My first swim in a week, and only my 2nd swim since my SCM meet on March 7-8th! For now, I'm just trying to "get my money's worth" out of my monthly YMCA membership.

I did manage to swim 6 of the first 8 days of the month, and then one 4 days later, and then again tonight. So 8 swims out of 19 days isn't all bad, right? That's still not even an average of every other day...and yet I still call myself a distance swimmer. I can still hold pace well, and have a little speed to go with it, just don't have a 100% tank to draw from when I need it. Oh well, I'll get back to swimming like I used to one of these years...

Tonight, splitting a lap lane alongside the swimming lesson groups on the other half of the pool:

500 Free continuous!! warmup
(500/500)

7 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00 (ranged :45-:48s)
7 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ :55 (ranged :47-:50s)
(700/1200)

300 Free
(300/1500)

10 x 50 SDK w/ short fins on back @ :50 (ranged :33-:38s)
(500/2000)

200 Free w/ last 25 as Fast Fly

----------------------------------
2200 Yards in 40 minutes


Good news, my shoulder felt fine the whole time. No popping, grinding, or other funky things going on. That's a good sign, but I'm still going to stay away from the paddles for a while, and take it sorta easy when I do get back in the water again...which may be a week or so.

I do have my LMSC Champs coming up on April 5-6 in Moscow, Idaho, of which I signed up for the 200, 500, 1000, 1650 Free, 200 Fly, and 200 IM.

    My swimming has been pitiful lately. I intended to swim after work but it ended up being an absolutely gorgeous day and I opted to go to the nature trails for a long walk with a friend and then I mowed the front yard and dug out weeds. The latter part needed to get done so I suppose it was justifiable.
