New Life

I love watching the sun come up in the morning!  Felt like
I was swimming open water when I swim in this pool.
Today I had a wonderful experience in the pool.  Felt symbolic of a new life in aquatics for me.  After the first half of my workout (once the 50M pool opened), the masters group moved to that pool.  At first I was kind of disgusted because there were tons of leaves and pits of trash in the pool, but then I felt a little at home (as if I was swimming in Bountiful Lake).  The wind picked up and while I didn't have to deal with chop and waves, the wind was fairly strong and felt great on my arms when they were out of the water during the recovery.  So that kind of encouraged a long stroke so that I could exaggerate my recovery to feel the cool wind on my arms.  The swim in the 50M pool today went by so fast!  I was sad once 8:30 came around and I had to get out!

Started out in the 25Y pool with:
400 free, then joined Kyle and the other group of Masters:
600 Warmup
900 - 12 x 75's drill IM by 75
500 - 10 x 50's kick with fins on :55
1800 - 9 x 200's free to back by 25 each set (pull) on 2:50
(4200 yards)
Then moved to the 50 M pool and did:
1000 - 10 x 100's on 1:30
Then did my own thing:
2000 pull
2000 finger paddles
1000 free
300 - 100 back/breast/free easy

6300 Meters + 4200 yards = @11,090 yards in 3:10
