So tomorrow after work I’m making my way towards LA so that I can swim at the master meet at UCLA on Saturday. I’ve made plans to couch surf again but this time with a known quantity. I know my friend Robin’s place has a couch bigger than my brother’s whole apartment turned out to be so there shouldn’t be any emergency hotel reservations going on this time around.
Tonight I just swam, no real distance on my bike besides just going back and forth to work. In the pool I mainly focused on turns and going fast. I did a whole bunch of 25′s from the middle of the pool as a sprint with a focus on the turns. I alternated between freestyle and butterfly. My flip turns are feeling really good, I just have to fight the urge to breath right off the turns. I think I sufficiently pushed myself in my workout seeing as I felt like I was going to have a stroke by the time I was done.
Hopefully I’ll be able to swim a little bit at my friend’s place tomorrow night to stay loose. Apparently her condo micro city has a olympic size pool somewhere. I’ll try and update the blog on Saturday with my meet wrap up.
