Back in the pool

wchevronwchevron Member, POTM
Got back in for the first time since February. Did a 300 warm up that felt more like an 800. Didn't feel too bad until about 3/4 of way through. Then I started to get gassed.

Swim at a local high school in the morning before work. Can't use the locker rooms so everyone is on the pool deck getting dressed afterwards. I ended up wrapping my towel around my waist and taking off my suit. I think some of the women just put their clothes over their wet suits. Not sure how this is going to work once winter hits.

Whatever aids we use, pull buoys, kick boards, etc have to be place in a bucket when we leave and they get cleaned afterwards. Wouldn't the chlorine in the pool kill any virus on the equipment? Covid sucks.

    Glad you are back in the pool! Our locker room is open, but limited to 4 people at a time. I’m usually all by myself.

    I'm definitely not looking forward to that first swim!

    Everyone should come visit my pool. Lunch time on Wednesdays — always rocking. ;)

    Round 2 today. Did a couple sets of 3x50 all out pace. Luckily, I can't remember what my times were last February to know how much slower I am now.

    I'm finally able to book lanes too. First swim this week and I felt like a loaf of pure shit after. So nice to be back in the water though!
