Very nice - we dallied for fifteen minutes of chat at the beginning, to hear a fuller report on Saturday's Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (here is Swimming World's coverage, courtesy of Wendy). Two TNYA swimmers were in the race, both women; only one of the two finished, as a number of swimmers were pulled from the course. It is truly an extraordinary endeavour - a 28.5-mile swim, a full counterclockwise circumnavigation of the island of Manhattan!
On a more mundane note:
Warmup: 200 free, 100 IM kick, 200 free, 100 IM drill, 200 free, 100 IM swim
2 x 100 free, drill-swim by 50 (finger-drag, catch-up)
6 x 50 free on 1:20, first four build by quarters, #5 easy, #6 all out
2 x 100 as 50 fly drill, 25 fly, 25 free
50 easy back
M. says to bring fins and use 'em for fly drill, it is a good idea; he also points out that I should be swimming further up in our lane, which is true, only it drives me crazy to have people on my feet all the time, so I have taken to swimming at the back! Our lane is a bit crowded recently, that's the truth...
