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.

    Welcome back Frank. I have missed your posts.

    I am glad you are still swimming and by the looks of things you have set some great goals. I look forward to seeing and hearing about your activities as work and other commitments ease up and change.

    Glad to see you posting again ... and I am very jealous of your proximity to the Gulf and your friends ...

    ... that sounds exquisite.

    Thank you, as always, for your consistent support and encouragement for myself and so many others on this forum. I hope to be more active soon!

    Yes, the Gulf water away from the beaches is wonderful for OW swimming. While I like boats, I would rather have friends with boats, and reciprocate in other ways, than have a boat myself. After being here in SWF for over two years, we are adapting more towards what this area has to offer.
