    pool still too hot - got to listen to lot more excuses about how they can't change the temperature that easily - 4 years now! 4 years they have been told during summer that the pool is too hot!

    1250m in total including circuits

    200m relaxed
    200m with fins

    CIRCUITS
    200m breathing to 13
    50m arms only with dips at ends
    50m legs only with squat jumps at ends
    x5 50m sprints - kept to 44 secs each time and had around 40sec break in between each set
    50m brick push underwater. had breather at 25m. But didn't surface on each length which was good.

    250m relaxed after circuits

    Today's swim felt like it was through molasses. Didn't make it to the pool before masters swim started. And the lake I swim in is experiencing a fish die off and smells rancid, so no OWS for me tonight. Bah.

    200m kick
    200m free
    8x50m - odd IMO/even free

    Fell 5 miles into my 8 mile long run this weekend and skinned my knee. Took Tuesday off from the pool because my knee was oozing. Went swimming today and the pool sloffed off my scab, bah. I'm frustrated because open swim season started Tuesday and I'm going to wait a little longer to get in the lake :/

    Also, signed up for an aquabike at the end of July on a whim - it's half ironman length, so 1.2 mile swim and a 56 mile bike. One of my hesitations for committing to half ironman is that I'm not sure I can get through the swim in the time limit. This aquabike is cheap ($60), so if I don't make it through the swim, I'll know I need to radically shake up my swim training. And if I do make it, then I'll be more confident in training for a half ironman next year.

    Master's swim today, substitute coach who kicked my behind

    2400m

    500m before masters swim
    2x(4x50) - 3 free/1 breast
    6x100 free at 2:30 (which was much slower than the time he had written - I had to laugh that the slowest time he wrote was 2:30 for a 125. Maybe one day. )
    4x50 - fins with slow arms/90% kick
    4x75 - kick intensity decreases throughout each 75
    4x65 - kick intensity increases throughout each 75
    100 cool down

    I’ve been fighting a summer cold and giving myself a few days off. Went yesterday at the last minute (I keep my swim pack in my car, just in case) and had a great swim-finally!! 1.5 mi in a little over an hour.
