Another hot day and it was an easy decision to go for a run / swim / run down around Purity Lake. Once this summer I've run down the two miles, swam, then ran back but I wanted a few more miles. An easy option is to loop around the lake. I ran by the waterfront first and dropped off googles and jammers then continued clockwise around the lake holding 8 minute mile pace. Shins had a few sore spots in the morning but running felt fine.
On the swim it's always a little difficult without leg buoyancy afforded by wearing a wetsuit but it also feels nice to just wear shorts. I loped over to sunset in 16:20 and made it back in just about the same time. My back was getting worked by holding up my lower body to the surface also exposing the weakness in my back.
The run back was uneventful but I listened to an excellent interview with Scott and Jenny Jurek.
