~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


It was an absolutely gorgeous day. Not a cloud in the sky and the water temperature was fine, not too warm. It was rather crowded. But I shared a lane with two swimmers from Lebo Masters. That is vastly easier than circling with the noodlier lap swimmers. I managed to make it through 8 x 50 fly. Held 29s on all of them. I was surprised I could do 8 of them, but I took a bit more rest on the last 3-4. I am anxious to get back to Pitt to see friends there after a month of closure. But it's just too nice to pass up two hours in the outdoor pool right now.

    Ah you're so lucky to have outdoor pools. I can't believe there's such a dearth of them here in Dallas.

    Was the fly set accomplished entirely with active (50ez) recovery? Or did you also rest some, after the ez? Thanks

    Yeah it seems odd that you wouldn't have more ... There were definitely a lot of very happy adult swimmers to have the extra 5 days outside with extended hours. Too bad it has to end!

    I always rest. Usually, when I do the 100 pace 50s, I do them odds = 100 pace @ 1:00 or so, evens = ez @ 2:00 or so. Today, I was resting more than that on the last 3-4. 100 pace 50s are hard, especially fly.
