Brrr...50F. First swim in 2 weeks and of course the temp drops to way too cold! I set my alarm last night so I'd get up and be at the pool by 7:30am. I hit snooze a few times but made myself swim. I just needed to get in the pool even with my shoulder acting up a bit.
600 Yards. I'm saying 600 cuz I just swam and swam. My Garmin Swim say's 525 yards but I was having human error tech issues with the watch. These errors continued all workout. Guess I need to swim more to use it right.

So October sucked for swimming. I swam twice but at least I beat September! November has 5 Sundays so I should swim 4 of them. I'm going to a TRX Trainer Summit one of those weekends so that means 4 possible swim weekends. Notice I didn't post any times/splits cuz' boy do I suck in the pool. I did have to pull back a few times on my stroke speed when I felt a bit of something in my shoulder. I was babying myself. I so wish we had a pool at the gym so I could at least get in some easy lap swims but alas we don't. Oh well at I say from time to time "At least I got a swim in."
Time to eat, recover and get ready for 9 holes of golf this afternoon.
