Dancin’ in the Moonlight

I just wanted to update everyone on my 3 AM masters swim.  It was fabulous.  The air was cold, the moon was full and  the pool was very warm.  44 people showed up to swim and we had 2 coaches on deck.   We took a picture which I will hopefully be able to share with you when someone sends it out.  Everyone felt deliciously maniacal for getting up at that hour of the morning and showing up to swim.  The coaches provided coffee and donuts (I ate 2 glazed donut holes) afterward.

The workout went like this.  You had to swim 6 x the distance where the repeats looked like this:

1 – kick swim by 25 (that means you kick for 25 yards then swim 25 yards)

2 –  swim free 25 and non-free 25

3- choice (we repeated round 2)

4,5,6 swim the distance descending your time each one.

So we did 6×150, 6×125, 6×100, 6×75 = 2550 plus I did a warm up of swim 300, pull 200, kick 100 for a total of 3200 3300 yards.

When I got home I surfed Facecrack, read my email, ate some more and then got back in bed where I slept for 4 hours. So mucy for being an early riser.

As days go I’d say that was pretty good if not a twee lazy.  Hopefully next year I’ll be a working woman and will only be able to take a quick nap before getting ready to go to work.

    Swimming at 3AM? Sounds like a great time, especially when you get to go home and sleep afterwards 🙂 My little trek into the world of peri whatever menopause has me up at 3 most nights- I think a swim would be a lovely way to get back to sleep 🙂
