Made it the YMCA before it closes for the rest of the week. Not a bad pool. Very shallow, especially at one end, but a cool temperature. I went in the early to mid afternoon to avoid it being closed due to late afternoon thunderstorms. The storms never came, so I was happily able to sit on the beach for a couple hours after my workout.
Usual 700 variety swim, kick, drill
16 x 200 w/fins, done with descending intervals as:
4 x 200 free @ 3:00
4 x 200 backstroke kick @ 2:50
4 x 200 free @ 2:40
4 x 200 backstroke kick @ 2:30 (had 7-8 seconds rest on these)
No extra rest between. It wasn't as terrible and dull as I feared. It's nice to combine the mid-D with some early season kicking. I'm big fan of kicking a lot in early season. Not 2 days like Wolfy has managed, , but maybe a couple months of it.
5 x 50 breast pull @ 1:00
5 x 50 dolphin kick on back @ :50
Did my RC exercises even! I may swim in the ocean tomorrow if it's not as rough rather than driving to the YWCA (which apparently is open next week -- it will be mobbed with tris I'm sure). They rescued 25-30 people at Wrightsville Beach yesterday because of the rough currents.
