Flash Backs

I had flashbacks to high school this morning as I drove to my first time at the masters swim at Eisenhower pool.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, or how I would do.  When I got to the pool I was happy to recognize a few friendly faces.  I was assigned to a lane, ans started warming up. 

Our first set we did 7×75’s.  Fast, moderate, slow.  The 75’s were a great start.  I felt a little slow from yesterday, but not bad.  The main set was tough.  5×200 I think it was 2:55, 3:05, 3:00, 3:10, 2:55.   Then 7x 150’s I forget the times, but they were hard, and then 7×100’s 1:25, 1:40, 1:40, 1:25, 1:25, 1:40, 1:40. 

I hadn’t done a group swim  like this since high school.  It was an awesome workout.  There is something to be said for group exercise.  I know it’s not for everyone, but I easily would have been slacking during parts of that work out if I were swimming alone.  I will definitely be back for another workout.  The only thing that would have been better is if I could have went on the diving boards.  I wonder if I could still do a double?
