I met Steve H, Kelly, and Julia at the Y yesterday morning for a nasty swim. The plan was to do 60 x 50 yards. (From Jen Harrison, of course.) Gross.
The workout consisted of some “warm-up” intervals, and then multiple sets of 15 intervals as the main sets. And one of those sets of 15x50 was all about kicking. That meant fins. I’d never used fins before, so I was a little nervous. (But my kicking needs a LOT of work, so I knew it’d be good for me!)
I found the “best” fins the Y had to offer. This was it:
Torn in the back and cut off on the front. Just like me.
(Butt-crack in back and circumcision in front, FYI)
So in the end, I did 57 x 50 in the same time that the others did 60 x 50. Here’s “the gang” after our swim:
Steve H, Julia, me, and (most of) Kelly
Thanks for the swim, you 3!! And thanks (I think) for the workout Jen!
p.s. Here are 2 recent articles of mine:
- Have you heard about the Ride of a Lifetime cycle class coming up in March? It’s an indoor ride at the Target Center with 1,000 people! Pharmie and I are signed up to do it! Click here for more info.
- And you’ve probably heard all about it by now, but if you didn’t, check out the details from Lance Armstrong’s and Chris Lieto’s head-to-head Twitter Time Trial that went down last week. Thanks!
