    Heavy storms were moving through the area all day. I swam with light grey clouds but constant thunder rumbling in the distance for the duration of practice. When I got out I saw that where it was light grey clouds above me, all around was dark purple/slate grey clouds. Even caught a flash of lightning as I headed to the locker room. During CORE7 the heavens opened and it stormed like crazy. I got lucky to get in a 55 minute workout in the only period where there weren't severe storms!

    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.

    Held :47/:46 on the 75s all swim, turns and breakouts starting to feel better after I let them get a little lazy swimming LCM. Lots of breath control and I am terrible at breath control but that just means I need to do it more.

  20. Workout 07/31/18: morning

    by , July 31st, 2018 at 12:12 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Up early and drove across the state line to the Hoosick Falls, NY, outdoor pool for Adult Swim this morning. It's real cheap $1.50 for an hour. I don't get to come here often and sometimes there are lots of activities happening instead of swimming period but today the pool was open and I had a good workout.

    500 swim 400 pull 300 kick
    5 x 100 on :20 sr
    4 x 75 ksp on 1:15
    100 loosen and out
    [Solo/Hoosick Falls/2100 yds/35 min]

    Heading to see the Smashing Pumpkins in concert tonight out in Boston. Really excited to share this concert with my wife, our son, and our nephew.
