wow what a set!

my usual lanemates haven't been there this week, not last either. and another regular who's faster must be traveling. so I ended up with our o/w guru, who is a bit faster than I am...and I was just beside our super-fast swimmers. the fast speed didn't necessarily wear off on me though.

my legs were still quite heavy after my cycling yesterday. the distance wasn't really that bad, 39 miles I can usually do quite easily. but the ~2300 feet of elevation, well that's quite a bit more than I usually get for a mid-week ride. heck, I pretty much passed out at 8:30 last night, and didn't wake up at all during the night (evidently despite the cats knocking over some things).

the swim started out ok... I should be able to hold 100s @ 1:20, and I did today. but I faded quickly and there was no way I could do 1:15 on set 2. it was a struggle to do it with paddles by set 3. at least pulling gave my legs a bit of a rest.

our weather has gone from nearly one extreme to the other. the high temp today was about 90F and it will be in the mid-90s tomorrow for at least the next few days. at least the low is still very nice, 50-55F.
