    Vino burning day. Unfortunately I’ve more to burn.

    2.4K bk with short fins (40:48)
    8 x 50 on 2:00 flutter kick, 50’s on the first, then like 1:10’s remainders.

    Had the lane to myself entire swim. Ankles getting kick back. Imagined how nice it would be to swim backstroke OW early sunrise in the 80�F tropical sea using a HUD equipped goggles for navigation

    SHOUT OUT: Doug and Dr. J for spectating and starting us from the blocks. Big shout out to Srdan. I had really low energy levels today, and the heat and warm water made it worse. He pushed me to push myself more than he probably realizes. Thanks man, I am sorry I didn't bring as much noise as I usually do. Also Srdan had the fastest 100 of the bunch. He made my 1:03- look like slow motion when he stopped the clock at 1:00.9. On round two I got the better of him though

    100 fr ez wu
    4 x 50 fr fins on 1:00 (31-34)
    5 x 50 fr fins on 4:00 (31, 30, 29, 28, 28)
    50 kick

    Swimming portions were the easy part, the in-betweens got painful. My right side all the way down to my ankle felt much more than the left for some reason

    The news about such a great swimmer being struck by a craft quite upsetting. I pray he recovers fully.
