there were off/on storms during the day. I didn't see any lightninig, but when I got to the pool the guard said there had been a strike 12 min prior so I couldn't swim for 18 min. I considered just going to the gym pool...but waited in my car then went back. I think they were surprised.
had the pool to myself for the whole warmup. then a family came and were playing in the open area. toward the end a guy came and got in the next lane swimming laps.

I used to do ladder sets all the time, but can't remember the last time I had done one. I'm always surprised how much rest I get on the longer swims. actually I still got a decent amount on the way back down. that 50 free was :36, and the 50 breast 41.

    Nice racing!

    Very interesting 100 free. Must have really reserved the first 50 to manage the 2nd one faster, in low 32

    Thanks steve. Happy to hijack Tim's blog
    I should have taken the first 50 out stronger but was tired and help back too much. Really happy with the swim and entire meet.
