I made some more grape jelly this morning, then picked up some more supplies for the garden with my wife before heading out for a motorcycle ride with my new helmet. Was able to squeak in 65 chilly miles - just happy to be out on the bike for the first time in almost a month.

After helping some in the garden and getting dinner started, I was running late to the pool tonight and just was not all that motivated. I settled on a 400 theme for the evening, with some lower yardage sets with more rest than I am used to.

I noticed that on the main 100's set if I breathe every two strokes I was gassed by the end of the 100, but felt a little better if I could breathe every 3/4 strokes. For the pulls I held 1:08-1:10, and the swims I held 1:04-1:07 (really feeling slow on the last one). Focused on my catch and pull with the paddles.

I now will work through the weekend, and found out that the pool is closed Monday for Columbus day. Planning to juice some grapes tonight and use it to make more jelly this weekend. I also ordered that wine-making kit, which should be in next week (a special trial for my wife). Also, the AHL team in Albany has its first game Saturday night, so my son and I are going to head over after I get out of work. Be safe, all.
