Go Swim - All Strokes - The Crutch
Tuesday's Swim Report - What Not To Wear In & Around The Pool

Quick 45 Minute Swim

Two swims in one week.  Woah, I'm almost sorta a swimmer.  Sorta a swimmer is key.  Since today is Tuesday I teach spinning at 5:45am and 7am then I'm mostly done for the morning.  So I try and make it to 10am swim practice.  But today I was running late and missed it.  I think it was subconscious.  So I did get in a nap instead.  Then hit the pool for the lap swim at 12.  I knew that I only had to 12:50 when the lap swim was over.  So I figured I'd just swim to swim.

I warmed up a 200 swim before switching to something a bit easier and quicker.

I was going to do 10 but I was bored.  That is why I hate lap swims.  I get bored easily.  Easily distracted by time, water and my thoughts.  Definatly no eyecandy.

I missed the 3rd one with my watch.  I thought I hit the button but I guess not!  Doh!  And that was it.  It was almost 12:50 and the 1pm water volleyball players were arriving.  Figured it was time to go!  So 1,950 yards.  Nothing to be excited about but as always "a swim is a swim."  Since I'm teaching 4 classes on Thursday morning I doubt I will swim at all.  We shall see if I get up tomorrow morning and swim.  I want to but I should sleep in.  UsmsgtdNow if you are still reading this...CALLING ALL COACHES!  I'm looking to add some Guest Blogging Posts to the17thman.  I had an idea of coaches submitting a Swim Set with detailed explanation of what is expected of the swimmer of the set and why do it.  So if you are a coach and would like your .15 seconds of swim fame email me.  Besides having your own indvidual post I'll in a different post will try to swim the set per instructions.
