Overall, this workout was just draining on me. Not sure if it was from the lack of good nutritious food I haven't been eating over the weekend, or trying to do an IM workout during a fairly crowded lap swim session. Everyone must've known the pool would be closed for emergency facility maintenance the rest of the week.

========================================

P.M. Workout (5:45-7:00pm)

I decided to make the most of my day off from work, and get in another swim. Basically for the reason stated above, that the pool will be closed for the week. I do want to be in somewhat good shape leading into the Alumni Meet this weekend, and I guess I have a good drop taper out of the pool.

I actually felt really really good in the pool tonight. Maybe from being previously warmed up, and maybe my spaghetti and sausage dinner in my stomach to give me some good energy, and a Mountain Dew "Kickstart" as well. <-- I guess that's Dew's version of energy drink. It's actually pretty good, and does have that kick to it, but doesn't have the $#!++y taste that a Monster or Red Bull has (this is only my opinion).

Swam alongside the Teal Group, and the Splash Group from Velocity Swimming. Got to say hi to a bunch of parents from the team that I know too. I had the lap lane all to myself, with a public swim area on the other side of my lane as well.
