Great swim tonight after feeling crummy all day. Of course, today is the first of twelve days of vacation with rain and cool temps so I lacked motivation.

I tried to vary the workout a bit. I was able to again hit all the turns with the snorkel, although they are not as natural with the dorkel. Maintained a stroke count of 12-3 per length and good form throughout. Went after a faster rotation on the 75s and worked that last round.

Tomorrow is the open house for our local Masters club, which I am going to start coaching. We'll start in October for a twelve week training cycle looking to improve techinique and also speed (as the two concepts are connected).

    Great first official team workout today. Especially that cranberry walnut bread and cider! You seem like a natural at coaching. I don't think I've ever had a coach actually explain what we were doing (or maybe I wasn't paying much attention back then in the '80s), but I enjoyed it. But oh - that kicking - my thighs will be complaining tomorrow.
