Annie picked me up at 0500 and we were off to Pineview. The sun is REALLY taking a long time to rise and we were planning on doing a dam route but she was on a tight schedule today. First day of school for her kids so we had to be back early. Late sunrise meant only doing a buoy route.
Water felt great but my shoulders were less than happy for 1/2 half. I picked it up a bit on the way back and tried to keep up with her. I did a decent job and wasn't too far behind when we got back to first buoy. We added a little more and when we did our last little trip back, I went as strong as I could to keep up with her. I was able to keep with her for this leg. Granted, it was for only about 250 yards but I stuck with her. My GPS said my pace for that section was under 26 min/mile. Not bad. I was wiped out after that and she was just fine! Swam back in feeling glad I was able to be in the lake again. It will be few and far between now that I'm starting work again tomorrow.
