The water felt great. I took a temp with my watch in a couple places and the first reading read 56.8° and right before I got out it read 58.2°, so somewhere between there. Here's the map of my route:
I swam for 30 minutes. Stopped took a quick drink from Lucy, and then swam back. Some non threatening, but dark clouds were shielding me from the sun coming back so it felt colder coming back. I paused a few times coming back to see where I was going. The marina opening isn't visible coming back because it faces northeast, and I can't see it from the western angle, so I just need to be patient and just keep swimming east without expecting to see how much further. Just swim man!
When I got back, I could tell the kids were having a ball. Max and Girlfriend, our two St. Bernards were enjoying the time at "the beach" and Cathi was chatting it up with several people who stopped by the boat ramp. They ooed and awed at the swim. What a fun family activity. My GPS read 2.57 miles and my stopwatch read 1:13.
The weather was fine. Not much as far as wind, so the water was flat and didn't have any issues with water getting in my mouth.
|Isaac loved being out there in the|
boat all by himself. Made him feel
"big". He had a PFD and the
water was calm, so it's all good.
I lubed up much better this time, including on my cheeks and didn't have any chaffing to speak of. What an awesome day!
Total: 2.57 miles in 1:13 @ 57°F
Much better distance and time in the water, than Thursday. Felt a little redeemed from getting out after only 37 minutes. Double the time/distance today!
