Should I register for two 10K swims in two weeks?
I'm thinking of registering for both the Castle Mountain 10K on August 27 and the Horsetooth 10K on September 11. Both are in Colorado.
Would doing two 10K swims in two weeks be too much? I've done shorter open water swims in the past and have only started increasing my distance this year. If it matters, I'm also registered for the 2022 Swim the Suck in October.
Although I live in Las Vegas, I've been in Colorado most of this summer with my kids because of work being done on my house. I'm swimming at Chatfield Gravel Pond and Boulder Reservoir (at BAM's OWS workouts) several times a week, doing between 4,000 and 9,000 yards per swim. I scoped out Wellington Lake yesterday with a short swim and didn't have any issues with the 8,000+ feet altitude.
I will go back to Nevada at the end of July and then would come back at the end of August for the Castle Mountain 10K and stay in CO through the Horsetooth 10K if I register for both.
I'd appreciate advice on whether I should do only one 10K or if I'd be fine doing both. Thank you in advance!
