20,000 yards total

On the way to the pool I stopped at Maverick and picked up a sausage egg bundle. These things are so good! I knew that the fuel it would provide would be critical and boy was I right!  My left shoulder was a little annoyed right from the start, but surprisingly once I got to about 15,000 yards it was totally fine and was at 100%.  Weird.  Usually its the other way around.

There were several people throughout the duration of today's workout that pushed me.  The same fast lady from last week, as well as Brad.

About 4 hours into my workout I was taking a breath to the right just before a flip turn and saw what appeared to be a slender young woman with bikini bottoms and no top.  She was sitting on the side of the pool facing the south end facing away from me.  It freaked me out.

After taking a second look to confirm my eyes where just playing games with me, It ended up being a long haired guy who was wearing a speedo.  He was very feminine and I about threw up in my mouth as I continued on with my laps.  It should be a law that dudes with long hair shouldn't wear speedos.  Speedos are bad enough on men who actually look like men.  But a dude that looks like a lady?  That's so wrong.

My bud Josh Green last weekend did a polar plunge.  I was at my Grandmas helping her out.  And to be honest, I was glad I had an excuse, that is some cold water!!!!  Here's some video of him and his brother doing the plunge.  I admire the mind over matter aspect of this....
