Day 514 - Rollin', Rollin', Rollin' and Swimming!!!

July 6, 2014       235.4 lbs.

Hey guys, sorry for being MIA! I have more work now than I can take and have been underwater for a couple weeks now.

First let me give a shout out to my new sponsor! Thanks for the rollers Matt! These are some very nice rollers and effective tools for active release. If you are training, you want to be rollin'. The day I got them I rolled my plantar fasciitis foot over the small one and it immediately felt better! Give them some attention.

My plantar fasciitis is better but not 100%. I am itching to get out and run though. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

Emotionally, I feel.  .  .  strange. The only way to describe it is, I feel like my soul is being turned inside out. Now, I know that sounds strong, but I actually mean it in a good way! It's very weird and I think it is related to eating raw food somehow. I just feel "lifted up" in a weird way. At the same time, I seem to be very sensitive to negativity. I can't really explain further. I know this is going to sound hippy drippy or metaphysical or something like that, but I feel like the energy inside my body is changing. And I am not even into vibrational energy or metaphysical stuff personally. It is just how I feel.

Today I swam in Alamitos Bay with my new buddy Roland Valdez who brought a friend whom introduced himself as "Dio." At witch point I had to suppress an urge to make "devil horns" with my hands, stick out my tongue and bang my head.

 Of course, Dio was a swimmer since high school and took off, not to be seen again until the end.

 I had 3500 yards assigned which is 1.9 miles. Water felt great. My wetsuit is still chaffing the heck out of my neck even though I used both Body Glide and Bag Balm! I have marks all around my neck now!  .  .  Sigh  .  .  .

At the end of the swim, I like to take a few minutes and just float and connect with the water. Movement is life and the ocean is nothing but. I spent a few moments hovering like I was Iron Man or some kind of superhero taking it all in and being at peace. With the sun going down casting the palm trees in silhouette and me gently drifting in the warm water,  I was content.

Until tomorrow my friends.
