    Kick: 300 yards
    Free: 4050 yards

    air temp was around 60. water felt a little cooler than yesterday (I felt warm then), but it could have been the air helping.

    the pool was crowded when I got there and I went to the far side, which gave me great views of the sunrise later in the set. plus I don't often go to that side, so a different perspective on things. just felt really good in the water.

    then before I showered, I weighed myself (have a fancy Tanita scale):
    weight: 178.8
    body fat: 12.7%
    BMI: 25.0
    that's the lowest for everything since I was cycling centuries, around 5-6 years ago. when I travel I eat horribly, so I'm sure the weight will creep back up to my normal by the end of the week (usually around 182).

  2. Monday 5/13/19

    AM “let’s call it 35 meters” Solo @ Disney Port Orleans Resort, Orlando “Vacation Day #3”

    Finally got to the pool this morning. Going to call the length I swam about 35 meters given stroke count. Got 20 lengths easy FR and then 4x 3x35 k/dr/sw RIMO.

    Side note: Disney World is NOT the happiest place on earth. My two children spent the majority of the time over the last two days at the park crying and complaining about (in no particular order): the heat, having to walk, getting wet (when it rained), not enough characters to meet, too many characters to meet (sensory overload), etc. Anyways, waiting on bus to head to cruise ship. Still hoping to get a swim in tomorrow in Nassau.

    So glad to be getting away from Disney World.

    Total: 1300 (when you count paddling around to help my kids in the pool as well)
