Today I did my swim work out at
Disney's Typhoon Lagoon (TL)

TL is an awesome water park, they have the best wave pool I have ever been in
Today I body surfed. from 10:30 to 12:30
I also wore a cap and a T shirt to not get as sunburned

I got in the TL wave pool, swam out to the rope which is as far as they let you go, then I'd wait for a wave to come. They launch one every 90 seconds. When a wave launches I did a short sprint towards the shore, which would up being 2 or 3 strokes and a few dolphin kicks, I'd catch the wave and ride it to the red line which is about 150 feet feet from where I started. I hung out with the regulars body surfer joe told me I was supposed to stop at the red line, he said it was some sort of rule.
I'd drop out of the wave by balling up then swim easy back out to the rope and catch the next one. It was fun dodging people

TL does tidal waves from 10:00 to 11:30
then rolling waves from 11:30 to noon
then they alternated 30 min of tidal waves with 30 min of rolling waves

Rolling waves are unsurfable so I'd get out, the local body surfers invited me to hang out with them, really nice folks

I plan to drop by the Y do part of the 3:30 practice

Later I have the meet, I'm swimming the 1650

Been enjoying following NCAAs, UT had a good Prelim Session. Looking forward to finals tonight
