Some People Call Me the Space Cowboy

Whew! Quite the day we had today. We started off this morning heading out to Mullaghmore for swimming with Rachel. To warm up, we ran suicides and then a race, which I lost to Cathal. Then we learned how to enter the water properly for a rescue, and practiced some porpoise jumps. After that, Rachel marked off fifty meters, and had us swim twenty laps, a total of one kilometer. My shoulders and triceps were ripped to shreds after that. When we finished, we fooled around, doing salmon and starfish jumps off of the pontoon. After lunch, we returned to the center briefly, before heading out on a run led by Dickie. We ran over to Tullan and did circuit races up and down the big sand dune, which is where I got my revenge on Cathal. On the way back, the lads and I boosted the morale of the group by singing songs. It was a very fun and exhausting day and I look forward to next week, should be a good one.

That’s all for now folks,
