My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

  1. 01.07.12 - Monday workout... sort of

    Swam at Anaheim Marriott pool solo. Swimming options are slim for the next couple days. I was pleased to see the Marriott pool was about 25 yards. I walked it off this morning and it indeed looks to be about that size. The pool is a sort of l-shape with lots of odd angles. The ends of the "L" both had stairs but if figured it wouldn't kill me to flip before the wall. So, I started off at the only wall and swam toward the stairs that were furthest from me. As I got closer and closer, it kept getting shallower. Suddenly, my fingers are touching the bottom and I've got 10 feet to go. I got to the stairs and sat down it what was the "toddler end". Maybe 18 inches. That's what I had to work with so I made the best of it. Had to learn to make an awkward open turn in shallow water but it worked out.
