First legit snow storm of the year started Wednesday night and continued through the day today. Was able to snap this picture of the house before firing up the snowblower:
Spent about an hour clearing out the driveway, then another little bit opening up after the town plowed me me. Got in the following swim before dinner:
200 FR/200 BK/200 IM drill
Put on snorkel and ...
- 50 flutter kick on 1:00 with board
- 100 pull on 1:30 with agility paddles and pull buoy
- 150 swim on 2:15 with agility paddles
- 200 back with agility paddles (didn't use snorkel here, or course)
Two rounds of:
6 x 50
- 1: ez
- 2-5: quarter's strong
- 6: AFAP
- go on next top
(first round FR with snorkel on :45, second round back on :50)
1 x Noah's Ark pull
1 x 100 float to finish
(Solo/Rec/2800 yds/45 min)
Nice stretch-out swim in with toys. Felt good to add in some longer yardage swims but also keep some intensity in there. I'm starting to look forward to ramping back into full swing with the swim training with the start of the new year. It has been nice not having crowded lanes, but I know that will change for a while in January.
After getting home, I shoveled some more for another 30 minutes. I might be a tad crazy, but I enjoy the winter weather and the outdoor activities that it brings. Even shoveling Last year we had some very small storms and it was quite warm, causing our winter season to be almost nonexistent. Looking forward to more time outside, off to find my snowshoes and wax up the old Burton.
