Met the usual good swimming friends at Hammonasset State Park, 8am.
I was planning on doing 3 loops of our course, of course the mind wanted to end early. After the 2nd loop, oh how I wanted to stop, the wind was picking up and was against the tide, so the means we had some chop to swim through.
I like to swim short distances in those conditions, but as I get tired tendons can be injured.
I took a quick feed and immediately went back for the 3rd loop, if I had stayed out any longer I would have called it a day.
I'm glad I finished, I had some mild tenderness in my left shoulder, but that's the norm for me.
Ray Gandy went back for some swimming while Liz Fry, Margaret Peterson, Petie, John and I took down the tent. Jim Bayles and Gannon Davis finished after 4 hours.
5 plus hours was enough for me.
Dream, Prepare, Succeed.
