I swim, therefore I am

Frank D Totten

I swim at Florida Gulf Coast University, (FGCU) Aquatic Center and sometimes/or as necessary at the Fort Myers Aquatic Center, FMAC. One of the best locations for OWS in SWFL is at Vanderbilt Beach, Naples, FL with the SWFL Open Water Swimming Group.
When the occasional circumstances require being close to home, I can do a dip and kick at the Catalina lsle Community HOA Pool. More about me...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    SCY@Catalina Isle Community HOA Pool (1 Length/12.5 yards)
    Air temp of 60, pool at 77, 100% water clarity.
    Sunny skies with humidity at 51%

    Warm Up
    200 yds FR

    *Set 1*
    1x2000 FR
    • Build effort by 500, 1-4

    *Set 2*
    10x250 FR on 1min rest
    did each 250 as:
    1. 100 smooth
    2. 100 strong
    3. 50 fast

    200 FR warm down

    • Both FMAC and FGCU pools are closed today, tomorrow, and it is unlikely I will be able to get over to either one before Monday, so the neighborhood community pool is where I can swim the next three days.
    • Swimming in this little pool doing so many turns actually provides a good workout. However, it is mentally challenging to sustain quality stroke technique and turns with such repetition of laps.
    • It was a beautiful morning and the view is great as the pool & clubhouse overlook the first lake of the three small lakes in the Catalina Isle.
