|Avram Iancu and me - at the beach|
FEEDING ON THE GO: Kat and Patrick mastered my feeding routine and I had all the faith in the world that they were looking out for my best interests. Only one mishap occurred and it was so minor. A bottle (water only) flew away after they tossed my feed toward me. No worry but I did feel bad that we added more plastic to an already polluted sea of plastic. Sorry ocean; I promise to pick out more than I put into you. The combination of CarboPro, CarboPro supplements, plain water, and mouthwash (not mixed together mind you) sustained my energy and interest throughout. My feeds were less frequent but perhaps not terribly quick. The bottles we used - ones I posted about in a previous blog entry - had relatively small mouths so the fluid took a while to exit. That delay created a much slower feed than I expected. I would recommend a wider opening for anyone looking for tips on what to use for their swims. More on those tips later.
So at this point, I was about half-way through my swim, I was breathing on my "good" side, and I felt fantastic. The wind and waves didn't really calm down and I still felt the push from my front right side. Regardless, I felt fine and knew I was making reasonably good progress.
END OF PART 1
We need to pack up now. Our plan is to catch a train to London and tour the city. I intend to post another entry either later tonight or tomorrow. We have 5 days of non-swimming adventures ahead. I'll post more soon. Thanks for following.
