Swimming is no joke
You didn't drown and a bonus point for biking and running.

For swimming, I went from freestyle to back stoke (time to catch my breath and relax) then back to freestyle. Open water swimming is a whole new challenge. I missed the turn buoy and kept heading out into the lake until a Kayak spotted me. Still, you had fun, and that is the biggest thing. Training and open water swim are good things.
Wet suit and gear packed Ready for my next adventure.
