Sinsheimer pool in San Luis Obispo was where it’s at today! The place was packed this afternoon. It was just one of those days where you can’t blame everyone for coming out. It’s in the mid 80′s, clear skies and bright sunshine.
Unfortunately on Sundays they do a mixed lap swim/rec swim and there was only 5 or 6 lanes for lap swimming. I hung out in the bleachers for a while hoping for a lane to open up but instead they started filling 2 people deep so I figured I needed to pick a lane with someone that was at least swimming not aqua jogging or something like that. During the course of my swim I churned through about 4 different lane mates but they were all cool with splitting the lane so it was never an issue.
I got a workout in my email from Coach Nancy last week that I modified for a solo workout. Her’s was like 4500 yards, but I can really only stay focused for 3k by myself. Here’s what I ended swimming:
200 drill (fist/catch up by 50)
3 x 100 descending
3 x 100 fly/free by 25
3 x 100 back/free by 25
3 x 100 breast/free by 25
6 x 50 free alt. easy/fast
3 x 100 kick w/ fins
3 x 100 pull
300 cool down
3000 yards total
It’s days like this that make me wish I were independantly wealthy so I could do this every day! Maybe I need to switch my workday to start at like 2PM and get off at 11PM so I can have early afternoons to swim and ride bikes… hmmm
