Brick, bricks everywhere! Today I had another big swim of 3500 yards and an easy hour bike.
At the end of the workout, little Jacob showed up with his dad again. He spotted me from across the pool and waved from his tippy toes! He jumped in the water and took off like a shot, buzzing back and forth. Any corrections, he would adapt immediately. I told him about "Mr. Sinker" and mentioned that he was just learning to swim at 40. Jacob goes, "Wow! How old are you?" I told him 43 and he responded with, "Wow! Your older than my dad!" Great. I noticed he was doing a little freakout if he reached for the edge of the pool and couldn't grab it. So I taught him first how to float using only his breathing to stay up and then how to recover if he was swimming and got tired and needed a rest.
After the swim I headed home for some dinner. The Boss had made 100% plant based and raw tacos!
After dinner I headed to Chandler Blvd to ride. This was actually the first time I was riding after full dark, so I was able to test the new Serfas Thunderbolt lights.
I even had the idea to use the headlight to help with my accountability photos.
During the ride I went back to the alley I had my recent crash in. I needed to do it for some reason. It was actually a little less foreboding in person.
Until tomorrow my friends.
