Thanks for the advice. I will be doing the Alcatraz Invitational, put on by the South End Rowing Club, 09/08/2012.
Right now I am swimming in a pool, 5-6 times a week, about a mile each day. In april, I will buy a suit and start swimming at their club on the weekends, to start getting used to it. As a former surfer, I feel comfortable in open-water. I am also practicing techniques is the pool; breathing from both sides, sighting, relaxed strokes. I am hoping to build endurance/lose weight over the next few months, then REALLY start training in April.
