There is still no swim team practice throughout the weekend as the outlook for the smoke in town was questionable at the least. Well, overnight the smoke began to thin a bit, and throughout the morning it got better and better. It's still not anywhere near normal, but I decided to go check out the conditions at the pool, and they were excellent, in fact, almost normal conditions inside there.

YMCA Lap Swim time:

I joined up with another masters swimmer (Tom) who was there, and we did a little something to get the blood flowing.

Warmup:

500 Free (I bet I was under 6:00 for this)
(Tom did a 400 Pull while I warmed up, he was already warmed up)

The remainder of workout we did together:
12 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00 cruised about :50s w/ final one fast did :39

Main Set:
I made up the base of the set
Tom selected the intervals and did all Free
so I modified with the strokes mixed in to keep intervals challenging

4 x 100 @ 1:30 (25 Fly/25 Free/25 Back/25 Free) did minimum 3 SDKs on each
6 x 75 @ 1:10 (50 Free/25 Breast)
8 x 50 @ :50
  • Fly/Back
  • Back/Breast
  • Breast/Free
  • Free
  • Free
  • Free/Breast
  • Breast/Back
  • Back/Fly
10 x 25 Free @ :20

200 EZ and out

------------------

2800 Yards - good maintinence workout


=================================

The radio is reporting that we should be getting 10-15 mph winds later today and tomorrow, which should do a pretty good job of getting rid of this smoke.

I can only cross my fingers and pray that the winds are from the east to push this stuff over to KNelson and That Guy for a while.
