Sue recommended a pool that she said is near where I work. I checked it out today after I got off. Holy cow this place is CLOSE to where I work! Less than 2 miles and barely a 5 minute drive.
The pool is set up for water polo practice most of the time but several lanes are left open all the time for lap swimmers.
I got in and decided to just see what happens.
10 x 50 on the1:00
5 x 100 on the 2:00
5 x 100 K with fins
5 x 100 (25 fast, 75 moderate)
The last 100 I ended up doing 50 hard and 50 EASY. I got :36 which made me LAUGH. I used to break :30 with minimal effort. Now I was going full throttle and not even close. It was for fun.
2000 yards in total. I felt pretty good for most of the sets. The kicking hurt at the end. I am going to start adding some distance sets in soon enough.
The pool was nice and I had my own lane the whole time. Sue was there when I got out and she told me that it opens at 0500 and there is hardly anyone there in the mornings. Considering how close this place is to my work, I will most likely get a year pass there and be able to swim from 0500-0700 daily then head to work. I'll be able to get more yards in per day that way! :)
