well the group I swam with was out of a pool. the coach invited us to try the masters group at the local Y, which I did on Friday. it is indoors, which should have been my first clue. anyway, I really wanted to like it, and had a decent set. but I had breathing problems which caused high heart rate, etc. they have panels on the roof that can retract (only one panel was retracted) and garage-type doors on the sides (all were closed). it is a Y...stuffy stale air, water that is too warm...

so I decided I'd mostly just swim at Sendero. it is so close to home. there is a pace clock, but it is analog, and there's no lights on it. so in the morning, I can't see it. I figured I'd try no clock for a while and see how it goes.
oddly, I kept times almost exactly what I would have planned to if I used a clock. 7:30 for the 500s and 2:00 for the 100 breast. my Apple watch did a decent job of breaking my set down for me.
I may swim with AquaTex periodically if I get a craving for a group and intervals.

after Friday at the Y, I did swim both Sat and Sun. just about 40 min on Sat, 2300, then 3500 on Sun, about an hour. at least when I swim on weekends, it is during the day, so I can see the clock
