Back to swimming

My leg continues to improve but still hurts. Other than calf pain, I continue to feel discomfort in my lower left back, outside portion of my left thigh and still have numbness in one of my toes on my left foot.

At noon today, I swam at JCC for about a thousand yards. It was nice and easy and lasted only twenty minutes but felt good to get back into it. It was my first workout since the Ironman. With my hurting left foot, I woudln’t venture running yet, but swimming felt good. Maybe tomorrow I will take my bike for a spin!

This is not the most flattering of pictures, but it was taken right after I finished Ironman Cabo and was administered two bottles of IV fluid. You can see that I was desperately trying to smile but it is obviously a forced smile! My body and my mind took a beating, but I was smiling on the inside for digging so deep to finish.
