Union Reservoir

I finally got out in the open water again after exclusive pool swimming in July and August.  It was surprisingly comfortable and I was not panicky at all.  Union Reservoir has a simple set up of 3 buoys in a triangle configuration.  There were about 15 people swimming counterclockwise loops.

I swam two loops and then took a short break and then proceeded to swim four more loops resting briefly between each.  My sighting was not that great, but did improve over the session.  Unfortunately I don’t think I will be ready for the 2.4mile swim September 3rd.  Instead I will do the 1.2mile swim that day.
