Since I was on my own I didn't push myself that much.  I just kept under the intervals making sure I got some rest.  The water was warm so I figured work on my stroke and have a relaxing swim.  By the time I was finishing up people started to enter the pool so I finished just in time.  This will be last real swim for a week as I'll be in Florida.  The pool that is available to me is a 20 yard pool.  Ugh!  I was hoping to swim with a certain Masters team but they do not allow visitors to swim with them.  I was shocked to find that out.  But it is at a retirement community so I'd be lapping the swimmers anyways but even so non-residents of the community are not allowed to swim in the competition pool.  Which is odd as they had the "Senior Games" at this pool.  No need to fight the man on this stupid issue.  I'll just swim with the noodlers and enjoy my time in Florida.  Oh and the picture in this post was taken at the recreational pool I'll be swimming in.  I'm so going to do flip turns on those people!  Kidding.  Although the lady wearing a sun visor in the pool cracks me up!  I can just hear it "excuse me, can you not splash when you are swimming.  You are getting my hair wet". 

Happy Holidays To All!
