Went to the pool tonight for my first real swim in what felt like forever. I could really feel my prolonged absence from the pool. Hopefully I can bounce back quickly. I don’t have any plans to leave town again until the Las Vegas Masters meet towards the end of January so I should be able to get back into a good groove.

It’s been pretty “cold” by coastal California standards and I think that they’ve been cranking up the heat in the pool to make up for it. I felt like I was in a chlorinated bath tub. My workout wasn’t very long but it was a start.

In other masters news… there’s been some sponsorship developments recently. Most notably BlueSeventy has announced that they are becoming an official sponsor of USMS. There is also a discount program in the works for masters swimmers. Sounds like they’re betting pretty hard that FINA won’t ban their suits. I’m definitely curious about their suits but they aren’t cheap. If the discount program is good enough and I shed a few more pounds I might give them a shot come nationals in May.
