I didn't even try to swim at Sendero; air temp was about 30, and they're only supposed to be open if it is 40 or higher, so headed straight to the gym. For some reason, TX DOT decided to close the freeway entrance that I normally use; at the early hour the frontage road wasn't too bad. But when I was going back home, the folks going to work weren't so fortunate.

I had the whole pool to myself for most of the workout. There was a guy kind of floating in the other lane for a bit, perhaps warming down from weights.

After not swimming 200s before last week, that actually felt pretty good, and I felt like I could have done more. I thought up this set as I was driving there, and the combination worked out well for me. got my 200s down to about 2:40, 100s to 1:12, and 50s to 32.
I can't remember the last time I've done some longer that may be up next. When I swam with the Mesa group, we usually had the option of a mile about every 4 to 6 weeks. I didn't always take that option though.

I had pulled out my pulling gear and thought of swimming 3 200s then pulling 2. but I lifted yesterday (biceps and back). my arms were pretty sore and although I normally love pulling (ask anyone who has swum with me), I didn't want to abuse my arms too much. I upped my weights doing preacher curls, so was probably extra sore.
