Pirate's Pizza Night Thursday

Next Swims: Wednesday 8/31 5:45 & 6PM, Thursday 9/1 5:45 & 6PM

Last Swim: Tuesday 8/30 6:00PM
Water Temp: High Sixties
Waves: Very choppy Monday
Water Clarity: mostly clear
Crew: The Patriarch, Diablo, Nick, Capt'n

Plans are in the works to grab pizza following Thursday's 6pm swim. Two locations are currently under consideration by the Committee. Lisa's on Oakland or the California Pizza Kitchen (aka Pirate's Pizza Kitchen). Diablo is rumored to actually be officially "IN" for this event. If you have a preference between these two locations please vote so that the Committee can take it into consideration.

Choppy evening swim conditions appear to be the "in" thing these days. The conditions are not only great in terms of a workout but also a great test of your patience. At times you pretty much feel as if you're just flailing your arms, kicking your legs and hoping the result is forward progress. Also, if you're not good at hydrating while swimming these conditions provide an excellent opportunity to force the issue....or motivation to learn how to breath on both sides. :)

I'm out of commission for the week. My wetsuit chaffing combined with a severe allergic reaction and now my sides have the equivalent of 2nd degree burns. Ouch! Doc said no lake swimming and no pool swimming (bacterial infection and chlorine). I'm on steroids, antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.....man, the colors flashing all around me, cool man...I knew there was a reason I was agianst wetsuits. I am up for the pizza though as long as a grounded pirate is invited.
