Swim Report – August 27, 2016 – Late Summer Chops

Five of us met out at L1 on Saturday morning at the tail end of a thunderstorm. There was some lightning on the eastern horizon, so we had to wait a half hour before getting into the water. But we were pleasantly surprised when we did!

The official temperature came at a uniform 66.5F – a significant improvement over earlier in the week. This warmer water made the swells and chops much more tolerable!

I got in just over a 1/4 mile swim before bailing out to walk back. I couldn’t get any sort of rhythm in the chops, and they kept randomly torquing my right arm around – not the best thing for my still ailing shoulder. But given the tumultuous swim conditions, I still got in more than enough of a workout!
