First one in the pool this season at the Roper YMCA
1.5 mile lake swim. Don’t drop ya phone taking a selfie.
So I decided to start my day out with an open water swim. I had a wonderful swim, a perfect morning for a sunrise swim. At the last minute I decided to do two crossings because the water felt so good. The water was as clear as glass. It was very nice seeing the sunrising to my left as I swam with each stroke.
After my swim workout, I decided to go to my local Roper YMCA and do the sports conditioning class. The class is only a half an hour, but it is a real ball buster. Consisting of mostly women, it is the hardest class I have taken in a while. This high intensity class is bulit around jump squats, burpees, lunges, wind sprints and pushups. I was dizzy and very light headed I was working so hard trying to keep my senses about me.
After recovering from this high intensity workout, I noticed that the pool was re-opening for the first time since the winter. Although I had already swum today, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to be the first to jump in the pool this year. I made a pact with myself that if I was the first memeber in the pool, I would do a short swim session. When I asked Trinidad (the lifeguard) if anyone had been in the pool today he said “no, I would be the first!” I ran back into the locker room, through on my wet swim trunks from this morning and swam again. I worked mainly on swim drills, but I ended up swimming about 600 yards of freestyle too. All in all a good workout day. This is no way was a day for fooling around. LOL
