Sounds like a good week for everybody.
I had a very light week. I ended up escaping the California heat wave melt down by spending it at Catalina Island at a friend's place. It was paradise. I swam in the ocean 4 days in a row, a couple of miles each day. I only had my watch tracking me one of the days. The water was so warm and crystal clear with a never-ending view of tropical fish. Water temp was between 72-76. WOW. That is a lot warmer than my usual OWS temp of 60.
On Monday the water was really rough and the currents were strong (a storm had passed through earlier). Nobody was in the water. There was a loose kayak banging around in the bay so I went and rescued it. I knew I was swimming all over trying to catch and secure it without ending up on the rocks myself, but my GPS tells a more colorful story (as you all know, OWS GPS is... an exaggeration). It took around 15 minutes to finally catch the thing and bring it in safely.
I was also able to manage an 8 mile run, almost across the island and back. I did see the coast of the other side, but didn't run down to the water because it was sheer cliff. Though I was tempted to jump off the cliff and swim back, but alas, was unprepared for such an adventure. Oh. And I played tennis. Me + ball + stick-to-hit-ball = laughable. I hit several home runs.
Other than that, just trying to stay cool in the heatwave.
Bike x2 Run x3
Next up: Santa Cruz 70.3! I hope I didn't eat too much island goodness to destroy whatever form and fitness I had built up to be ready.
Island life is rough....

Born a swimmer, borrowed a bike, laced up some runners, and the rest just fell into place for a solid MOP life.
