HITS Palm Springs Ironman Swim

Posted by Brad Hefta-Gaub under: Swim.

Great swim! I set a new swim PR. This was kinda crazy because it was 4 laps, and we had to run onto the beach and through a timing mat for each lap. Lost the tape I’d put on my blister in the first 300 meters and had to swim the rest with a big flap of skin hanging from my foot.

This swim performance gives me new confidence that I should shoot for closer to 1:10 or 1:00 swim splits. I had a relatively low effort considering the result!

About Brad

Me in 2002 - 200lbsThis is my fitness blog. Some people who knew me a long time ago may wonder, what the heck I'm doing writing a blog about fitness. Many of them wouldn't imagine that I'd have anything to do with fitness. You see, up until age 34, I treated my body very poorly. I sat around at home, at work, at play. I ate junk food and lots of it. And the result was what you'd expect 5'4" and 200 lbs with 36% body fat. (more...)
