Met Gords at PV today at 0530. Haven't seen him in awhile and it was nice to meet up with a good friend for a swim. I planned on being there for awhile and he only had time for one loop. Out of curiosity, I wore his swimmerbuddy instead of my SSD. I'll admit that I actually like it quite a bit. I'm seriously thinking about getting one now. I did my traditional buoy lap and Gords wanted to stick to the outer edges and do a longer loop. I finished my lap and Gords was still really far away. I swam a bit more to kill some time. He came in and I needed my keys to get some more grease on me. I was pretty impressed with the swimmerbuddy and Gords offered to let me borrow his. I declined but have been doubting that decision ever since.
I did another buoy lap but this time I turned my GPS on. When I finished, it read 1.8. That is about right. I decided to do the longer loop for my last one. Gords said he thought it was just under 2 miles. Boy was he wrong! LOL I finished the longer loop knowing there was no way I just swam barely 2 miles. Final distance on my GPS read 4.32 which means the loop was 2.5 miles! Just a bit off...
With my 1.8 added to that and the extra I swam, I know I did over 6.3 miles. I'll round down to say 6.3 only. Rather sell myself short on distance than put a longer distance down I did not do.
I felt great when I was done. Time moved by quick enough and my arms felt good for the whole swim. Easy day tomorrow then another 6 miles for Wed.
Thanks for joining me Gordon. It was good seeing you.
6.3 miles OW
