LCM in MN...

So I had a double treat today... visited the West St. Paul YMCA. Not only do they have an outdoor pool, but it's long course. So few opportunities for outdoor long course down in my neck of the woods!
I got there about 5:15, this is what it looked like as I was drying off about 7:30 AM:
Air temp was in the upper 60s, so the water temp had to be upper 70s. Felt great, all you had to do was stand up to cool off.
I did 3000 M/65-70 mins:
400 EZ (3 x 100 fr, 100 bk)
4 x 100 fr on 2:00 (1:45ish)
8 x 50 fr on :5-:10 rests
5 x 200 IM on 5:00 (4:10-4:20)
400 fr on 8:00 (7:40)
4 x 100 fr on 2:15
My body is just not ready for LCM yet... the fly on the 200 IMs was awful toward the end. And I really should have done a short recovery swim yesterday... I felt very stiff and sore from Wednesday's workout and yesterdays lawn work plus travel. It was difficult finding a rhythm today.
It was really nice to be swimming outside for the first time since getting back from TX... I feel like everyday should be an outdoor day in the summer!
