panish Landing, a sea-side park in a protected arm
of San Diego Bay, always elicits afeeling of history and discoveryin meexcept during the annualJune triathlon that takes placethere. I always panic during theswim, never able to completethe course without stopping to tread water atleast once. Ive vowed to conquer the flat-waterswim in the bay Juan Cabrillo entered onSeptember 28, 1542.
I decided the best way was to practice itrepeatedly until I gained confidence. On a warmSunday in September, I headed to SpanishLanding for a solo workout. I felt history in thesea breeze as I donned my wetsuit and enteredthe water intent on swimming an out-and-backcourse close to the shoreline.
The first loop took about fifteen minutes, andwithout the pressure of racers around me, I com-pleted it with no problems. Bolstered with thatsuccess, I set out again for a longer and faster-paced loop. Sighting on a buoy occasionally,everything was fine until whap!the back ofmy skull exploded with blackness and bright,shooting stars.
Sorry, someone said. We didnt see you.I spun around to find a racing scull with a
number of oarsmen gazing at me. Are you all right? one of them
asked.I felt a knot forming underneath my
swim cap. I think so. I turned my head backand forth to make certain nothing felt painful,and tested movement of my arms and legs whileI treaded water. Everything seemed to be work-ing normally. When I repeated I was okay, theycontinued rowing. I decided to continue myworkout and turn around at the buoy near theentrance to the open bay.
I put my head in the water and startedstrokingleft, right, left, right. The rhythmseemed right, but my head felt a bit like a wadof cotton. If I could swim after being batteredby an oar, surely I could survive flying elbowsand kicking feet during a triathlon. This wouldbe a good test of my mettle. I sighted on thetarget buoy again, figured it would take aboutfive minutes to round, and continued swimming.
After what seemed like only a few minutes, Iheard a booming voice. I looked up.
Ahoy, me lad! Whats a bilge rat like youdoing in the water? Aaaargh.
