Here's what a typical training at the pool on Wednesday night looks like. After struggling to get in a good workout at LA Fitness over the first couple of months of training I have now resorted to driving all the way up to Mountain View Aquatic Center. It takes me about an hour but pays off in getting a lane to myself most of the time and a nice facility.
|Getting ready to get in the pool. Love my fins -|
I think that's what is improving my kick.
|And the swimming begins - that right arm is too low in the water.|
|Pool side - littered with my pool toys including pull buoy and fins.|
|Heading off low blood sugar by taking in an energy gel.|
|And I'm off - again.|
|2750 yards later - done. Finishing is my favorite part of a swim workout!|
