I will do a more fulsome post later – but suffice it to say that Saguaro was a great swim! Unfortunately, I had to pull myself about 3/4 of the way through the swim due to a wrist injury. I’ve had this happen before – so I wasn’t terribly concerned (other than the fact that I have three days of swimming ahead of me). So, I made a decision that I have never made before – to pull myself out. And, thankfully, I was okay with it. I got some work done on it by an excellent massage therapist afterwards and, hopefully, I am good to go this morning.
The day proved to be pretty difficult for some. We had a headwind and one friend said he is faster this year than last – but it took him 30 minutes longer this year. The wind comes through those canyons and seems to speed up. At times, I felt like I was swimming in a much larger body of water. Water temp was around 66-67 and the air temp seasonably cool in the 70s. For those of us who love cold water – the temps were lovely.
