It's too darn hot.

According to the Kinsey report
ev'ry average man you know
much prefers to play his favorite sport
when the temperature is low
but when the thermometer goes way up
and the weather is sizzling hot
Mister Adam for his madam is not
cause it's too too
it's too darn hot, it's too darn hot
It's too too too too darn hot

When I woke up I debated internally if I wanted to go swimming or not.  Then once I decided it was a matter of when?  I lost the battle and got to the pool at 7:30 to start my first workout.

From the coach:

Be careful!  It's hot!

1x500 loosen

6x50 kick with fins on 1:10 - alternate fly, bk, fr

1x300 catch-up 50, build 50

4x175 - on 3:00 - breathe every 5 on the 1st 50, every 4 on the 2nd, every 3 on the 3rd, anyway on the last lap.


6x100 on 1:30 with paddles and pull buoy - descend

loaf around and try to cool down

swim with us

I lost track of what I was doing on one of the 175's.  I think I did a 225.  Oh well!  The workout itself wan't too bad.  I was a bit overheated so I got out and sat on deck in the shade.  Then got back in and fiddled around a bit for a 100 swim and then 3x50's kick.  We did some kicking.  Umm...what I don't know.  I think 4x50's on 1:10? Maybe not.  Then we did 4x125's - Drill/Kick/Swim/Drill on 2:30 then a 25 sprint on 45.  I mixed it up.  Fly, back, fly and free.  Umm...then 4x50's Sprint.  I pulled them.  Then I swam to the other end of the pool and practice 3 starts off the blocks.  I'm trying the track start on for size.  I figure I have a year to LCM Nats in Omaha to learn the track start.
