Yesterday afternoon I swam at Life Time in the outdoor 25 meter pool. Toward the end I had the pool to myself. The water temperature was very nice; unfortunately I believe that the outdoor pool will be closing in October.
600 swim, 400 pull
Main set, no additional rest:
4 x (1 x 300 @ 5:00/3 x 100 @ 1:40), held 4:14 for the 300s and 1:20 for the 100s
This morning I swam 4000 yards at Barton Springs with Scott and David. It was cloudy and cooler, with an air temp in the upper 60s. Fortunately the rain didn't start until about an hour later. My stroke began to feel pretty good as I warmed up. We swam a stronger pace today than we normally do. I noticed only mild elbow discomfort. I will be training on my own this week but plan to swim with Longhorn Masters at Mabel Davis on Saturday. Next week the swim center at UT is scheduled to reopen.
