a lovely night at the pool for sure

If you’ve ever done any military service that little maxim might ring a bell. Nothing makes a drill sergeant quite as happy as a rain storm… I had some basic training flash backs when I stepped on the pool deck. It was pretty cold and the rain was really coming down… you can check it out below

I swam 3000 yards and for the most part only had to share the pool with 1 or 2 other people. It was very open water-esque. All kinds of wind and rain made it a lot more interesting. I brought out my SwiMP3 as well so I had a musical accompaniment to the rhythm of the storm.

200 swim
300 kick

Repeat x 2

600 swim

trying to play the GoSwim bubble game... I suck at it

    So cool!
    Swimming in the rain is rad!
    I love being underwater when you can see/hear the drops atop the surface. So fun!!

    Have a great weekend, mister!

    I hate rain… unless I’m in a pool… it’s kinda weird but that’s how I roll I guess :) I like feeling the rain hit while I’m swimming, and honestly I just like how it clears out the pool! I had a 50m pool largely to myself last night!

    Swimming when it’s raining is alright, it’s not like you’ve got to worry about getting wet lol. When I do running training the rain isn’t as fun though…
