Last night I attended a Masters swim program for the first time….and the experience was humbling to say the least. I swim fairly well in the triathlon world, I swam growing up and this fall while I was in the off season I swam frequently with the high school
These girls are SMOKING fast. I usually swim alone and the pool ranges from 85-87 degrees. Last night was a breath of fresh air. I spent the majority of the workout in zone 7….praying that I did not get lapped and holding on for dear life.
It is entirely different to swim with a group of “swimmers” they swim huge volume during the week and they were unfazed by the mere 5000 yards we swam last night. I was toast. I do not know when the last time I swam that hard for that long.
I am going to try to get there once a week…it is not entirely feasible for me to swim with them three times per week but I did love the challenge of something new. So onward I go….swimmingly!
