The 30 minute mile

The swim went well today. I did it the other day in 36 minutes, Then this morning I did the half mile, just to get loosened up, and it took 16 minutes. I figured that if I can do the half in 16 minutes I can do the mile in 32, and if I can do the mile in 32 minutes, I can do it in 30.
My time was 29 mins and 17 seconds, and I came in 110th out of 546 swimmers.
It was pretty rough, wave-wise, but the current helped us all. I had some foot cramps about half way and a couple of bad calf cramps about 3 quarters of the way through, but I just kept swimming.
It was good.
I didn't win any random prizes though

Oh yeah, PS, it was nice and sunny too!
