The FGCU Aquatic Center LCM pool is being repaired and renovated with re-opening target of December 14.
Obviously I have not been posting workouts for quite awhile, which in part is due to teaching a community evening ESL English class, along with less time to train this fourth quarter due to increased volume of work. I still get in the water most weekdays just that I have less time, so generally less volume but more intensity. Today was the longest pool workout in several weeks.
My short term focus is 200 IM, 100 & 50 in Fly, Bk, and FR. Planning to swim SCM at Coral Springs mid December, and then several SCY meets January - February. Depending on work schedule and my progress in SCY competition, I may consider the YMCA Nationals SCY in Sarasota on April 10-13. I am still doing 1 or 2 longer swims of 45-60 minutes each week to maintain OW base, and I expect to the swim the annual 5k OW at Miramar Lakes two after the YMCA Nationals.
Now I have some friends with boats so that on Saturday or Sunday mornings if weather/tides are favorable, we motor out in the Gulf where the water is clear to do some 2-4 mile OW swims.
