    Thank you Patrick! I would have preferred it to be Friday am as well. If you ever figure out a way to make that race not hurt please fill us all in. I'm definitely not a 4IMer but I do like that race. Mostly because I have much I can improve on.

    Congrats on all of your swims and how great is it to have your family there with you. Well done sir.

    75 free

    Again, subtract 1 min to get the add-up time. This can be less frustrating than trying to take 5s breaks.
    Looks good and I'll definitely give it a try. Thank you

    50 bk/br r 5

    Good point Steve. I'll personally make sure they are taken care of. Come on up any time

    Those growlers go flat quickly. Don't make me drive up and open them


    (yes, beer is good in a coffee cup too)

    Nice workout!

    I might work this one later when I have block access (except for the pulling).

    Lol Steve! I can do it but it may not be very pretty.

    You are lucky, I need fins for easy swimming with back . The stern sinks unless I kick at a not so easy pace.
