Oy! 96F air temp 89F water temp! Ouchie! But I haven't swam in almost two weeks so I had to swim something. I got to the pool and realized I once again put on my Garmin GPS Running watch not my Garmin Swim watch. Ugh! That and I had no battery for the deck clock. So I just sorta swam and counted rest times.
5x100's Pulling about 15 seconds rest
5x100's IM about 15 secs rest
So 1,400 yards is better then nothing. I'm going to try to swim on Thursday but we will see. These afternoon thunderstorms keep me dry most afternoons.
