2006-06-29 Swim

Masters swimming is at the long-course (outdoor) pool south of me until further notice. So I sucked it up and made the drive. This was the first time I've been in the pool in weeks, the first time I've been swimming outdoors since last (August, was it?), and only the 3rd or 4th time in my life I was swimming long-course. Weird pool. Eight feet deep at one end, TWO feet deep at the other. And some of the folks were doing flipturns in the two foot end :).

Form was horrible, fitness was horrible, pool was filthy, and I left my pull buoy there. But I did manage to find a whole nickel in the shallow end.

(Which reminds me... I lost one of my favorite water bottles on today's bike ride. Two workouts, two lost pieces of gear. go figure.)
