I felt so good I didn't want it to end. I didn't feel really cold and could have gone alot further. I ended up just going around the red buoy at the end to get in just a little extra. But I felt like I could have gone twice as far today. Coming in to the marina at the end, the water temp dropped like a couple degrees. Definitely noticeable and enough to put a chill in my bones and make me shiver a little afterwards. Next time. I'm really gonna step it up. I'm wearing my SSD and going out to the red buoy and back. A 1 mile route.
Jim ended up going 30 minutes in that temp. We all agreed that it feels fantastic at this temperature and we can't really call it a get together of the WFPBC anymore. More like just a group of regular open water swimmers who don't wear neoprene. I event went to my single latex cap this time. What an awesome swim!
It's gonna be awesome. I already told Goody I wasn't gonna be able to go. I hope I'm still invited on the boat. Now that I paid the airfare, I really can't take back out. No options for taking ANY days off work. It's a go for Catalina Channel baby!
