Last Night I did my monday night intervals. I can barely make the last inverval. Still it is pretty satisfying. But then later I got a cold. Wifey and son picked it up this weekend. I'm not sure where. I've got to burn through it fast. Lake Willoughby on Saturday.

On saturday I got to repeat my super secret swim. Very nice.

Super Mini Meet

Who: Simon's Rock Pacemakers
What: The Super-Mini Meet
When: Tuesday Aug 6 2013
Where: Simon's Rock
Why: Well it was there
A pool meet in the summertime. A super mini meet. The Simon's Rock Pacemakers hosted a tuesday night meet. There were only about 7 events total (well 14 I guess mens and womens events) so the whole event went pretty fast. No PR's for me but I did go for the 100 yard I.M.

Big Pond

This wednesday's swim was at Big Pond. Possibly the most remote location for these social swims. But it is a great spot for a swim. There is a playground and a beach so I brought the whole family. Our little guy had a fantastic time on the playground shaped like a pirate ship. I had an excellent swim out around the small island.
There is iron or possibly tannic acid in the water. (tannic acid?) It makes everything look red.
Afterwards there was the traditional feast.
I think we are more than halfway down the list of scheduled wednesday night swims.
