    PM (not) Swim:

    Hustled out the door to get an afternoon swim in, only to have torrential rain and severe thunder/lightning close the pool the moment I got there. Killed the hour before CORE7 with lots of stretching and a few weights : hip abductor/adductor (for my groin), incline leg press (2x15 @ 90#), and shoulder rehab with bands.

    Finished with CORE7 class.

    Disappointed I couldn't get a second swim in today. Had a kick set planned, which I will just recycle for tomorrow or Friday.
