Two Swims and a Meeting With the Harbor Master

Two swims again today, although the second one was VERY short.

I found a workout by Janet Evans on Active.com last night that I modified and swam at the pool this morning.  Here's what it looked like:

1,000 warm up

Repeat the following twice:
1 x 500
2 x 400 (pull)
3 x 300 (second 300 was kick)
4 x 200 (alternate 200 IM, 200 free)
5 x 100

1,000 cool down

I liked this workout a lot and will add it to my list of "go to" workouts for when I can't think of anything else to do.

Gordon and I had a meeting with Dave Shearer, the Harbor Master at the Great Salt Lake Marina, about the upcoming Great Salt Lake Open Water Swim on June 9.  I got to the marina early and had just enough time to get in a 20 minute swim.

The water was noticeably cooler than Tuesday, but I didn't take the temperature.  As I was getting in, a tourist came running down the ramp and asked if he could take my picture.  At least he asked, most of them just start snapping.  I only had 20 minutes before I had to get to the meeting so I just swam out of the marina, to the white buoy and then got out at Silver Sands Beach...as measly 920 yards.  Oh well, at least I got in!

I saw Goody as I was getting out and talked to him for a minute before he took off on his own swim.  At the restroom, I saw Chad (in his awesome new suit form Splish.com) and talked to him for a second before heading to Dave's office.

The meeting went well.  Dave had some great ideas and is really bending over backwards to help us out.  He has been super supportive of the event from the beginning.  There are just a few things left to button up and we should be ready to go.
