Still don't know why, but I signed up for a 5k swim (wetsuits prohibited) this Saturday. Nothing like a week of prep to swim 5k.
Do people eat/drink during a 5k swim? I assume it will take about 1.5 hours (+/- 15 min) - no plans to race, just complete. It's a 3 looped course with the return leg of each lap on the shore side - i suppose I could keep a bottle on shore and run up for a drink each lap, but honestly I have no idea how these things work. I assume it will be a moot point when my body cramps up and I quit after lap 1.
I wasn't drinking, but I also signed up at the same time for Gravel Worlds (the 75 mile route) coming up in August. I don't have a gravel bike and just dusted off my mountain bike to find I have no brakes. Summer of Mistakes 2018!
