Recovery swim at Lifetime. The water quality there makes me appreciate the aquatic center!
400 swim
400 pull
400 swim
400 pull, no buoy
100 drill, distance per stroke down, 6-3-6 back. Manuel had me trying to time the kick with the arm during DPS last week and I wanted to give that a whirl with fins to see if that would help.

Last night I debated going to the pool for the optional recovery swim or skipping it.  Obviously I decided to go.  The main factors were (1) new goggles to adjust.  I didn't want to mess with them during masters. (2) Rain in the forecast so the morning walk was questionable at best.

Regarding the goggles, I've been using Aqua Sphere Kaiman Ladies (does "lady" equal size small?) but I wanted to try the Aqua Sphere K-180s so I got one of each.  Today I tried the K-180s.  My cheek bones feel a little bit puffy from pollen overload but I think that they might be good?  We'll see.

Breezy Z1-Z2 ride before the run. Both yesterday and today my eyes teared and my nose ran throughout the ride. Pollen overload.

Beaver Creek-Carpenter Firestation

Another windy spring day! I took Old 1 to Beaver Creek then continue past Martha's Chapel to the Lystra gas station and decided that I really need to get out of the headwind (I had been considering going up to Mt. Carmel Church), went back to Martha's Chapel and continue to Green Level but went the long way on Carpenter Firestation. Overall, I enjoyed the ride. Other riders were saying blah blah blah The Wind blah blah at Wilsonville so it wasn't just me!

Nice ride! Summer-like weather today meant that we had a big group so instead of just me and Mike B., it was a bigger crew. It was good to see Dayn and Big Tom. I finished with Frederike and Kevin J., Mike B. and two others.

Goggles acting up big time. I think that it's time to get a new pair.

After today's workout, Erin pulled me aside and said, "You know that you are one of the only people here who actually finishes the workouts?"

Waterford Green-Haddon Hall

And just like that, it's 35 degrees warmer than last time that I ran! Legs felt heavy and feet must be swollen since my shoes felt too tight. Still, it's nice to have some spring-like weather. However, legs did feel a bit heavy today.

Run tonight!

It's Tuesday and snow is not in the forecast!  For the past month, we've been in a pattern that we get snow/wintery mix every Tuesday so this is a good change! In fact, it's gonna be in the 70s today!  And Monica thought that my no-snow dance wouldn't work!
