~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The water was pretty chilly. It said the temp was 76, but it felt more like 78-79. I had quite a few calf cramps. I wonder if this is due to the cold water? In VA, I was used to water that was 83-84. Pitt is at 79 as well.

Taking today off as we have family in town. Swimming with Jimby tomorrow.

    I really enjoyed the link you provided about recovery(seriously there was some good info). I guess based on the temperature of your pool you should recover from those killer sprint workouts

    Did you swim at the Y? I can't imagine the water being that cold. The patrons would go crazy! I should make a trip to my childhood stomping grounds so I can swim a few practices with you and Jim.

    I thought it was a good article too. It re-confirmed my thoughts that I need to do more foam rolling. Teen Fort has done some ice baths. They are far far worse than the temperature of that pool!

    I did swim at the Y. The heater was broken and all the classes were cancelled. I'd love to swim with you!
