Last night was the hardest night so far....I had two pieces of pizza and a beer. The beer really didn't go down that easily as I probably haven't trained as well over the last few days as I needed to. Saturday night was a good training day, but unfortunatley, I haven't trained much this week until last night. The pizza you ask?....that was smooth...training really paid off there.
Last night was a nice casual swim and was really enjoyable and relaxing. I didn't try to 'bust ass' as it was only my 3rd time in the pool in...well...15 years. I just took it nice and easy and really practiced on my breathing and form. Felt alot more comfortable in the pool yesterday and had no doubt when I was finished that I could "smoke" the little kids that were having swimming lessons in the lane next to me.
Speaking of the little kids...."Please keep you little "floaties" in your swim area". I took one of those in the head and the first thing I though was that it was either a 'fart bubble' or a "Babe Ruth" bar.
I am still having a difficult time focusing on my position in the lane when sharing it with someone else. I tend to "sway" a little bit when I "over reach" and it causes me to move into the other lane. David didn't seem to mind though as he let me hold onto his "blue marble bag" long enough to get me to the edge of the pool.
It was a good workout though. Despite the phantom "fart bubbles" and the site of David in his blue speedo, I swam 500 meters and will do the same on Saturday but try and string 5-100 meters lengths together rather than the 50m that I did last night.
One question as I end...does anyone like "BLUE MOON"....(nope, not the beer either).
