this pool has just 2 lanes. there was a guy in 1 lane so I jumped in the other (which I prefer). toward the end of my kick set, another guy came and asked if he could share with me. I said so long as he stayed near the wall. surprisingly he did, we didn't get in each others' way, and he was still there when I left. he wasn't fast, but definitely persistent.

anyway, I did a similar set on Wednesday, but with 500s (4 rounds), and I had a much more difficult time with 1:30 interval. today I held 1:22, maybe even 1:18 on that last round.

I normally swim at Sendero Springs, but that pool was only open 11-5 this week, not open for morning swim. so I swam at the gym; not ideal, but better than nothing. and at least there's a HUGE pace clock (I can even see from the other side).

for the year I'm just shy of 368 miles. I'll probably swim tomorrow and bring that up to 370. I dropped my swimming a bit this year, a little purposely, a little due to illness and travel. my goal this year was to drop some weight, and I lost about 25 pounds. for me, that just doesn't happen from only swimming, so I added in some treadmill running at the gym and weights.
for those who may have read my blog years ago, I did some insane double daily workouts back then. I didn't want to do that now, so I just dropped back my swimming a bit to squeeze in the gym.
