    Sun Jan 29th, 2012, SCY Went totally postal HR SWIM

    SCY UT Swim Center: main pool north end
    noon - 1:15
    wore Speedo PRO jammer
    swam in lane 7, split it with Jim,
    beside Ed Coates in Lane 8, Larry in Lane 6, Tyler in Lane 5

    Warmed Up with 10 x 50 on 40 smooth

    the plan was to dive in at 12:10 but my goggle strap broke, so I asked for another minute then quickly fixed it and dove in at 12:11:00

    My wife Beth timed & counted using Tyler Blessing's Awesome (iphone/ipad/ipod) Postal APP
