So insane heat wave here on the coast. We don't have a/c or much of anything to cool the place down because it is so very rare, record setting here. Everyone rushed out to buy fans and a/c and then maxed out the power.
So last night it got hotter at night, 90 degrees was too hot to sleep, its all weird stuff from hurricanes tracking further up baja than normal. I'd like your weather for once!
I did a combined long swim, swimming Friday night and then Saturday am, late then early. Saturday was a great day on the water super smooth and calm for some reason or another the kayak and first escort swimmer never materialized but the second relief team did (funny the first swimmer found the kayaker and went off on their own).
So Friday night solo @ 6.5 miles choppy sloppy finish @ 8 pm, Saturday 6 am start smooth and calm. I ran into other swimmers I knew early, and dolphins and fish, I took a "river cooler" out and attached a small anchor, swam it out and used it to base my feeds and meetings on Saturday. My second crew swam with me way out around point la jolla, I tried to convince them to continue on another beach and call for a ride back but they got a little scared.
Last night we got heat at night up to 90 something by 4am. When we got up it was raining a little (again not a normal so cal thing) we got a nice 3+ mile swim mostly in the rain. The winds blew the surface hot water away so we had weird sections of 61 and of 71 degree water. Something with a dark fin, likely a dolphin, followed us for a bit. Otherwise not much wildlife just rain!
I hope you all have a splendid Monday!
Finally I am doing some credit card workouts tonight since my trainer tire is shredding away and showing me its threads and my cassette seems to be discontinued and on final sale, I'm hitting the Nashbar labor day sale hard!
