Back to work!! This goes for swimming and students returning to school. I got up at 0430 and was at the pool and getting in a 0455. Fun way to start an early day. I did not like being at the pool and I'd MUCH rather be in open water but you do what you gotta do with the time you have. Hopefully as the weeks go by and my schedule gets more routine, I'll be able to squeeze in open water swims.
Did about 1000 for warmup then just sets of 500 but no real speed intended, just steady.
I timed 2 of my sets and they were 7:54 and 7:55. Pretty even paced. I'm starting to think this "new stroke" is bupkis! I'm going to play around with it a bit more and probably get some film of it but I'm not sure it's going to be as great as I thought. We'll see.
I ended up with 3000 yards total. Not a bad first day back after a week off.
