As I got nearer to Black rock the temperature was noticeably getting cooler. When I arrived within 10 yards of the cement blocks at the shore of black rock. I took another temp: 61°F. I wasn't feeling cold, it felt comfortable and refreshing. I noticed that my drink had floated off halfway to black rock. So I'm going to get a small attachment at the top of the next water bottle, and attach it to the carabiner that I have attached to the board. No more littering of the GSL with my stupid drinks!
|Lots of gulls following me this morning|
So today's swim didn't include any drink breaks, just swim!
Did two laps of Gridley Straight in 2:18. Took some pics of the dozens of seagulls who just hovered above me heading into the wind. It was cool how many there were. With the temp and the 3 foot swells and chop I'd say today was some pretty good practice. Felt great, and never got tired or thirsty despite the lack of any drink or nutrition.
Total: 4.15 miles in 2:18
