Riverbank morning

Rate this Entry
I had a good swim this morning at Riverbank State Park, sharing a lane and most of a workout with Rondi and Hannah. Here’s what I did:

1000 lcm warmup (400s, 200 RIMk, 200p, 200 IM d/s by 25)

1 x 100 FR @ 1:40
1 x 50 fr @ 1:00
2 x 100 FR @ 1:40
1 x 50 fr @ 1:00
3 x 100 FR @ 1:40
1 x 50 fr @ 1:00
4 x 100 FR @ 1:40
1 x 50 fr @ 1:00
5 x 100 FR @ 1:40
1 x 50 fr @ 1:00
[My goal was to keep all the 100s under 1:30—I made 14 of 15. Pleased, as I was having trouble just making the interval on these a month ago.]

50 easy swim

12 x 100 fr/bk halfsies, descend each set of 3, @ 1:50 (first 7) and 1:45 (last 5)

400 IM kick/swim by 50
300 fr pull
200 IM kick
100 warmdown + play

It was such a pretty morning that I walked home from Riverbank—about 4 miles—on the footpath by the Hudson, enjoying the brilliant foliage and the white-capped river.

Things I’m grateful for today: good lanemates who are also good friends, toe socks, and race directors who hold swims in interesting conditions. In that last category is Andy Davis, who put on the first-ever 2.6-mile Cold Water Challenge in Fairfield, CT this past Saturday. It was a really beautiful swim and I enjoyed it greatly. Water in the sound was flat and in the mid- to high-50s. Hope it becomes an annual tradition!

    Thanks Sojerz! And I love 50+ and brrrrr.

    Michael, there's talk of holding the race again next year, since it was such a hit this time around. And thanks!
