Cloudy With A Chance Of Swimming

Earlier today I got a team email announcing that the WeHo pool will be closed Sunday for some issues with chemical balances.  This was to be the last Sunday afternoon practice till the fall so I was looking forward to one last Sunday afternoon swim.  So no more Sundays unless I do a lap swim as I am not in the mood to drive to Van Nuys early on a Sunday morning.  I decided since I might not swim to Monday I'd hit the one hour evening workout tonight.  Once I was in the water it only took a 25 yard swim to realize that something was wrong with the water as it was cloudy.  After practice I was pretty itchy.  Here is the couldy workout:

Warm Up:
200 Swim
200 Pull
200 Kick (600)

100 IM Drill
then something else followed by something else.  damn I hate it when I can't remember. (300/900)

Main Set:
4x100's on 1:30 2 & 4 Fast.  I did these all backstroke (400)
50 Kick on 55
50 Free swim on 45
50 Kick (150/550)
4x75's on 1:10 2 & 4 Fast.  I did these freestyle (300/850)
50 Kick on 55
50 Free swim on 45
50 Kick(150/1000)
4x50's on 50 2 & 4 Fast.  I did these backstroke. (200/1200)
50 Kick on 55
50 Free swim on 45
50 Kick (150/1350)
4x25's on 30 2 & 4 Fast.  I did these butterfly. (100/1450)

50 easy (1500)

After that we did 3 sets of blast offs.  Which was you jumped vertically 5x in a streamlined position then swim into the wall fast, flip turn and then easy for the rest of the 50.  (150/1650)
