  1. Tuesday Long Slow Distance

    Today i decided to swim early and didn't want to be bothered with multiple sets of this or that. I opted for a Long Slow Distance swim. Did 3000 in 57 min. It was a lot harder than I expected. the part that was hard was not the physical, but the mental aspects. my shoulders were tired and tight, but that passed. Doing a circular swim and swimming constantly worked well this morning.

  3. You know you are a swimmer when...

    You think nothing of taking a weekend swim and counting that as your shower. I know I am not the only one out there that has done this.

  5. Tuesday

    had a good swim during lunch. did about 2500 in 48 min.

    I am always amazed at how people act in swimming pools.

    We had a lot of kids in the pool today. there always seems to be that one kid that makes the constant fog horn noise. And it lasts and lasts.

  7. Sat Water polo ? Swim

    Swam 3 K early the AM.

    The early swim on Sat is one of my favorite swims. Not too many people in the water and those that are there are pretty good swimmers. Got a good pace going trying to keep up with a woman triathlete next to me. She was FAST!

    In the evening i did 2 hours of water polo. This is only the second time I have done water polo and I really like it! the Sat crowd was not too competitive So I learned some skills. Even got to play goalie which i really suck at. I am amazed at the older guys who used to play in various Southern Cali universities. These guys can tread water for a long time and they are able to basically leap out of the water.

  10. Hump day

    Come Wednesday I usually feel like a bag of broken @ssholes.

    Ran 4 miles without stretching. BIG mistake at my advanced age of 36. Did it in 38 min. Today, i just hurt. Feet hurt, prob need new shoes, feel tired, need more sleep, well you get the idea. the thought of swimming is appealing only because the water will be cold and refreshing!

    More to come!!!!
  11. Monday Aug 6, 12

    got a good lunchtime swim in.

    2x150 sw
    100 K

    4 x

    50 fast
    50 recov
    100 build

    2 x 800


    Swim was good. Only problem is how the pool is managed. We had aqua runners in lap swimming lanes. they didn't have the presence of mind to move over to the slow lane. Rather they spent their time in the medium lane.

    Finished the night with Hapkido.
  12. Water Polo

    So tonight i tried water polo for the first time. It was a lot of fun! I swam about 2K before practice.

    4 x 500

    Then it was 60 min of treading water and sprints.

    Ball handling was not that tough after about 5 min it got a lot easier.
