    7/26/2018 Pool Workout
    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.

    Kick: 300 yards


    I woke up very sore this morning, probably from weights at the gym yesterday. was so tempted to just skip the swim, but I dragged myself over there.
    I haven't swum any fly without fins in a few months, and I definitely felt that 25. I probably rested 10 seconds or more after it (according to my watch my time was 16, actually similar to with fins earlier in my workout). Perhaps some day I'll be at a point where I can easily swim fly effortlessly.
    I didn't have a workout planned for today. thought of doing 200s or something else that sounded boring, then I thought up this. ended up being a decent workout. not the volume I usually get in (usually around 4k), but I'll make that up with my long swim on Sunday. This was a little more stroke than normal.

    TTL: 3700 yards

    The aerator was fixed and running this morning! It may be psychological, but there's something about seeing that water going, some hitting me when I swim under it, that makes me feel cooler.

    I hadn't done fast 50s in forever. even though I was a little sore from yesterday, maybe the aerator gave me motivation to do it today. had some great times (for me):
    * first 50s breast: both 38
    * 50 back w/fins: 33
    * next 50 breast: 40
    * 50 fast free: 29

    It felt great to get under 30 on that 50, especially at the end of a workout.
    Even on the 200s, I comfortably held 2:45.


    yesterday I did another swim @ Barton Springs. started a little later this time, at 6:30, so I wouldn't have to swim in the dark (that kind of freaked me out last week). I stayed a little later and got in 2 hours. I stopped just once, after 10 loops, then did another 7.
    my watch had me swimming just under 6 miles, but realistically I think I was about 4.4
    it was getting busy, especially toward the end, but most people really didn't get in my way. There's one area where they stand, some go off the diving board, or float.
    and I really love the water temp at Barton Springs!
    I met a swimming friend I know from AZ (we swam masters together in Tucson, then we both moved to Phoenix and swam with the ASU group). she's lived in the area for 8 years and this was her first time at Barton Springs. she only did 5 loops, then took this picture after she got out:


    I think I'll do 1-2 more long swims at Barton Springs (2-1/2 hours or so) before I begin my taper for my event, on Aug 19.
    I've heard mixed things about the water temp there; the website says 70-75, but some who've done it recently said it could be 78. I may swim at a normal lake once or twice before (but after my peak swim). it won't be long, about 90 min.

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!

    AM SCY Solo @ LRRC "FRY-day Fly Day"

    It is now 96 degrees with a heat index of 109. It was already well over 90 when I got in to swim a little after 9:00 am. The club team was hogging every lane in the LCM pool so I went SCY, but that pool's temperature was probably 85-86. Needless to say, I was equal parts baking and boiling this morning.

    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.
