I enjoyed a nice swim at RB this morning with Rondi. Here’s what I did:
900 lcm warmup (400s, 200k, 100p, 200RIM)
3 x 1000:
- Magic 1000, combining FR/BK in a 1/1/2/1/3/1/4/1/5/1 (lengths) pattern
- 5 x 200, pulling odds, swimming evens
- 400/300/200/100, with middle 100 of each swim IM
It was nice to swim LC again--I realize every time I travel how lucky we are to have the opportunity to swim LC every day, year round. (I also realize how normal it seems to large swaths of the country to swim outdoors year round, and I envy that!) This morning at Riverbank there was the usual mix of friendly (most) and annoying (a few) lap swimmers—it definitely had a sort of welcome-back-to-real-life vibe.
I did spot a very cool suit in the next lane—a black-and-white patterned women’s suit that appeared at first glance to be festooned with jellyfish outlines. Rondi interpreted them as moose, and upon looking closer I guessed camels. Turned out they were at-ats, from Star Wars! You can see it here. Black Milk makes the coolest swimwear--it just might be time for a little spring wardrobe refreshing...
