Above: Video of the start of my swim on day 4, having had a really bad night's sleep.
Day 4 of the training trip to Spain, was a bit of a strange one having been awake for most of the night with bad indigestion! Our hosts for the trip, Mike and Monica Ames, had taken us to a restaurant called "Pepe's" the night before, and having enjoyed a wonderful seafood meal, they told use they had a surprise for us. We went to this ice cream bar where we had the biggest ice cream you ever did see. The whole night I was tossing and turning feeling physically sick!
Getting up next day, I was shattered and told Bex that the most I could manage this morning was a 3KM swim with the tide. We walked the full length of the beach, where I got undressed and into the water and set off tentatively on my swim. The temperature bottomed out at 16.4 Degrees Centigarde on my watch today. Bex had a bit of a video day today rather than a photo day, and the three below are the only photos she took (excellent they are of course!).
I swum past the rocks and saw the fishing boat again. If you ever go to Estapona, the seafood is superb, but don't eat one of them ice creams after it! I felt sick for the whole swim, and was very surprised that I wasn't!
At the end of the swim, I got out and walked back up the beach for a bit of a relax on the sunbed. It was bit disappointing as I had wanted to do a longer swim that day, but tomorrow was another day!
Total distance for the week so far (4 Days): 15,000 Metres.
