La Jolla ocean swim. No wetsuit.

There was a hammerhead shark sighting on Saturday in La Jolla. A big shark! Two fisherman on kayaks captured a great video of the shark. The shark was acting aggressively, probably wanting the tuna the guys had and were bleeding out. The video shows the shark circling the kayaks and later bumping int them. The shark then swam over to a group of swimmers and started circling them. Fortunately, no one was injured. Lifeguard and other people on boats and kayaks helped to evacuate the water. The ocean between the shores and the cove in La Jolla was closed for the rest of the day on Saturday. There was an advisory on Sunday and the shark, or another hammerhead, was again spotted very close to shore. They lifted the advisory on Monday morning.

Not much of a beach crowd this evening. Still a big group of swimmers for the swims. There are 3 groups on Monday evening. The 5:30 long swim group swims the mile from the shores to the cove and then back (my group), the 6:00 group swims to the half mile mark and back to the shores, and the beginner swim that swims parallel to the shore. There was still a big turn out! My group had 11 people and the 6:00 - half mile group had about 20 people.
No sharks!

Short and easy pace ride with Mike up the coast. Another heat wave in San Diego - glad we rode early as it was already hot at 7:30.

Swim
  • 14m
  • 600.00 yards

Walked to Moonlight beach to do a very short swim after the ride. It was hot and it felt great to just get in a do a little swim and play in the waves for a while. No wetsuits needed!

Since we live on the coast and get a great ocean breeze, our place doesn't have air conditioning. This is only the second time (first time was two weeks ago) that we really would have liked to have it. Decided to get out of the heat and go for ice cream and an afternoon movie. I have been wanting to see "Inside Out," the Pixar move. It was great! Very funny and very well done.

Finally feel almost normal! Planning to get back to really working out this coming week. I also need to get the diet under control - REDUCE STRESS EATING.
