clare and i have been spending a little time at the south end rowing club http://www.south-end.org/ for some cold water swimming during this heatwave...btw, the air temp here in SF has been in the 50's with a good helping of wind and fog.
the water temp has been in the mid to high 50's which is quite the shocker when the water back home is nearly 20 degrees warmer. i planned to do a 2 hour swim my first day out here, but lasted only 45 minutes. day 2: 60 minutes. tomorrow i'm shooting for 90 minutes, but won't get started until 6 PM.
so far it looks like i might be doing an alcatraz swim on friday, the golden gate on saturday http://www.goldengateswim.com/ and the cruz cruise on sunday http://cruzswim.org/MeetSheets/2%20M...zCruise.09.pdf
i'm hoping to get my 4 hour 2010 MIMS qualifying swim over early.... we'll see.
