    It was icky poo hot in the pool today. That was the only negative point of the day though. I had good swimming conditions otherwise. I was solo in my lane for the first 20 or so minutes, then #2 came, and then didn't have a 3rd person till I was past 3000 yards, but the 2nd person got out shortly afterward, bringing me back to 2 in the lane. On the public swim side of the pool there were only 2 teenage girls playing for most of the session, and a mom & dad came with their 3 kids later.

    I planned to just do a somewhat straight-thru type of swim today, since usually my YMCA lap swim sessions get me pretty , but today was okay.

    Warmup/Main Set/All-In-One workout:

    I took just enough rest between each thing to change equipment, which was typically 5 seconds or less. I didn't really check times except for the couple that are noted. It was pretty much just cruising, aside from the final 500 which I picked up a bit.
