    After several false springs, it appears spring is here in Minnesota (after we had a foot and a half of snow dumped on us not but 8 days ago), so I'm diving back into biking with gusto. Should be fun (and by fun I mean flirting with disaster) to see how dumping 100-150 miles of biking on top of my already pretty busy workout schedule goes. Weeeee!!!!

    Lakes are still mostly frozen over, but in theory only 2 months until open swim season!

    Biked to the pool for master swim this morning, made it in a little later than normal and had to leave a bit early for work, so only 2000m

    700m free
    200m IM
    200m back kicking streamline
    4x50 IMO build
    3x100 free build
    200m free lsc

    Wow. So many good swims. Yes, gently, I think in this group, "woo" means "WooHoo!!!!" :) I've never seen a snarky comment among the peeps here. Probably why I always come here first! I think you and I would make good lane buddies, especially if veggie curry take out is the reward...

    Mediocre swims here lately. Bummer. I had been feeling really strong and particularly floaty lately, but I think my body is tired. I'm always working on muscle memory, and I think when I'm fatigued, it's the first thing to go. I have been pushing myself to stay at a decent distance. It seems that lately just showing up is worth some credit :flushed:

    48 laps in 60 min. Couldn't really get my groove on until the end. I needed to save some of my legs for tomorrow's trail run.

    Welcome to the new people here! This is a great group :)

    Missed logging the last 2 Adult swim Club sessions. Unfortunately that's it for the year so back to dog paddling all by myself. I find it so much easier to get out with an organized group and a planned session. Will have to do a better job in the next 5 months until the Fall session's start.

    @emmab0902 You are to hard on yourself. ( I have the same problem with my running )
    You always have these amazing/inspiring swim sessions with so many great drills that we can all learn from.

    My swims are entirely front crawl or drills related to it (kicking usually). Yesterday was the first time in ages that I felt like my legs were getting used to kicking the same during a regular swim as they were during a drill. I couldn't maintain it for the entire swim set, but on and off I felt like my body was remembering bits and pieces of what it was supposed to be doing. My right leg seems to stop kicking when I breathe on that side. It was a quiet pool, thankfully. I think everybody is out running, hiking, walking, gardening, whatever they can do do be outside in the sun. I love an empty pool!
