15 crabs... 55 minutes
(Delayed post from Friday 6/27) 15 crabs and 2 hermit crabs, that is how I kept myself going. Hardly enough to get excited about but just enough to keep swimming for 55 minutes straight, my longest in the ocean. I swam to the pier and back... about 2.4 miles round trip. The time is not boding well for my P2P race as I was hoping to do about 55 minutes but I have heard the current really pushes you along after Fort Gorges so their is still hope, as well as the fact I will be in racing mentality. I have been feeling somewhat sluggish in the ocean compared to how fast and smooth I have been feeling in the pool and lake. I think it is the cold, as well as the endurance required with waves pushing me around.
