Conditions were not great for fast swimming this evening. The temperature was hovering around 100 and the humidity was also near 100%. These conspired to raise the water temperature from its normal 81 (although recently it has been as low as 79) up to about 86. To make matters worse, someone in the subdivision surrounding the pool was redoing their roof, so the fumes from the tar/gasoline were almost overwhelming.

Swim Workouts

    Its amazing how hot water can be the workout killer. Just a few degrees can make all the difference. I have definately been where you were with the heat and I can empathize. I don't think I have had the roofing challenge you describe while swimming and it does not sound very unpleasant. When I was in college I worked a few summers doing construction and that roof tar smell is awful even with a mask.
