I thought tonight would be an overcrowded workout since it's a postcard perfect sunny day in So Cal with temps in the 80's. The warmer it is outside usually brings out the swimmers. But not tonight as I had my own lane for the entire workout. Which was a good thing for me. Even if it was the wall lane. The workout itself was pretty easy which was also a good thing for me. When I jumped into the pool right off the bat I was feeling pretty strong and almost sprinting. Normally that is a bad sign as I won't last for the full 90 minutes. But I was able to build from my speedy warmup.
I warmed up a mix 750. Did 3x50's in which I stopped, looked around, fixed my goggles, putzed around, chatted a it before I pulled w/o paddles 300. I then put on the paddles and pulled a 100. I then took off the paddles and pulled a 250 IM. The coach stopped us before I started my free.
