Day of adjustments

The university pool is closed today. So I decided to try to use the Y pool…and of course, the information at the website is wrong; swim team starts at 6, not 8.


Try again, after PT and now they have the pool in 25 yard configuration . Ok, good enough but my head wasn’t right:

600 of free, back, side

200 of 25 kick, 25 swim (no fins); balance

200 in 3:40 (pretty sorry)


250 in 4:42 (boo)

5 x 50 swim, 50 side on the 3 minutes (49, then 48 each)

100 in 1:42 (wanted 200 but got gassed)

100 side

200 in 3:44 (tempo cruise swim)

In all, 1000 yards of sort-of hard swimming…2200 yards total. Better than zip.

Next time: get there at 5 and tough it out.

My back felt ..crappy but I decided to stretch it out and hike anyway.

Well, it was a hike..not that bad as short hikes go. But I did have to stretch a few times. I really need to focus on tightening the abs.
