Finally, summer is back

I haven't had a swim like this in about a month. First of all it was warm, air and water. About 80 air and 64 water. Second it was not foggy or raining! The tide was exceptionally low, so low that I had to wade out about 200 yards that I normally would have swum. It was so low that even once I got going the sea grass was so long that it was nearly tangling around my legs and arms. Yuck! Something I would have shuddered at last summer but now is just a gross annoyance. After that it was great. Sadly I had no company.

Tomorrow I have a good workout for Kathy and I and whoever else might show up.

2 x 400 w/u; 400 free, 400 pull/drill
3 x 300 @ 4:30
4 x 200 @ 3:00
5 x 100 @ 1:30, hold 1:15 or faster

total 3000 yards

Saturday is Rockland which I think will be a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to doing this race with Kathy and --- yes! -- we are finalizing plans for Alcatraz next summer. Shark Fest!
