I made my way to San Luis Obispo today to swim at the big pool up there. It’s sunny out here today so I decided it would be fun to swim at an outdoor pool instead of my usual dark, tiny pool in Pismo. I mainly just swam 400′s with short bursts of faster swimming in between
100 kick on my back
4 x 50 fast fly/free
2 x 100 IM
2100 yards total
I like swimming in a different pool every once and a while because it just feels different. Some pools feel faster and some feel slower to me. The pool in SLO always feels “thicker” to me, like I have to work harder to swim in it. I can’t explain it really, it just is what it is. But by swimming there and other pools occasionally it helps me be ready for all the different pools I end up in because of swim meets.
Tomorrow I am tentatively scheduling myself for a swim in the ocean so that I can try out my new wetsuit. I don’t have a swim buddy, but I’ll have Heidi on the beach keeping an eye on me and there should be a ton of surfers out there in the water with me.
