About 2.2k set with my tri club on Sunday eve.inc some IMs and a flat-out 25-50-75-100-75-50-25 pyramids.

But flop-haired tosspot Boris has and fecked it all up and shut all pools, open air lidos, OW venues etc IN England at least a month with knob all science to support it. FFS.
The local river is about 9 or 10 C and falling.

Dev,
It’s 25 yards. Indoors. Basement pool. He allows me to slide in. Swim and leave. I rarely see anyone. It’s great.
Alone all the time isn’t great. But that’s ok

2000 meters at the house, mostly drills. Cool overnight air temps here in Texas has dropped the water temp into the low 70’s, so busted out the Roka sleeveless wetsuit for the first time this season.

I plan to swim through the entire winter as long as the water temp is 65+. Hopefully the cost of heating the pool to keep it above that doesn’t bankrupt me.

If you cover your pool it won't bankrupt you. Keeping it at 70° is quite a bit different than keeping it at 80 or 82°. Covering it is important tho.

Thanks, I’ll keep that as an idea. I’m okay with it being 70-ish and wearing a wetsuit. Trying to maintain 80 over the winter is unrealistic, and I’d rather not mess with putting a cover off / on and having to store it. But this is my first year with a pool, so I’ll see how it goes.

Is this like some secret basement 25m single lane tube pool? I often thought that strip of lawn from the side of my house all the way to the back fence is completely useless and I could put a single lane 25m pool over there !!!!

Ha ha, yeah Dev, it is exactly like that. I slide in like a ninja and slice off some yards and sneak out... no one even knows I was there!

Last week #mymainset (its my insta acct) I did 30 x 100 in sets of 5
I did 4 x 100 on 1:15 *held 108s or 109s then a fast one on 2min and held 103s range.

That was a fun one for sure.

Haha!

So at one of the local city pools they have 9:45-10:45am lane swim and 10:45-11:45 am 50+ swim. Right now it seems there is no rule against a regular lane swim and 50+ swim, but you can't book two lane swims.

So assume I book on time, I am trying to get a 2 hrs slot Mon, Wed, Fri and do sprint sessions Tue-Thu-Sat-Sun. Today was a solid 5500m day. Main set was 15x100IM. Second main set was 8x200modified IM (50 fly-25 back-25 breast-100 free). In these sets the 25back was half length of pool dolphin on back 5 kicks under water and the rest above water.

Also lots of dolphin kicking with and without fins around the main sets.

I am training for the 25x400IM during Xmas. One of the guys who works at the city of Ottawa and one of the key guys at one of the local masters clubs is renting a 4 hrs time slot for 16 of us to give the 100x100 (or whatever you want to do) a shot at an informal private workout/in house race to close off the year.

That's always the first marker of success. "Swim longer than it takes you to shower" is another good accomplishment.

Continuing with recent workout trend, quick swim followed by quick run. Works great for weekday prework training.

400yd warm up, trying to relearn bilateral breathing
3 x 25-50-75-100-75-50-25 Fairly fast
400yd cool down, concentrating on strong 2 beat kick
2k total @ 1:41 average overall
drive home
3 mile run @ 8:30

I hate watching these Total Immersion videos, but damn they have helped. 4 weeks ago I was one of those "my legs keep sinking".

I'd like a pool of water temp 60 to do my workouts!

My "pool" is a few miles north of Amarillo. (Whonnock Lake, BC, Canada).

Not sure of the water temp. but air temp was 11 degrees = Celsius.

Promo Motion long sleeved wetsuit, neoprene booties, swim cap, gloves.

Crossed lake in just under 20 min. Return in 17 min. A PB for the time of year.

Out local municipal pool is still closed. Locals say it is to save the muni. $$$

Was able to sneak away for a 55 minute swim in the hot pool today. The lake where I'm staying is now out of bounds, as the fresh water is 53 degrees. Tried a 17 minute swim the other day with my swim/run wetsuit and hoodie, and was pretty cold and frozen by the end. Will be back home this weekend and back on the pool schedule. Dan and I are trying to get a good 3k in before the deadline, he did a pretty good one for him last week in 44;39. I still have my speed, but lost most of my endurance over the past 6 weeks of evacuation, so will try and cram in some before the exam.
