I swam at the Y while my daughter was at her soccer practice. She's now getting old enough that her practice times are quite lengthy, so I have to find things to do in the meantime. Swimming fills that void nicely.
500 SDK on back w/ short fins
10 x 100 Free Pull
3 @ 1:30
4 @ 1:25
3 @ 1:20
I held these around 1:15ish. Just stretch out aerobic swimming.
10 x 50 Fly (25 EZ Drill, 25 Swim) @ 1:00
400 Free EZ until they had to clear the pool
2900 Yards in 45 minutes.
This was actually sort of exhausting. A combo of not swimming a lot lately, plus working my new job which is much more labor-intensive than my former job. The pay is supposed to be good though.
At least I got in some swimming so as to not let Tom get too far ahead of me in swimming mileage...not that I really care.
I only swam 11 times in the month of August for a grand total of 17.91 miles. I bet even PWB beat that! 5 of those 11 swim days were in competitive events, 2 OW swims, and one 3-day weekend swim meet.
I have a feeling I'll be able to swim in the mornings with my masters team starting in a couple weeks. I'll be working swing shift (2:30pm-11:00pm), and can hopefully get to bed so I can get up around 5:00am or so. We swim from 5-7am 3 days a week. I can probably handle that, plus it's easier to swim in a team setting, even if I'm doing my own thing in Lane 6. I have a feeling this year's going to be a lot more of just relaxation swimming vs. focus on competition, though I'll still get me game-face on a few times I'm sure.
