Three Days, Three Workouts, Three Pools

June 21, 2016

Eighteen days into the month where I was supposedly going to really pick up the pace of "pool adds" and I was sitting at the same, singular addition of the great Berkeley Aquatic Club pool back on June 3rd.  A trip out to Virginia was what it took to nab a crescendo-ing trio of workouts across three pools in three days:


Saturday = A ~1,500 "US-SC" = Ultra-Short-Short-Course workout in the WFB Swim and Aqua-Jogging Complex ... otherwise known as my dad's backyard, 11 & 2/3rd yard pool. I dutifully did my standard warmup sets, marking every "100" as 10 lengths.  It might not have been much of a swim workout, but it was a good core workout!


Sunday = A 2,250 SCY workout at the exceptional Christiansburg Aquatic Center out in the wilds out southwestern Virginia.  I was a bit bummed that I wasn't able to be there when the pool was setup long course, but this amazing facility that serves the community, the state and the Virginia Tech swim team is a another great example of a true asset to the broader swimming community.


Monday = After talking with my nine-year old niece and learning that she had done a 3,600 yard morning workout with her USA Swimming team, I felt compelled to push myself a little further at a mid-day swim than I should have and managed a very solid 4,100 yards at the Brittingham-Midtown Community Pool in Newport News.


Three very different workouts in three very different pools, but each of them a treat.
