Dreaming of bridges ....

In January my apartment building reconfigured some office space into a small fitness room, and I was very excited to find out that they included a Concept2 erg among the machines. I hadnít rowed since the summer, but I hope I will get back into the habit now that I have such easy access to a machine. For my first short rowing workout I did the following:
5 minutes warmup + drill
4 x (500 meter row for time, 1minute recovery), desc. [2:18, 2:13, 2:11, 2:08]
3 minutes warmdown
That was itóstill I was a little sore after!
This morning I had an enjoyable swim at RB with Rondi. Iíve been having some breathing issues, so I just did a long easy swim, as follows:
1000 lcm warmup (400s, 200k, 200p, 200d/s)
800 swim, every 5th length stroke IM order
600 swim, every 4th length stroke IM order
500 swim, every 3rd length stroke IM order
300 swim, every 2nd length stroke IM order
200 warmdown + play
Next week I will be traveling to Sonoma for a week-long trip with my husbandóweíre celebrating our 20th anniversary. Afterwards I will stay over in San Francisco for a few days, and I was really excited over the weekend to find out that Iíll get a chance to swim from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate while Iím there! Itís about 6 miles total, but there will be a lot of current assist. It should be a fun and beautiful. Between this swim, 2 Bridges, and the stage of 8 Bridges that I'm signed up for, 3 of my first 4 swims of the season will be bridge-to-bridge affairs!
