I made it to Canyonview twice during my trip. When I lived in San Diego, I was a bit of a swimming nomad and I had been there quite a few times before. The coach told me that nothing about the structure of the work-outs had changed in the intervening 2 decades and this was pretty much true. At that time, they didn't have structured weekend work-outs so I was happy to see this addition. I felt decent. I can keep a pace again--although a slow one. I went to cove as well but didn't swim-- I just watched the sea lions and seals (who are also new since I lived there). I'm not sure when I'll swim this week since I have a lot of work related things that I need to get caught up on plus I'm pretty tired because I stuffed about 5 days worth of activities into three days on my trip.

    I think I've only made it to Canyonview twice, but it's a sweet facility in an even sweeter location. I imagine the cove's getting a bit cold these days to swim in, unless you are a sea lion, seal or true Californian open water addict.
