the air temp was almost balmy this morning, in the mid-50s. I usually need to wear a sweatshirt for the drive over and to feel warm enough before I get in the water. but today was just a t-shirt.

I hadn't done sets of fast swims with a built-in rest for a while, was something we'd do somewhat regularly (maybe monthly) when I swam with masters groups in AZ. we'd sometimes even begin from the blocks...but I'm not sure if the lifeguards at Sendero would like that, maybe I'll ask sometime when I'm the only one.

I was just shy of 49 miles of swimming in January. Not a record, as I hit 60+ in Jan a few years ago, but much more than last year.
I really need to start doing some longer swims to prepare for my Saguaro lake swim, but in the middle of the moving process, I'm not sure when that will happen. who knows, maybe I can get away for a bit this weekend, if the weather cooperates. I'd really like to get to Barton Springs and at least start with about 5km.
