Getting blown off by an Airheaded Aggie

Last week I had hoped to swim 10K yards on Saturday at the USU HPER pool.  So I called last Thursday to the pool to confirm the hours on Saturday and that there weren't any conflict.  Everything was a go.  I show up on Saturday at 10:45am fully geared up and ready to put in a three hour 10K, but guess what, there was a high school swim meet and they said it would be going pretty much all day.  I was a little pissed off to say the least.  I said,  "Man!  I call early in the week just to make sure, and I'm told 11-2pm is fine."    I guess next time I call I'll have to be extra vigilant in making sure the caller isn't just trying to tell me what I want to hear, but what the truth is.

I went to the Community center to see if they have a pool and they don't.  So I didn't get in my long swim on Saturday.  I was very frustrated. But today I felt the need to make it up a little so I did 10K this morning:

2000 yards free easy
1000 - 4 x 250's :15 ri
1000 pull
1000 kick with fins
1000 - 10 x 100's free on 1:30
1000 - 10 x 100's IM on 2:00
2000 - 2000 free with TT on :57
1000 - 500 free pull (50 pull w/ankle band, no buoy, 50 drill), 500 pads only

10000 yards total

After Lifeguarding class I quickly did another 2000 yards straight in 30 minutes.

Total for the day: 12000 yards
