Master Swim is at 6:30 am. And I am not a morning person. So when the alarm went off at 5:30, I almost slammed it down, until I remembered that I had packed everything the night before.
I found a spot in the slowest lane, me and two other women. Having not swam in 2 months, I was apprehensive. The first 200 meters were tough; I wanted to just die about 150 meters into the warm-up. But then, somehow, it all came back. I think I swam about 1600 meters in an hour.
I was halfway through any given set, and I'd look over and the other lane swimmers were done, eagerly standing at the edge of the pool ready to do the next set. And here I'd have another 100 meters or so to swim.
I like our coach. She has lots of good feedback, even for us in the slow lane. For me, I guess I keep my arms straight under the water. I'll work on fixing that.
Tri training has begun.... Hyannis Sprint in June, here I come!
