    Went to the pool - lane swim cancelled.
    A local company had rented the Pool and opened it up to the general Public for an open swim night so people who don't normally go or can't afford to take the whole family get in for free. It's a great thing for them, not for us lane swimmers. Oh well at least I got a 10 block walk in.

    Feeling everyone's pain on swimmers with no common sense/courtesy.
    We have a lady who is blind in her left eye so she likes swimming with her right side against the rope for improved visual reference - opposite direction to the one diagram they have on the wall. 99.9% of us understand.
    A retired engineer who is socially challenged (think Sheldon of Big Bang Tv Show) always tries to demand we switch swim directions because the drawing shows the other rotation pattern. We have learned that if we try to discuss it he go's all nerd master on us. We now do a simple show of hands vote - majority rules - democratic principals - he grumbles but accepts. You would think after 5 years he would have learned & accepted.

    Short (reeeaaally short) swim yesterday after lifting, before deep water class. But I did get in and do it. Right now, just getting there is the challenge.

    1km short swim this morn
    but......17 mins tops - which is quick for me!

    @beerfoamy your 1k time is my 750m time right now.
    And that's what I did last night 750m x 2. The local sprint Triathlon is 750m so that's why I do 30 length sets when in lane swim. 5 people in the pool so not sharing lanes makes it a lot easier.
    Still working on increasing distance and little technique improvements.

    Reading everyone’s posts and got inspired to go for a swim. Got my swim suit on, my swim cap, goggles, headed down to the pool only to find it closed! Grrr. Still doing repairs apparently. I have to wait two more days.

    Welcome @Kupla71 !

    My wife loves deep water classes. She has spondyloarthritis. Deep water classes eliminates all joint impact.

    I did swim. Aquatic Springs Pool in Las Vegas. I love that one. About 55 minutes. 10 minutes freestyle, five minutes backstroke--then drills for breaststroke and butterfly. At least one 100 of full stroke breast. A bunch of fly 25s. More drills to sharpen and focus. 25 meters can be so-o-o-oh interesting.

    Cheers!
