This morning I met Goody, Lisa and Liz out at the Marina at 0600. Lisa and I swam a horned Gridley Strait. The water was pure glass. Not even a ripple. It was awesome. I could see the bottom clearly about half the time. By far my favorite training swim this year.
A little worried about my shoulder. It's not a muscle or tendon. I went to see Dr. Richards for it a few months back and he said I have a bony end on my Clavical that is enlarged and needs to be shaved off. It's not a big surgery, he said he had it done on himself. It's getting painful again. I have an appointment to see him tomorrow morning. It's just too painful now and I only put 1 1/2 hours on it this morning. This will be my last BIG swim of the year, and the rest of the swims this year are frosting. I'm probably gonna need a cortizone shot for the time being, but when I get back I'm gonna need that surgery to shave that thing down.
This morning I realized this is my last swim until MIMS. This evening I have a couple of online webinars with NYCSwim to go over some race information and procedures. Looking forward to that.
