Went to the GSL after work today. I needed to be out of the lake at 1715 and driving away before 1730. I arrived at 1600 and got right in. No one else was there and I did not want to wait. Most arrive around 1630 and get in just before 1700. Normally that is fine but I wanted to swim more than 15 minutes.
I just did laps inside the marina. The first lap I went to the buoy. The 2nd and third lap I went to the opening then turned back. By this time, others were arriving then made their way in.
The last lap I went to the buoy one last time then had to get out. I got about 1.3 miles in total...I guess. It was great to be in open water. I am TRULY dreading pool workout lately and have become lazy getting up in the morning because of it.
I just love OW too much. On a great note, I got a hold of Sylvia Marino. She is housing me and setting everything up for me for my SF swim next month. It looks like I'll get 2-3 ocean swims on Friday then my 8 mile bridge to bridge swim Saturday. I'm getting pretty excited about this.
1.3-ish miles OW
