It's Too Darn Hot To Swim With My Baby Workout

For some reason I had the Cole Porter song in my head after my workout.  Mainly because the pool was too darn hot and the sun was right above me.  My scalp started to feel like I was being fried by the Tuesun so I gave up swimming after 30 minutes.  The air is in the 90's, humidity is up there and the pool water is mid-80's F.  At least I got a swim.  Don't know if I'll swim again before Saturday.

Warm Up

200 Swim

200 Kick

Oh!  I was going to do a longer or bigger pryamid but it was too hot.  (700/1100)

Once again I was going to do a ladder but the pool was making me ill and started to feel a leg cramp coming.  I figured I'd call it a day.  I did 4 spin classes yesterday and I have 1 later today so I'm getting enough cardio.  I just need to work on my swim technique and speed.  Hopefully Sunday mornings will do it. (200/1500)

My Progress for Go The Distance 2014
Month    Total Distance
Jan    2.76 miles (=4,850 yards, =4,435 meters)
Feb    4.15 miles (=7,300 yards, =6,675 meters)
Mar    5.82 miles (=10,250 yards, =9,373 meters)
Apr    7.41 miles (=13,050 yards, =11,933 meters)
May    13.59 miles (=23,926 yards, =21,878 meters)
Jun    2.84 miles (=5,000 yards, =4,572 meters)
Total    36.58 miles (=64,376 yards, =58,866 meters)

Got to step up my yardage but at least I'm a head of Jan!  Although I did look at some of the yardage of my swim folks on my old team and while I'm at 36 miles they are already past 100.  I'm way behind!
