It ended up being a crowded day at the Y pool today. They had 1 lane for water walkers, 2 lanes for lap swim, and the other 3 area for public swim. By 2:00 there were so many public swim folks that they asked us to combine down to 1 lane for lap swimmers. There were only 3, so we did have a lot of real estate taken up in the scheme of things. I was basically done at that point anyway, so no big deal.

The 3rd set of the pyramid was a bit tough in my current state of conditioning, but it was good for me. I remember back to college days doing the pyramids to 200 and back down with in interval of Base :20 + :15 per. That's 1:05 for the 100, and 2:05 for the 200 interval!! Really got tough adding every step along the way. YIKES now! Back then, it was good for me!

    I don't get the "public swim" people. They just hang out and float around. Looks very unproductive if you ask me. And a waste of time.

    The "public swim" people are doing what they enjoy in the pool, just as you and I enjoy swimming laps in the lap lane. They are doing nothing wrong.

    I don't mind the public swimmers honestly. It gets a bit wavy, but truly they're not interfering with what I'm doing. An occasional ball will fly into my lane, and that only sucks when I don't see it coming and my stroke unknowingly hits it.
    I don't mind the swimmers that are lap swimming either, no matter what speed or form of movement they do. My only gripe is when I'm already splitting a lane with someone of a same or different speed, and then a 3rd person wants to join the lane who is a completely different speed altogether. At least group yourselves with people of "similar" abilities.

    Plus, these noodlers, open swimmers, water walkers, all help keep the cost down. Maybe the membership is higher in your neck of the woods, but without them, they cost would be even higher.
