Swim workout, May 10

swimmer blowing bubblesLotStreetWiz woke me up at 7:00 this morning so we could go swimming at a the Settlement House community pool near Grange Park. He had a precise workout from his coach; I just wanted to practise and get in some distance.

My workout in 25-yard pool:

  • warm-up: (50 yd. breaststroke + 50 yd. front crawl) x 3 = 300 yd.
  • body-core rolling, 50 yd.
  • front crawl, 50 yd. x 2 = 100 yd.
  • kicking with flutterboard, 50 yd.
  • front crawl , 50 yd. x 3 = 150 yd.
  • cool-down: side stroke, 50 yd x 2 = 100 yd.

total, 750 yards (675 m)
Over the same period, LotStreetWiz swam 1700 yards.

Here’s a look around the pool. East wall:

    I find it a rather murky environment, but they’re getting new lampage in two weeks.

    My head is the little dot in the south wall picture on the left, in lane 2.

    monado, of course, should not have been taking these pictures. I thought that’s what she was doing. Hmph.

    Unfortunately the entire centre, pool included, will be closed this summer, just as my Ironman training peaks, to be substantially refurbished. I’ll probably join the YMCA and swim there. Sigh.
