Had a great swimming workout (1500 yards) in a lane by myself, finally. My long swim went 400 yards (with more left in the tank), which was the goal for December so swimming is looking great. Even did a 200 later in the workout. My fast swim at the end was practically a sprint. I'm thinking about trying flip turns again. Maybe Thursday's workout will be mainly turn work. I just know I'm going to be a dizzy mess, which I am definitely not looking forward to.
I've been playing with Bicycling.com's route mapping tool. I have some fun routes in store. Did you know it is theoretically possible to ride a bike from Bakersfield to Madera, CA in a day? Something to file away for another year.
