Day 1

First posting.  Just trying this out.  Under the recomendation of my friend Gords, I decided to start a daily blog of my swimming to help keep me motivated and on track for my 3 long swims this year.
For this week I only did 1250 on Monday due to feeling sick and my body demanding that I get out NOW!
Got some pretty good sleep last night and was able to get 3500 in today.
WU was 300 then 2 x 25 kick, 50 swim, 25 kick
Core was 10 x 200 trying to go negative split by 100
5 x 100 pull with paddles
4 x 100 breathing every 25 by 2,3,4,5 strokes
2 x 50 CD
3500 total

I'm part of the Utah Open Water Swimmers group and information about us can be found HERE  The site is run by my friend Josh.  He is more like me and swims for the enjoyment of it and is not as concerned with being that fast.  I'm fast for short distance but slow and steady for longer distances.
The 2nd swimmer is a beast of a swimmer that seems immune to the cold while he's swimming in it.  He by far has a higher tolerance for the cold than I do. Gords
These are my friends that I have recently met and I'm very glad we are becoming swim buddies.

  1. Nice to see you're blogging your stuff. Keep it going. I'll read every single post you do, so be aware you have an active following! As for today's temp at BL it was 48.3°. I see on the weather forecast that Thursday's high will be 62°! Although it takes a while for high temps to bring up the water temps, at least the air temp does have an impact on how cold the water really feels, so this week should be MUCH better than last week! Keep up the pool swims, although it isn't as fun, it definitely has its value. Nice job!
