woke at 6 am (slept well)

SWIM:  90 minutes

Comments:  I have had a stomach virus for about a week – and it got worse while I was in Dover so since my 4 hour swim in Dover on Friday, I have not swum until today.  I am taking anti-biotics and assume that I will be back to perfect health in a day or two.

God blessed me with very cold water today — the weather has been poor the past few days in the south of france, and today the water was ice cold — I hope it stays this cold for the next couple of weeks because its good preparation for the channel swim.

Today was my first swim since friday so I didnt have a good feel for the water, but the last 10-15 minutes, I felt stronger in the water.
