50-minute swim workout, Wednesday mid distance, 12-1-21

Another month, another swim. Of course, this month will probably be fewer swims than last month and less yardage. I think I'm okay with that. LOL November was a little crazy. For the main set, the even swims are the focus. (e.g., the second 100 is faster than the...

Hour swim workout, SCAQ Tuesday, 11-30-21

Coach Rada delivers again with another interesting, challenging, and fun workout. I've gotten in a rut with my own workouts. This was inspiring. Hopefully, I'll keep this interesting workout going tomorrow. Oh, how many yards have I swam the month of November? Well,...

Hour swim workout, Sunday SCAQ long course, 11-28-21

I usually enjoy long distance workouts. Not today. It was no fun. I was feeling slow, the water was cold, by the end of the workout, my knee was trying to lock and my calves were trying to cramp, and I just wasn't having a good time. Of course, I finished it, but . ....

45-minute swim workout, Saturday swim, 11-27-21

I woke up late on Saturday. Literally, 15 minutes before I was supposed to swim. It takes 15 minutes to get there. I was out the door in less than 10. But I hate being late. Anyway, I still managed a decent swim. Not as many yards as I had hoped, but it was something....

Hour swim workout, SCAQ Wednesday, 11-24-21

My plan was to swim alone today, but I had my swim times mixed up. I thought I'd signed up for noon when, in fact, I'd signed up for 9 a.m. (I was baking these lovely cookies at 9 a.m.) Luckily, SCAQ has a Wednesday noon workout at this pool. I signed up on the spot...

Hour swim workout, SCAQ Tuesday, 11-23-21

It's been a long time since I've swam one of Rada's workouts. I have to admit to missing them and her as a coach. I also got to swim with some friends (Rachel, April, and Michael). It's always a good day when that happens. All but the 75s were slower intervals than I...

50-minute swim workout, Monday long course IM day, 11-22-21

Long course is not nearly as much fun to swim on my own. Perhaps it's because I'm not used to the distance, but, also, I like the variety of short course. With long course, all of the workouts are denominations of 50, of course. Also, this was the first day without a...
