    2500 today. Not a big day. Outdoor pool lately, which is different.

    I swim 2,000 meters in 39 minutes and 53 seconds. No stopping. This is a tough pace for me, but far away from an Olympic Record. Under 40 minutes for 2km is a great workout.

    I take it you're saying I suck?

    Well, if so, you'd be right. New Paltz, not that far away. Maybe I should do this.

    Suckage is very relative in swimming. I once did a mile in 24 minutes, and came in almost nine minutes after the race winner.

    I have no problem for 3k, 2k, 1k in a 50meter pool.
    Just don't like 25meter pool.

    I can live with a short course but I can't stand chlorinated pools.I have a salt water SC lap pool but I mainly swim open water.

    The only problem I have with short course is counting laps past 4000 yards. My longest pool swim ever was 10,000.

    Going to "swim camp" Tues and Wed. I'll let you know.

    Been swimming at the Ida Lee pool in Leesburg the last few days. Nice pool. Good number of hot girls.

    Where is the swim camp? I have never been to the Ida Lee pool, but have to file that away for future reference. The Anne Arundel County pool out in Annapolis is also great.

    So I went to New Paltz for two days for instruction in the TI method. It was fun and informative but all done in an Endless Pool. haven't been able to get to a full pool since, so I don't know how well this will work. it's also clear that I have a lot of practicing to do before I can consistently do this correctly.

    Anyway, on Monday I will test drive the method to the extent that I can and see if my times improve.

    It took me a while to get comfortable with the stroke and to learn to glide. TI is all about using energy efficiently. I don't know if you've seen this video, but this is what got me started.

    I'm trying to get back into shape after far too long off. I swam 1500 yards at lunchtime today in an indoor pool. It was a toasty 80 inside, 14 outside.
