200 w/d

TTL: 3500 yards

evidently there was some issue with the covers. not exactly sure what it was, but we were compressed into 8 lanes, with 4-5 swimmers per lane.

while I was doing the 6 x 50 swim w/fins, my left fin had an odd feeling. turns out it suddenly decided to tear. not sure why, but they aren't new. I couldn't find when I ordered them, but I'm guessing ~2 years. so I ordered a new pair, they should arrive by Wednesday (maybe tomorrow, who knows).
funny thing is, I've had my TYR Catalyst paddles for ~15 years, and they still are as good as when I first got them. well I do change the tubing periodically.

I thought Paul said for my lane do to the 300s @ 4:30. not a huge deal... I was going 2nd in the lane, and the first guy wanted me to go ahead. I was waiting that extra :15, but he got impatient and left. it was fine, I'm a touch faster with Agility paddles, but significantly faster with the Catalyst paddles. I just went 10 sec behind and was mostly ok.
