Business as Usual: 2500 SCY
1500 FR, 400IM Kick, 3x100P, 6x50 pace clock broken so no times and guessed the intervals.

Had an 8 lane outdoor pool to myself at 9:00 AM in 65F air temp and bright sunshine.

Tomorrow is the last day the outdoor pool open, as the weather turns cold. I will savor it.

I had a good swim today. Started off with my 60 min booking then we all get kicked out, and I went out by the exit in the back of the pool and looped around to the front to see if there were any drop in spots remaining. There was one so went in for 40 min more. My "main set" during this second slot

10x100

each 100 was 25m underwater dolphin kick, 25m back stroke recovery, 25m dolphin kick on back or 25M fly, 25 m back recovery

I had not done any set of under water dolphin kicking since before Covid19 lockdown so this was the first time. half of them with fins, half without. With fins I was needing 18-20 kicks across the pool. Without fins 28-30 kicks. It was kind of exciting to do this again it feels like being a "real swimmer" vs adult onset guy

I’m still swimming in the ocean. Most of the group Saturday was college kids and I can’t keep up with them so I just did my own thing. Swam the buoy line east and then diagonal over to the end of the Avila Pier and then headed west and looped around all the sailboats and back to shore.

The water was 60F, air was 75F. Water was quite clear today.

My pool is still closed. :(

They were ready to reopen in early September after a summer of overhauling.....something. When they refilled it they discovered they have a leak somewhere and they still haven't found where it is and have no predicted date of re-opening.

Me too! The water has been from high 50s to about 70 yesterday. But we've had some big surf lately and several have donated goggles and fins to the sea. I even got tumbled a few times. I find it fun, but several freak out and don't do anything but wash in and out in the impact zone. My swims haven't been that long, lately, averaging maybe 2500 yards. But, had a nice 4000 yard swim yesterday, swimming to a secluded cove along the Laguna coastline that has at least a 100 years old pool cut into the rocks. No swim for me this morning. Taking a break.

Having flashbacks to college as the temperature starts to drop especially in the AM, and the outdoor pool I'm swimming at has a sometimes-broken heater. Having to shower via on-deck hose before jumping in the pool at 50F air temp really sucks.


Oct 1:
300 easy
8x50 drill
6x50 25 sprint/25 easy
2x {500 smooth on 6:30, 5x100 with paddles and ankle band on 1:25}
2x50 easy
3100scy

30 min on the treadmill.


Doing the 'Hawaii from Home' this week, which really just means business as usual in the pool and for running, but a 5x increase in bike volume. Plus I have a sprint tri at the end of the week due to a cancelled July race entry deferment.

First swim in over a month.

3 x 500 + 200 c/d

Question for old time swimmers - where would one get those swimmer coats that swimmers wear at meets? At my pool, we have to show up and leave in our suits. In the summer it was fine - wear a t-shirt and shorts and then leave with a towel wrapped around your waist. That works when it's 90F outside. Now it's getting a little cold so I'm thinking one of these coats would be better than trying to put sweats on over a wet me.

Thanks!

Speedo or TYR - they're called swim parkas.

Gym just switched back to regular hours: pool has been open since 9/1, but the locker rooms are still closed, so that's a problem for some of us [me]

Also, might I suggest the following thread title, courtesy of Flying Fish Brewing

Thanks, that has been suggested - I used to fail miserably doing that on the beach when surfing, so there's some anxiety there

... And you're welcome!!!

By luck I had an excellent swim day.

Showed up late for my one hrs swim slot and only had 32 minutes, so basically I did warmup and kickwork and two 200IM's hard. Then I got out of the pool, put on my backpack, and exited the pool and for 12 minutes ran around the parking lot and showed up for the next swim 15 min later crossing my fingers that I could get the one drop in slot they allocate. I was in luck so got another 60 min slot. Immediately launched into 7x400IM on 8 min departure...was a bit slow on the last few by 10 seconds or so but got it all done in 56.20. Then managed to cram in another 5 min of cooldown (got a few minutes of overtime before lifeguards kicked me out). So 4800m total with 7x400IM !!! awesome swim day during Covid19 limitations!
