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. 01.25.13 - Friday noon workout

    Swam w/ Dave, Blakely and Jim. Not to be outdone by panic from last week's patches of refrozen snow, politicians last night called a preemptive panic on weather this morning. As I slept, weather-peoples were ginning up a story about freezing rain and sleet. Schools closed or delayed opening and unfortunately so too did our pool. I woke up to a balmy 46 degree temperature completely unaware of last night's panic and headed off to a closed pool. I don't think the temperature ever fell below 40 and all we got was some light rain. Dave and I decided to swim at 11:30 and were happy to be joined by Jim and Blakely. I swam pretty well despite a lingering cold and throwing down a greasy cheeseburger 30 minutes before practice.
