10 x 50 various w/snorkel

Both the gym and pool were crowded today. This was unbelievable. I had to kick a woman off the leg press machine because she was sitting on it reading a book. I guess she does that between sets? After 5 minutes, I wasn't waiting any longer.
The pool was a disaster -- only 5 lanes, kiddy campers everywhere, slow mo elementary backstroke noodlers, and no backstroke flags. I threw out my planned workout and just did whatever I could manage. Parachutes seem like good bang for your buck in those circumstances. Mason is closed in August and SpringHill Rec is closed for 3 weeks after I get back from the beach (I'm gone Aug 4-18.). I hope Oak Marr is open, or it may be tough to swim.
Drove up to Baltimore later, ready to watch Lil Fort run the 3000 at Nationals tomorrow.
