Today’s workout didn’t exactly fit the time allotted. We had a pretty good crowd today… 6 swimmers and 2 of them weren’t regulars… but everybody except me was a little late. I was already 300-400 yards deep into my swim by the time the lanes around me started filling up. I ended up just chilling out for a little while as everyone caught up and I think that’s what put us off track enough that the workout wouldn’t fit inside of an hour. Some of the intervals in the main set were a bit too fast for some of us, but there was a nice big rest at the end of each round that let us reboot and get started together again so it at least felt like we were all doing the same thing. We wrapped up around 10 after one and I had to hustle to get back to the office on time today!

I’m doing pretty well with keeping to my goal of 3 grand or better at these lunchtime swims. Unfortunately I’m going to have to miss my regularly scheduled Thursday swim due to work. I’ll have to try and motivate myself into an after work solo trip to a pool. I’m about a month and a half out from my big swim of the year now and I need to get in all the training I can!
