On every SwimVacation we have a day when a challenge sneaks up on us and everyone rises to the occasion. Today was that day.
Normally Wednesday is our single swim day - we give our swimmers the afternoon off from good long swims and let them play. Not so for this group - they did TWO swims before lunch!
In particular, Marianne found a new gear, new speed and new strength. I pushed her hard and she had a fantastic swim into the boat.
Lunch. A long spinnaker sail to Muskmellon Bay at Guana Island, during which our swimmers embraced the “Relax” in our motto “Swim. Relax. Repeat.”. Everyone slept. They’d earned the rest. When we arrived, out came the pull toys. Lots of silly, splashy fun on The Couch of Doom.
Will talked stroke technique while Fitz grilled us an awesome pile of steaks, and we ate and talked more shop. All raised a glass to the breakthroughs made today.
So in a day when we planned to swim a little, rest a little, and play a lot, this group swam a lot, rested a lot, and played a lot. They just can’t get enough. These days have been full indeed.
Sleep well, everyone. More adventures tomorrow.
