My legs already felt tired in the warm up, but then Set 1 did me in for almost the remainder of the workout. Set 2 was a struggle as I was getting lost after the dive trying to find my stroke and feel for the water. Set 3 was really more of a recovery set. I changed Set 4 to 25s so I could practice dives, as I think I just need to do them frequently enough to learn how swim as efficiently from the dive as from the wall push off.

Every month I reset the trip odometer in my 2010 Honda CR-V to record the monthly miles, and also reset the average MPG. Last month was one of my better months with 28.5 mpg. I am going see if I can beat that in October.

    I'm glad to hear my family isn't the only one who keeps track of this sort of thing. I have a little notebook that I use at every trip to the gas station to record overall mileage, trip odometer since the last fill-up, and amount of gas put into the car. I also record the maintenance. I haven't crunched the numbers on it but it's sort of neat little memory book to have - I can pick out all the road trips, etc. When my last car died in a sudden manner, I forgot to get the notebook before it got towed away forever. I really regret that - it had been all over the country and Canada.
