6:00 to 7:30 Swim Center LCM
Trained Mon but not Tue

dove in at 6:05 with no warm up the group started at 6:00

had a little controversy about whether I had a lane or not
The coach had us make lane reservations so I made one with her.
One woman made reservations, then canceled and gave hers to another swimmer
but she also told the coach she cancelled and the coach gave her slot to another swimmer. I walked in seconds before the group dove in and nearly didn't have a lane.
Which would have sucked because my wife came with me 40 miles from Martindale.

I just swam the whole thing, long steady and slightly uncomfortable.
Think my best time ever as a masters or recent years in a jammer was 63 min something on my way to the 10K. Today was a pretty good effort and I'm certain I can go faster, I never turned on my kick. for a while I was doing a single DK off each turn.
Maybe I'll take another whack.

    Nice swim! I really like those splits. Have you thought about competing in the 1500?
