2006-05-22 Swim

Quick swim, in both time (15 minutes) and speed (broke my 100 yard PR... twice!)

I was testing my fancy new underwater videocamera housing. And by "fancy" I mean "ziploc bag on steroids, for which I paid $100.00." It kept the camera 100% dry as a whistle, but I got no useful footage, because:
  1. The pool was FILTHY with construction dust, so visibility was less than 10 feet, and
  2. A lady in the next lane bumped the carefully aligned camera on her way to the ladder (which was in my lane), so the last 12 minutes of film are of the pool wall instead of my PR-breaking sets of 100 yard freestyle. [sigh]
