Due to early morning heavy rain, thunder and lightning I arrived later than usual to the FGCU Aquatic Center. I was unmotivated swimming solo in the ongoing rain as the only swimmer in the pool.

While not sore, but yet feeling not so energetic in the water I labored my way through Set 1 in the broken 1000 then found more feel for the water during the pull set. Decided to do the 200s with the fins and at least enjoy going faster.

The lifeguards wearing parkas, hoodies, jackets, etc., rotated shifts watching me from the guard chair under the umbrella as the rain just kept coming down. Then as I was finished, and pulled myself out holding the starting block onto the pool deck, and the guard was getting off the chair, several more swimmers appeared on deck to get in!
