    It's almost alien to see you only swimming 3k. A little rest will do good.

    Yes, it felt a bit strange too. I was rushing to get in some swimming and then pick up my son from school. I have more work this year than the last two years, so I will need to plan ahead with shorter, focused workouts ready to go on days like this.

    You are right about the rest. I learned what it is like NOT to have enough rest during my training last spring, so evolving through this summer now rest is an essential part of my training, along with a variation of HIT type workouts with some longer swims at moderate pace focused on DPS, drills, and technique.

    You can still accomplish a lot in 3K and you can still see some great benefits. The variety will do both your body and mind some good, as well.
