    LHS, SCY

    Still super sore from the power cleans/burpees combo Tuesday. Especially traps, but everything is a little fuzzy. Also walked into the pool and the burglar alarm was blaring - did some searching and apparently the pool painting crew had taped the outside door contacts together instead of impairing the alarm so they could prop the door open and one of the contact pairs has come untaped. Took a bit to find it, so just a little delayed.

Went to a farmer's market, the zoo, water park, took the dogs to the dog park and a local sculpture park, did yard work. Good weekend. Back in the water Monday at the normal pool finally!

    Some drama over the continuation of the Masters team I swam with in the winter/spring until they closed the pool for cleaning over the summer. Admins weren't very good at keeping organization so it seems like they were going to quietly cancel the group until we all spoke up. They decided they wouldn't cancel but they were going to do better billing (fine) and want everybody to be one unified group, i.e. all do one training program or close to it (not as fine). A few of us compete (and those of us that do all have different specialties) but most are fitness. So the ones of us that compete are going to give it a chance, try to push for some speed/sprint work in the program and see how it goes. That pool opens back up next week.
