I've gone through the swim camp photos now and only found two of me that I'm willing to share out in public and all. There are many others of other people, of course, but it's up to them to share them. Or, you could come to the next camp and see for yourself. All photos from the camp are by Kaz Matsumoto. It seemed like every time I saw him, he was taking a photo, so I suspect he's edited down the raw footage. I shudder to think what might be on the memory chip of that camera if the ones of me with my mouth open looking dozy made the cut. I think the first one is from Friday night, and the second one could be any time Saturday.
The swim this morning can best be described as tired. It took quite a while to warm up and even then I never really felt strong or fast. Churned through the 1.25 hrs trying to think about stroke. Lots of dolphin kick and stroke drill.
At first I shared the lane with a much faster swimmer, but he moved over. Then for a long time another woman swimming about the same speed as me shared it and all was good. Then the lifeguard put this kid in the lane with us. Seriously, a kid of about 8 doing a wide slow breast stroke. Even though we'd already been doing circles, and were lined up ready to go again, the lifeguard told us we had to swim circles and make room. The kid was pretty good about letting us by, but sheesh, there were several other lanes where she would have fit in better.
Chatted with my buddy M. She found out she has ligament issues in her shoulder, which has modified her workout so she's mostly doing backstroke. A fast backstroke, I might add.
I am thinking that I really ought to get on my bike and get a spin workout in, but truth to tell, I'm just not feeling the bike love today. I really should do a good core workout. Maybe I'll bottle a wine kit instead.
