It was dumping buckets of rain before I left my office to go swim today, but I hit the pool in between showers. It was gloomy and windy and not a particularly ideal day to be outside. When I walked on deck nobody was there… total ghost town. Turns out everybody, well at least those that showed up, were all hiding in the locker rooms.
I got myself changed and walked back out on deck to see maybe 1 person in the water. I talked to the lifeguards a little bit and they were in mild disbelief that people would go swim today… they must be new because (although complaining precedes it) we’ll swim in anything :)
Today’s plan was simple… ignore workout, swim without purpose. I let the 2 other guys that were there know that I’d be on my own planet today and to not wait up. I brought my SwiMP3 for entertainment and my SwimSense to do my counting for me. I launched in with a running dive, swam a 50, and then put all my stuff on. I swam for a solid 30 minutes with no breaks and got in 2000 yards. I know that’s pretty weak for a workout, but I have a lot of stuff going on this week so I’m taking what I can get.
Afterwards I went and played with my camera in the deep end for a few minutes since no one was in there and then packed up and ran back to work. Tomorrow is all work and probably no swimming, but I’m anticipating a very watery weekend.
