Counting the Hour Swim

The annual hour swim was held today. I was up early and over at the pool by 06:45 to count for Holly. I downloaded a new app for my phone last night that records split and cumulative time every touch of the split button. These phones are amazing and so handy. Oh, and it worked!

In the second round at 09:00, I counted for World’s Strongest Man. It was his first swim in almost 8 years – good way to get started. He got in 4350 yards.

After the swim Rod and I went for a ride up Piuma. I haven’t been up there since the epic day in 2004 when the Kwaz, Jaime, Rudy, Danny and I did it along with Fernwood, Stunt, Mulholland and possibly others. We went up in 33 minutes, nothing like the 21 minutes I was capable of doing in the 80’s and early 90’s, but such is life.

It was a beautiful day for a ride and I took a short video on one of the descents.
