Sunday...yes, that's right...Sunday. There is now lap swim sessions available at the eastside YMCA pool after many many comment cards dropped "anonomously" in different colored pens, using right hand, left hand, kids penmanship, etc. HA just kidding. But I did put one comment card suggesting they think about opening a Sunday session. Well, it worked. Beginning today, and continuing through the spring, they will open a 2 hour block with 3 lap lanes and 3 lanes-worth of public swim (with the diving board in the deep tank as well). The turnout was pretty good. In the 1 1/2 hours I was there, I probably counted 9-10 lap swimmers, and about 30-35 people there for public swim. Not everyone was there at the same time, but it was a good showing for the first Sunday offered. Hopefully they will keep it going.

Jared came late today (car problems), and warmed up while I did:
100 Breast Kick w/ board just to relax my calf muscle that was feeling tense.
6 x 175 Free Pull @ 2:30 (1:58-2:02s)
I could've stepped up the interval to have less rest, but why? This was MY workout today, not the coaches, so I'll enjoy my rest...at least until tomorrow night.
150 EZ and out
Not too shabby for a "solo" workout at the Y. I was circle swimming with another guy (Jeff) that usually trys to do 1/2 of the distances of all my workouts/sets, so it kept other lap swimmers from trying to "share" the lane.
Oh, and with today's workout, I've now eaten up the almost 9 mile deficit I was facing last week in GTD. Isn't it great!!
My Go The Distance 2012 goal: 500.00 mi. Progress towards goal:
Congratulations! You are on pace for achieving your goal this year:
