Sure enough, that snow and rain yesterday stuck around all afternoon. By the time I got off work it was 32* and wet. As in, my bike ride was not going to happen. Instead I stayed home puttering, cooking and cleaning. Not as fun as riding my bike, but it was good to get chores done.
This morning’s swim was rough. I was exceptionally sore from yesterday’s lifting session, which surprised me because I felt like I lifted less than I normally do. Maybe that week or so away from the weight room had more of an affect than I thought.
- 300 swim/200 pull/100 kick warm-up
- 8×50 drill down, swim back
- 300 kick with fins
- 300 pull
- 300 swim
- 100 cool-down
Nothing crazy, just a typical 2K swim. The pool was extra crowded today, I think because the YMCA is doing renovations on the main exercise room and people who normally work out there decided to swim instead. But there were never 3 people in my lane, so I didn’t have to worry about circle-swimming. I remember when I swam at the YMCA in Ashland, I would always have to share the lanes with 2 or more people, many of whom were at totally different levels. No one could figure out how to choose a lane with a similar speed, so I was always stuck behind someone floating on their backs with a snorkel mask, and sometimes fast swimmers were stuck behind me. I used to dread going to the pool, and it’s no wonder why!
Here’s hoping the sun comes out this afternoon, and I can get back out on my bike!
How do you deal with sharing lanes? Do you get annoyed, or does it not bother you?
