I couldn't even remember the last time I swam an evening workout with the team...been a few months, I think maybe November?
it wasn't the toughest workout I've done, but given that I biked this morning, my legs were feeling like mush, this fit the bill.

Evening workout groups are always hit/miss. sometimes we've had 15+ swimmers, others just 3-4. tonight was somewhere in the middle, I think we had about 10. everyone seemed roughly the same speed, and everyone did that set above.

after cycling, the cool water felt wonderful on my legs. I should have jumped in my backyard pool, but it is around 67-68...still a bit chilly for my AZ blood (when I was a kid I remember swimming in 65, probably cooler.) heck, I think it was this when I did a swim at Brighton a few years ago, and i know it was rather brisk when I swam in a PA lake too.

as for my spin this morning...
I was itching to get out, hadn't ridden for ~2 weeks. my computer said temps were in the 50s, so I put on a baselayer top under my jersey. felt great for the first ~25 miles (really all I should have done...). I made my usual stop, topped off bottles with water. then when I was about 10 miles from home, I realized I was dying, and made an additional stop. topped off bottles again (water), and took off that baselayer. should have gotten a Gatorade or something, but pressed on. was going to stop at a Starbucks later, well I did stop, but the line was still long (figured by 9 or 9:30 it would have died down). so I just cut what little speed I had, and just focused on getting myself home. then I made myself a smoothie
I did get in ~45 miles. but between getting over my stomach bug, the fluid thing, overheating, etc (some of those were probably connected), I probably should have done maybe 30.
