    20x50 @ 1:00 "Progressive Freestyle" w/ SNKL

    Total: 5000

    So I had some issues with the water aerobics people towards the end of my practice. The back story here is that I got in the water at 7:25 AM. Water aerobics class begins at 9:00. I was swimming in lane three of an eight lane pool, but there is only one lane line strung up (the one between lanes two and three). I was on the last 6-8 50s of my warm down at 8:55 when the aerobics people got in and started "walking" the width of the pool. Now seeing me in there, I would have thought these people could have the sense to stop at the black line in lane 3 and turn around, as opposed to going all the way to the lane rope. I had wedged my self as far against the rope as possible to maximize their room, but really, how can 11 adults need 75% of the pool? There was an old man lap swimming in lane two and swim lessons going on in lane one so I didn't think it fair to them (they had been there for 30-45 minutes already) to make them move for me. This one lady kept intentionally stepping in front of me when I swam by so as to generate a scene. She kept trying to yell at me about the fact there was a class going on, blah blah blah. When I got out of the water, she says to me, "You know there is a lap swimming pool down there?" (gesturing to the LCM pool). As if to say "hey I think you are confused, your kind is supposed to be over there!" I said, "yeah I know," and walked off, which this woman continuing to lecture me louder and louder as I got farther and farther away.

    I really don't think there is any one particular group of pool users that act any more entitled than a water aerobics class. They absolutely refuse to find a way to coexist with anyone using the pool at the same time as them. Anyways, had a fantastic practice. Rant off.

    Sunday:
    Another swim @ Barton Springs.

    My goal was 20 loops...and I fell short with just 18.
    My watch registered:
    4.75 miles
    2 hours 47 min
    2094 active calories (2405 total)

    Met some friends and chatted for a bit so had a little bit of a late start (about 6:45 am). Water seemed cooler than last week, but I thought I could go with it.
    As I swam in to turn near where we started, I kept an eye out for them. After 5 loops I saw them, they had done 4 and were calling it quits. I pressed on.
    Other than that brief (maybe 20-30 seconds) stop, I didn't stop at all. And that was part of my downfall. I really had a tough time warming myself back up again. My arms felt like they would fall off, especially on that last loop.

    Lessons learned:
    * I hiked 6+ miles on Saturday morning, then swam 3000 yards in the gym pool that afternoon. I think I can skip that swim when I'm doing a monster swim on Sunday morning. (when I think about it, I ended up swimming over 10k between both swims)
    * I did bring a water bottle, but didn't drink from it until I finished. It would have been tough to get at it if I wanted it. I noticed some people leaving bottles and fins close to the edge. I need to do that next time. Just a quick break, swig a sip or so, then press on. Maybe every 5 loops.
    * If I feel that chilly, I really should wear a cap. I truly hate it, but most o/w swims require it (the 10k I'm doing does), so I should probably get used to it.
    * Start earlier. Even 15 min makes a big difference in the crowd size. By the time I was leaving, it was really crazy there. Almost ran into some kids on the last few loops.

    I really didn't feel hungry, but ate a protein bar in my car on the way home, then ate breakfast anyway. I mostly vegged on the recliner in front of the tv (with a blanket) for much of the day.
    Later I went to the gym and did an easy 30 min on the treadmill--just to warm up. Between that, and a very easy 400 in the pool, and some time in the hot tub, I finally felt ok.

    Barton Springs even looks great after a bad swim, and seeing this made me feel a bit better when I got out:



    Monday AM solo swim @ Sendero
    was still feeling a bit weak, so majorly modified...

    1400 w/u, with a ton of backstroke (made my arms feel better)

    100 kick, w/fins + board
    50, done easy back/easy free w/fins

    2 rounds (25 drill/25 free/25 back/25 free/25 drill) w/fins
    50, done easy back/easy free w/fins

    100 kick, w/fins + board
    50, done easy back/easy free w/fins

    100 easy

    10 x 100 @ 1:40, done 75 free, 25 stroke. back on 3, 6, 9, the others breast

    200 w/d

    TTL: 3400 yards

    Backstroke: 350 yards
    Breaststroke: 350 yards
    Freestyle: 2500 yards
    Kick: 200 yards

    It felt nice to just stretch out and not really worry about what I was doing too much.


    I think I'll do 1 more long swim next Sunday (without the swim on Saturday), and with making the modifications I hope to finally get to that 20 loops, around 5 miles. Then begin my taper for the 10k event on Aug 19. It may not be pretty, but I think I can finish.
