  6. Checking and saying hello

    by , April 4th, 2020 at 10:10 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Lakes are getting warmer, so maybe by the end of the month I might be able to get in somewhere!

    On a funny note, I started jumping rope again for the first time in 25 years. It's tough! haha

    Here is a good read on social distancing from a marathon swimmer that is quick.
    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/ge...mic-2020-04-02

    Stay healthy. Wash your hands. The water will accept us back without judgment once the doors are opened again.

    PM SCY w/ Trip @ LRRC "The End"

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    this is the end, my only friend, the end
    of our elaborate plans, the end
    of everything that stands, the end
    no safety or surprise, the end
    I'll never look into your eyes again


    ~ Jim Morrison

    400 swim every 4th 25 scull w/ SNKL
    3x100 @ 1:15 pull w/ SP + SNKL

    500 FR - 5:02.54 (57.14/1:00.89/1:01.22/1:01.66/1:01.63) - Because why not? LRRC is closing down until further notice. Figured I would throw on my suit and see what popped out. Not a bad swim. No easy speed, but under heavy training that is to be expected! Thanks for timing me, Trip!

    6x100 @ 1:30 FR kick H.A.S. w/ fins + SNKL

    Have some possible options for a pool next week, but my wife may bar me from swimming. I think she was only going to let me keep going as long as the LRRC stayed open!
