Felt a little scattered today in the water. Tried to focus on technique and not power through with my arms. But for some reason, couldn't connect it all today.As I warmed up, my legs were sore and I couldn't help but think about those pore souls hurt in Boston. So I told myself to shut up and swim.
I got home and helped The Boss make a tasty dinner. Raw pasta A la Checca! Made with zucchini "noodles." It was so good, I had to take a picture!
About 2:00 am, halfway through the ride, I turned down a dead end alley. As I approached the end I turned and as I did I hit some sand and glass. BAM! I went down before I could unclip my shoe.
Of course, the first thing I did was reach for the camera. I kept thinking, "I got to film it for the viewers!" What a dork!
I got up and did a quick systems check. Everything seemed okay. A little busted up. The exposed nerve ending on my leg were singing their siren song. I thought, "Man, this is going to suck to clean later." So I figured I should prioritize going home to clean my leg off and headed out.

Here is a video.
As I write this several hours later, I feel okay. My neck, hip, elbow and right thumb are a bit sore. I don't know how I did it, but I lost a chuck of skin from my thumb to. Oh, well.
Time to rest up if possible. Until tomorrow my friends.
