Wow, finally back in the water!! Maybe I'll get to swim tomorrow night as well. I am on my "weekend", having Tuesdays and Wednesdays off from work. I still have to wait till my wife comes home from her work before I can leave the kiddos to get in the water.

I'm so wasted tired on a daily basis now though. Not just from work, but first thing in the morning (7:30am) I'm up to get my son's meds before school, then by 8:00, my dad and his friend are here, and we have been working on the 2 bathrooms remodel/full renovations. This includes the re-routing of all sewer lines in the house, all plumbing. On top of this, fixing/replaceing the floor joists in the basement that were cut by some previous homeowner. GRRRRRR... Then all the cosmetic putting the walls back together. It's going to be a big task, especially keeping one bathroom in "working condition" through the whole thing. It's no small task, but we're "all in" now. Thankfully I have my dad (engineer, construction, electrical, plumbing, concrete, basically anything non-desk job related). Between the two of us, we can get a lot done for minimal cost.

Well...I guess this is a swim blog so:

500 Free
:20 rest
400 Free
:20 rest
300 Free/Back by 25s
:20 rest
200 Free
:20 rest
100 Free (this was a 1:15) basically swam the same pace from the beginning, but shows how slow I was. It was somewhat painful as well, though I tried to keep it relaxed and stretched out.

10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00 (or straight 500 Kick since I was basically going :58/:59s)

16 x 50 Free Pull w/ paddles @ :45
8 x 50 Free w/ paddles and short fins @ :40 (felt nice to have some speed) went :31s
4 x 50 w/ short fins (25 Fly Fast, 25 EZ Free) @ 1:00

100 EZ and gone.

3500 Yards

Hopefully I'll get to get in tomorrow. This was more of a stretch out, get a feel for the water swim anyway. Only my Fly felt good today.
200 Fly is still in my sights for my next meet in a few least it's right here at home.
