I swam in Santa Maria today and I made one major tactical error… I only had wet suits with me. Normally I don’t really get cold on the pool deck, but standing outside in a wet drag suit in high wind got to me, no fun dude. Luckily the water was nice even though you could really feel the breeze blowing across your head and arms while you were swimming.
Since the pool was closed a lot the last month most everybody that swims with this group is a little out of sync with their swimming so today was mainly an attempt to get everyone back into their swimmer rhythm.
10 x 50 w/ fins odd – catch up/fist drill, even – build
2600 yards total
I could really feel the long course swim I did last night, but overall it was a good workout. I really really didn’t want to get out when we were done though! It was frosty out there!
In other news I got my disc of my swims at SPMA SCM Champs from LiveSwim.net today. It’s pretty cool to be able to rewatch everything in a little higher quality. You can still watch pretty much every heat from the meet at grunions.liveswim.net
