 1-mile races in a row.
“We did 3 mile races in a row with a little rest in between,” the pro Californian swimmer said. “There was just enough time to change out the timing chip and switch to the proper cap color. It was basically 3 x 1 mile on 30 minutes. Anyone could swim any wave until it filled up based on the distance and time preference.”
She finished each one with a smile, similar to the other 12,000+ swimmers over the Great North Swim weekend.
