My plans for a special swim in my 250th pool could not have worked out more perfectly on Friday morning as I got in a massive 5,600 LCM workout with Rose Bowl Masters (http://www.1001pools.com/#!Milestone...7b6964fd22e4db), not quite the 10K the rest of the group was doing, but a great workout for me.

I got in a great yoga class and treadmill run on Saturday before attempting my 3 x 300 test set in SCM this morning:

Comments:
  • On the face of it, this was a flat result versus last month, but I was definitely feeling the effects of both Friday's long swim and Saturday's harder-than-anticipated yoga. Very happy with how this week of training unfolded and looking forward to getting deeper back into the groove of training.
