First time this season. I’m woefully behind in my swim prep for the June 1 triathlon. The good news is I swam 500 yards this morning and it felt great to be in the pool. Now that the temps are warming up and Spring is really here, getting out of bed at 5:30 a.m. and driving to the pool for a 6 a.m. swim doesn’t seem so bad.
Although, I had to share a lane with another guy whose swim stroke seemed quite “wide.” Similar to Larry Craig’s wide stance, this guy had a wide stroke and kept bumping me when we passed each other in the lane.
One other problem. I wear Zoomers during part of my swim regimen and the fin cuts across the joint on both of my big toes. After 30 minutes in the water, the Zoomers had rubbed the skin of the big toe joint leaving both toes red and raw right on top. Ouch! I need to fix that.
