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. 01.25.12 - Wednesday workout

    Swam w/ Roger, Dave and Dave. Pool was low this morning so they were dumping cold water in to fill it up . Felt good near the returns... 70-75 degree water mixing with 84 degree water. The middle was much warmer so we had to deal with hot/cold cycling until we got it all mixed up. By the end of practice, the heat was on full blast again . Wore Nike jammer w/ a drag suit. Took drag suit off after the first set.
