I got wet today

Meaning I actually got back in the pool and did laps for the first time in a month, in the colder (82*F) of the two indoor pools at our Y.

I still was coughing slightly, so I kept it to only 1500 yards, since I think probably chlorine gas doesn't do one's lungs any favors.

But I was still encouraged to do one set of 500 yards at 10:35. Well, it was with the pull-buoy, but still, that's a pretty decent pace for me. One I'd like to see in one of my races this year with wetsuit helping float my legs into something approaching normal fore-aft balance instead of relying on a piece of styrofoam to do the job.

Good on you for getting back out there and taking the plunge!

I really am glad you are on the mend. You'll be right as rain in no time at this rate.

Nice swim! Way to hit the pool again!

Only 1500 yards! I'm going to tri and swim more consistently. Today I swam about 300 yards (about six laps in a local community college 25-yard-length pool) and that gave me a solid workout. 1,500 yards seems like an incredibly long distance to me, haha! Good for you!
