2 days of what I will call traveling HELL are over. We are in the Outer Banks for our yearly week long vacation. I have not been able to swim the past 2 days. I was restless yesterday since our flight got bumped back 24 hours.
Slept in while Patricia went for a run. When she got back I was able to hit the beach. Atlantic Ocean was calm and inviting. I could tell she missed me. I missed her too.
I measured out a landmark yesterday that is .5 miles away. Did 3 laps to get 3 miles. After each lap, I swam in close enough to shore to stand up and get a drink. Then I would swim past the break and parallel to shore. I could feel the 2 days of travel. My body was tired but my mind was HAPPY. Probably was swimming slow as tar but did not care today.
3 miles OW...happily!
