    Nice to see you back, David. Did you hear about the Husky Masters swim at Colman next Monday from 7-9 pm? I'm going to try to make it down if I can.

    The GLAD website has been updated with Colman info:

    The 2011 workout schedule is set for Colman Pool. The team will meet at Colman in West Seattle from 6:30a-8:00a on Saturday mornings in place of our Evans Pool workout. Remaining scheduled dates are:

    May 28
    June 4
    June 11
    June 18
    June 25
    July 2

    We will consider other dates in July and August based on the turnout we get in the first six weeks! The drop-in fee remains the same - $9. We hope to see you there!

    Indeed, I have never blogged because I have little to say that is of any value.

    Good to see you're back David!

    "a guy" - not to be confused in any way with "That Guy"....

    I'm hoping to fit in a couple workouts at Colman Pool this summer, too.

    Now for the unsolicited advice:
    Don't wait until next week to run again! Rest for a day or two and run again. It doesn't have to be 3 miles, but running 3-4 times a week will be easier on your body than running once a week.

    Our final two Spring 2011 workouts are tomorrow and friday.
    I'm going to try to swim on Friday seeing how it's the last day and all...

    No word yet for this summer on the organized coached saturday workouts at Seattle's sole 50m outdoor pool.
    I was just about to email someone about this yesterday. I hope these workouts go this year!

    Good to see you back blogging and on the forums!

    I don't see anything wrong with starting with 3 miles and gradually increasing from there, so long as nothing majorly hurts. I'd do at least something running related before Monday though.
    When I re-started running, I started with around 2 to 2-1/2 miles (the distance to make a loop between 2 roads along a canal near home).

    You may also want to look into dailymile.com. It is a running/triathlon-focused website kinda like the FLOGs here, except your entries are interactive. I love the graphing and stats over there. If you do join, I'm aztimm there too.

    David, this is what Jazz does, really good stuff for kicking. Consider to get tech suit next year, this will be very interesting to see how fast you will do SDK.

    It will be hard to swim by yourself, a lot of pushing needs to be made. I feel, we can return in the fall back to UW pool, at least i hope for that.

    I'm planning on swimming fat salmon, and trying the 3 mile race this year. Maybe I'll go to a long course meet in Arizona or Oregon too.

    You can swim fat salmon with or without a wetsuit, it's up to you.

    Dave, you did well for 50 free and 50 fly as i understand, you swum your PB on those events last Saturday. Fat Salmon sounds good Kirk, does it requires wetsuit? Why we don't do just for fun? Can you give me more info on this, Kirk?

    Are you planning to swim any meet this summer? Fat Salmon?

    My own advice -- for what it is worth -- is schedule it so that you have 2 weeks of the lighter lifting to finish 2 weeks before PNA.

    Going from heavy to no lifting is pretty abrupt. They call it "tapering" after all...
