An extraordinary summer here in the Fraser Valley, in October. Another noon-hour Whonnock Lake adventure. Went too hard and swam off course on the crossing. Yikes 15:05. Bilateral on the way back, breaks every 150 strokes and came home in 14:10. Something to be said about proper siting and rest intervals! Pool free since March 20.

He was smiling when he got out of the pool - - or maybe that was jaw rigor from clenching the snorkel

Just embarking on a (fairly active but still ) couch (in terms of bike and run) to HIM.

The ocean is down to well below 10C (50(?)f) so went back to the pool this week.

Tuesday 46k on the bike
Wednesday 6:30am pool session just to see what the mornings are like (busy) 10 minute warm up followed by 35 min drills
Friday... first run in absolutely ages / years 5k ish slow and easy...
Today back in the pool 5x10min sets (30 second rest) at easy cruise (1:50 - 2:00 per 100m ) except 1x10 min set with fins nice fast and super smooth ...and halfway through the 3rd set where someone gym bro decided they wanted to race me so I blew them out of the water and lapped them twice in 5 lengths - that will teach him to splash me 😜)... really should buy a swim tracker.... pool is only 25m so i can't count laps... really miss the ocean space already... also nursing a neck strain from over teaching trying to get mousetrap behind the back wall of the built in cupboard...

undecided on a 2nd workout for today.

Side note: DO THIS DRILL
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esV3XDAPk2M


I do this every session as part of my 8x50 drill warmup. As an age grouper, we would do longer sets only doing this drill, and working up to doing it fast, like 8x100 on a 5-10s rest interval. Working up to doing this drill fast (called '6-1-6 drill' in the video, I call it '6-kick roll drill') is good for optimizing body position in the stretch/catch phase and improving your kick.

Lucky enough to still be lake swimming here in Canada. Had to plow through 150 metres of lily pads on the way out. Crossed in 15:20. Took it easy on the way back and found a "cleaner" line to shore - 14:30.

Getting a bit chilly. Next time 2 swim caps!

Saturday was the Odyssey Swimrun Austin course preview: total of ~8.5 miles, of which about 3k yards swimming, including two cliff jumps, in full swimrun gear. Hard to nail down the open water pace, on several swims I had to float a bit while looking for the flag to mark the exit.

Still our of our house from the fire escape, staying on a lake. So doing 15 to 25 minute straight swims in coolish water about 4 days a week. Been able to get in the pool in Palmdale about once ever two weeks, so just doing some long rest faster swimming. My wife is now swimming for first time in 9 years, so designing some workouts where we can do the same interval, just different distances or stroke. So did this today with little smoke:

300s(4;16)
8x150p@2;30(1;51 to 1;43)
100IM kick(1;55)
4x50 breast@1;30(43/42/41/40) 100IM kick(1;55)
2x50@1;30, free(36) fly(35)
100IM kick(1;54)
2000SCY

Nice to see I ain't the only one in a lake still.
It's been a VERY long open water season.
Started mid-March and still at it.
2 swim caps and gloves make it quite doable.
Other than a chilled out beaver (how Canadian is that), I had the lake to myself yesterday.
16 minutes to cross.
On the way back with the noon-day sun reflecting off the water, I became disoriented.
Swam through the biggest patch of water weeds ever on the way back "home."
At this point in the season, it's not really about the time, it's about the experience.
& I had that.
Ok, ok, 1500-ish metres. 32 minutes.
What else would you expect from a Hydrosloth?

My pool is still closed due to a water leak that they can't find. They thought they had it a couple of weeks ago, did some repairs and filled the pool.... and it leaked. So now they are bringing in a company to do thermal scans looking for voids under the concrete to see if they need to replace the membrane under the deep end.

Good times.
