I was planning to swim this morning. got up, but we had crazy storms. I thought maybe it would pass by in time for workout, but it didn't. so I went back to bed.

since I have today off for the New Year's Holiday, I was able to get to the pool for their mid-day lap swim.
storms were all gone, temp was 65-70, and it was sunny.

I knew I wanted to do a longer workout, but wasn't quite sure what. during the warm-up I decided I'd do 10 x 100s. then during that, I decided to add 2 more, as then I could do 150 and 200 to add up the same.

was surprised how smooth everything felt. I held 1:20 or faster on the 100s, and wasn't pushing too much. initially I was going to do the 150s @ 2:10, but had plenty of time so cut the interval (still held around 1:55). I could have done the 200s @ 2:40, but it would have been a bit tight, so I kept the 2:45, held around 2:35 to 2:38.

I was hoping to get in a 100 x 100-type set to start the new year. there was one nearby yesterday, but unfortunately the time didn't work. then there's another on 1/15, but I'll be out of town. oh well...I could always do it on my own I guess.
