    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.
