I actually swam 5 days in a row this week. There was a 1/2 and 3/4 work-out due to weather. I was quite tired by the end of this. I have forgotten that a 50 LCM fly is actually way longer than a 50 SCY fly. Near the end of practice, I noticed my friend Nicole with her fins on at the bottom of the deep end of the pool (I could have never made it down there but she plays underwater hockey and this was no problem). She was inspecting something on the bottom of the pool that was long and tubular. She decided it was a turd or a pickle, somehow managed to get it up to find it was indeed a pickle. The origin of the bottom dwelling pickle is unclear.
After practice I stayed at the pool to watch my oldest swim in Rice's Double Up Meet. He's 10 so swam the 100-200-400 free (and dropped 7-11-26 seconds respectively). By the end of this, I was exhausted. Hopefully, I'll get back to the pool today.
