Whenever I've been visiting Logan and have the chance I've been swimming up at Utah State's HPER pool, which has terrible hours and is closed on holidays. But I found this place: the Logan Sports Academy. Not only was it open, but it is a much better option for lap swimming. It opens at 5 am, has a indoor and outdoor pool. The facility is ultra clean and upscale. The pool area is missing a big lap clock and selection of lap swim equipment (for travelers like me who are at the mercy of the facility). The daily fee for non members is pricey: $10. But worth it if you are doing a long swim or want to be pampered with a really nice experience.
The facility has a basketball court, racquetball, lots of cardio equipment and I especially enjoyed the weightroom after my swim. Lots of free weights and machines to choose from.
Cathi and I have long dreamed of retiring in Logan, and this place if it's still around will definitely be my home base. This morning I swam outside in the outdoor pool. Although it was a little warm for my liking, it wasn't terrible. Ended up swimming:
10,500 - 3 x (2000 free, 1000 pool buoy, 500 IM/kick drill)
10,650 yards total in 2:55
