Yesterday to celebrate Columbus Day I made spinach pies from scratch. I made the dough in the bread machine and cooked everything else from fresh ingredients. I almost never cook from scratch so it was a pretty impressive undertaking for me. Best of all they actually turned out pretty good and I have one left over for lunch today.
This morning was another LCM swim at the Culver City Plunge. It was a pretty brisk ride on the bicycle but it was worth it. The water was perfect and it's long course. I use to hate swimming long course but now I want to swim LCM everyday. Swimming a 50 LCM butterfly is a dream come true as I just my stroke into it's natural groove and just keep going with no pesky walls to slow me down.

On the 3x100's free on 1:35 I messed up the math and did two of them on 1:25. A few lanes over were two age group swimmers being coached and the sad thing was that I was swimming freestyle while one of the kids swam almost on my pace while swimming breaststroke.
This workout was a mixture of free and IM as I plan on swimming fly, back and IM this weekend at the meet at UCLA. Next Tuesday I'll be back to my distance free training.
