This afternoon was my first foray into a body of water larger than a bathtub in a week. It was a little hard for me to be dry that long but I think my body appreciated the rest. I was a little overzealous in warm up and was hanging right besides Mike way longer than I usually do. We had 3000 planned out but it didn’t really happen. We got started a little too late and ended up cutting a set of 5 x 100 in the interest of time.


Repeat x 3
100 IM
2 X 75 (50 breast, 25 free)
3 x 50 back
4 x 25 fly

2500 yards total

During the swim I shared a few ideas that were growing in my head from my trip to the US Aquatics Sports Convention and I’m excited about something I may have brewing for next year… we’ll see how that goes. I have a ton of other things in the works at the moment that I’ll be announcing shortly once I catch up with life in general. Tomorrow I’ll be out at Avila Beach for a swim but my regular swim buddy has a late meeting so hopefully someone else shows. Our Wednesdays have been mellowing out with 2-4 swimmers for a lot of them so we’ll see if I have company or not.

    So sad to go to an aquatics convention that doesn’t have some sort of agreement with a local pool. Like show your convention pass and do laps for half price.

    In all fairness pool time was available… but it was in the morning and since becoming a civilian I have disavowed all knowledge of the concept of morning workouts… unless it’s for a race you won’t see me being too active before noon :)
