Lisa had to be to work early today so instead of scrapping the swim, we decided to just start earlier. My alarm went off at 0330 and we were at the lake and in the water by 0430. It was dark, cold, and we were completely alone beneath a million visible stars. It was perfect. We decided to head straight south to the dam and then parallel to the shore. When Lisa hit her halfway point with time, we turned around and swam back the same route. The wind was blowing E to W and when we were going back, we both got pushed to the last buoy west instead of straight in. Yes, the wind did it....riiiight! ;)
I got back to the green start buoy and was at 2.7 so I did a bit more to get to 3.
One nice thing about the swim today was when we were going back, Lisa took off and I got far behind her. I decided that instead of trying to keep up with her, I would go to my "natural" state and just pace it awhile. It was nice to swim rudder out again. It's been awhile...stupid pool rules!
Anyhow, I hit my 3 miles then headed to my car. The air seemed really cold this morning getting out and I was shivering when I got into my car.
Glad to have started at 0430. When I got home, I was able to take a short nap!
