I didn't have time to get to Pitt today. I had a dermatologist appt, just for a baseline skin cancer screening. I didn't think I had any terribly suspicious spots. But with fair skin/fair hair/blue eye and lots of time in the sun/lifeguarding slathered with baby oil in my youth, I thought it was prudent to go. And now I know I'm all clear. After the appt, I just went to LA Fitness. Next time I do that 30 x 50 set, I think I need to cut back the interval. Looking forward to Pitt tomorrow!

    FYI...I called the Bridgeville LA Fitness and asked the length of the pool. It is 25 METERS. And has a salt filter, which is nice for the skin :-). For an extra 5 minutes or so, it may be worth the drive to NOT go to hole formally known as Ballys.

    I couldn't stand not knowing, after your revelation the other day. LOL

    That's so funny! I'd love to do 25 m from time to time. I think I would have to transfer my membership though? You can't just go to any location can you?

    Glad you're melanoma-free. I just ran into an old masters swimming friend of mine at yoga tonight and he's given up swimming thanks to skin cancer and the fact that virtually all pools here are outdoors. I was happy to pass my skin check earlier this year, as well.

    SCM is totally excellent for training! My dream house would have an indoor SCM pool.

    Yes, indoor SCM, 7 feet deep with a block. :-)

    Yeah, I have a friend who's had several cancerous moles removed. He is not supposed to be in the sun ever. His doctor literally told him to go on vacation in Alaska or Vancouver. I'm glad you are cancer free! Is suspect more people living in AZ should be checked.

    Unless you have some funky discount deal, you can go to any location as far as I know. I've been to the one in Robinson without issue.

    Good to know. I didn't think all access was automatic. I'll have to check with mine. I only recall that I signed up for the $29.99 per month deal. That's pretty cheap, so it may not include all access ...
