I'm off today for the holiday, and for the first time in a long time I didn't even set an alarm. I ended up waking up around 6:30am. I looked at the temperature, was somewhere around 36-37F. ended up walking the dogs and did a short hike in the nearby county park.

headed over to Sendero for the mid-day swim, think I arrived around 11:20 (it is open 11am to 1pm). there was a fast guy in the next lane, doing a long continuous swim. I think I know him, a guy who used to swim with the masters group when it existed at Sendero, but he now swims with the group at the Y.
was really nice being next to him, as I was able to pace off of him through my entire warm-up, a little of my kick/odd set, and it was really nice for those 300s. I caught him when I started the first 300, then he kept going, I'd catch him around the 25 and stick with him until my last 25, push ahead, and we kept that the whole time.

When I left I caught a good nugget of info from one of the lifeguards...the temperature threshold for them to open is now 32F (was 40F). she said it is a hard number; a few weeks ago they opened, then had to close 15 min later. it gets below 40 often enough to be annoying, but doesn't get below 32 nearly as much. very handy. I actually like swimming outside (heated water), when it is cold like that.


I did swim Saturday, and did a 500 for time. not what I was expecting, a 6:33. Based on doing 1000 in 12:33 last Wed, I was expecting somewhere around 6:20. I'll do it again, either Wednesday or Friday. was an afternoon swim, when I usually swim best in the morning. I think I've done it in about 6:15, back when I was in better shape and swimming with Paul's group at Kino. doesn't look like I've ever swum this in a meet (nor the 1000), so if I swim them, they'll both be best times.
