Finally got in a real workout, rather that just a "warmup swim" like I've usually been doing. I really enjoyed the main set today, and it was nice to have the Fly in the middle to break up the long freestyle swims. <--That's an odd statement, most people would be the other way around I think.

No swimming for me the rest of the week...more than likely. They have a kids USAS meet at the pool this weekend, so no lap swimming on Saturday/Sunday when I normally could make it. Plus, I'm in the middle of a upstairs bathroom remodel with my father, and in the process we'll be renovating our downstairs bathroom as well. We have to do new sewer piping and freshwater lines for the upstairs, getting things more directly in line with the downstairs bathroom waste water lines, plus fixing up some other issues that the previous homeowners left for us. Surprise!! Yeah, thanks for that!

    Very good workout ... definitely not just getting wet. I think I might try the Chaos set sometime. Gotta bookmark this.

    The first part was just getting wet, but I had planned to do some kind of lengthy yardage today, just didn't know what exactly. Like most of my workouts the initial 500 of the Chaos Set began as a 100 Free that I decided to flip and keep going...then though about stuff and remembered Tom's blog. Workouts on the fly...easier when you're on a solo project of course!

    I wonder if I can do that before the year is up? I may not even get in the water 7 more times this year, but have only 9 miles to go to 500 miles. Bring on the suit!
