I am swimming from Hermosa Pier to Manhattan Pier this morning

I will be meeting another SCAQ swimmer there named Anthony. I am so sore from doing all those sprints yesterday at the meet too. I feel like the Marque de Sade gave me a Swedish massage with a KGB era truncheon.

To the right left is a picture of Hermosa Beach Pier and to the left right is the Manhattan Beach Pier taken this morning at around 6:30 this morning. I got the images at which features web cams along with surf/water info including air temps for just about every beach in Los Angeles: [link] Now fill in 2 miles of water in between these pictures and that is my workout for today.

Wow, that was your work out? Pretty cool! How long did it take you to swim pier to pier (and back again?) Did you swim in a wetsuit? Sounds kind of intense.

If I swim pier-to-pier by myself with no wet suit it takes an hour.

If I swim with Anthony, who has nothing short of a cardiovascular diamond lane for a heart, and I am wearing a wet suit, and he thinks he is going to slow and I am supposedly "toying with him", it takes 45 to 50 minutes.

You and Trevr should join us! If you guys are interested email me at groovydoo[at-symbol] When you finish it feels both surreal and wonderful.

Anthony promised he would swim slower this time and we wait for everybody also.
