Upon arrival I found out that FGCU LCM pool will remain as 2xSCY courses at least through college swim team season. It appears to be a very recent decision, schedules had already been printed with LCM pool lap swimming times for the entire Spring Semester. While I was looking forward to swimming LCM, I can certainly understand why the coaching staff chooses to practice SCY during the the SCY college season.
Today I was in the diving well as the life guards were short staffed and wanted everyone in one pool. At least the water was not too hot.
Set 1 - Did two T30 swims one straight FR and another one as FR with paddles. 2500 for 30 minutes is where I need to be and just barely made it. There is much I have to work on as I was coming up short and breathing early off the flip turns. But my stroke felt strong with a consistent EVF front end.
Set 2 - This is the first time doing 50 FR kick at/under :45 in 20 years, and also did some more 50s FR under 30.
