Big Swim

Today's workout was about 2.4 miles (actually 4200 yards)--the same distance as for Ironman. I woke up this morning at 80, ate some Luna Moons (24g) before and one chocolate GU (20g) midway through the swim. BG 15 minutes after finishing was 124. I think I may have been low before I ate the GU but I didn't want to get out of the pool to check. I felt okay, a little tired, but got through it. I plan to eat a GU midway through the swim at Coeur d'Alene, since it is a 2-lap course. My basal rate this morning was 0.9 one hour before and throughout the swim. This will probably be a good rate for the race, especially since I will be both more rested and anxious.
