    Thanks, the ocean breeze is nonstop on the island which keeps the summer heat comfortable but it takes everything with it, like cameras

    How often do you do vertical kick drills?
    I did 0:15 of VK, rested 0:45, and repeated 5 times.

    Have been doing them almost every w/o. I decided to give vertical kicking a try because the super fast masters sprinters do them like waterrat, and sunruh. And the fact Rich and Chris recently mentioned them in a thread just encouraged me to add them to almost every w/o. Moreover, just in the several recent months I started doing the drill, I have noticed my kick and swimming has improved in this time. Have not tested this training at a meet yet.

    Turn this stupid pool design into a positive and practice your open water sighting skills to look for the wall each lap!

    Given everything else going on, perhaps you can take a day off?

    If I'm not in bed/asleep by ~10pm, then I usually won't swim the next morning. Usually I'm in bed around 8:30-9pm.

    What is with the formatting on the blogs? It's impossible to actually read the workouts ... Mine is doing the same thing.

    Wow, it's a great thing you were wearing shoes. That could've been even uglier.
