Training Update: 30 miles

We are roughly three weeks away from the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim – how is training going? Last week I logged nearly 30 miles in the pool and ocean. I’ll hit my peak in the next two weeks and then – depending on how I feel – hit a brief “taper”. But, building on a lesson we learned in the English Channel swim, I don’t need a big taper period for a marathon swim. In fact, it almost seems to work the opposite way for ultra endurance events.

The highlight of this week will be two speaking engagements: I am going to talk to six-graders at a charter school in Los Angeles on “the adventures of an ocean swimmer” – at least that’s the working title.

For this week in the water: 40+ miles?
