They turned the heater off and the water was better today - not quite where it usually is, but a lot better. That made swimming hard a lot easier!
On a side note, today would have been my parent's 58th wedding anniversary. Mom was visiting her sister in Terrell and my uncle was there, too. So, Mom was not alone - a hard day, but she is doing ok.
Started with an extended warmup. Then joined Peter, Dave, and Dave with there sets. That meant it turned into a sprint workout. I seem to be getting faster and am pleased with my timed swims.
