Comments:
  • Thinking of my family in Princeton, NJ and the entire eastern seaboard as Hurricane Sandy passes today, tomorrow, and Wednesday.
  • A Fall/Winter day in SWF with temperatures in the low 60s up to 65 by the time of my swim.
  • The 5K was a good swim with two days off this weekend, I enjoyed the challenge to work on the variable pace, effort and stroke technique.
  • The approximate 100 yard pace when using a steady kick and firm pull was 1:07-8 glancing at the clock before the flip turn.
