It Never Fails...
What temperature of water is too cold to swim in? Or... too hot?

Just Another LCM Swim

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.

100 warm 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.
