Last night hubs, Miles and I headed to our “local” provincial park so I could go for a swim along the shore while the pup played and swam too. We’ve been here a few times now, and the water is generally flat and calm. Imagine my surprise, when I showed up to find this:
And I forgot my boogie board! I stood there watching the waves in disbelief for a while, wondering if I should even try. Even Miles was apprehensive about going in:
Eventually I talked myself into it, but didn’t go out farther than I could touch the bottom, and made sure to stay within hubs’ line of sight.
It was interesting, to say the least. I was rocked to and fro, took several mouthfuls of water and often felt like I was swimming in place. I lasted 10 minutes for a whopping 400 metres before deciding that it was enough.
This may be no big deal to some, but I am more accustomed to swimming in waters like this:
So, I’m calling my 400 metres a victory! What are the most extreme conditions you’ve ever swam/biked/ran in?
