I've done a lot of aerobic-paced open-water work lately, so I wanted to put in a better quality workout when I hit the water last night. I didn't have quite as much time as I might've liked, but I managed just under two miles in maybe forty-five minutes. That owes mostly to fast intervals rather than to any commitment to minimize rest breaks.

I've been watching HBO's True Blood for the past few weeks via Amazon Prime. I wouldn't bring it up, except that it's been cutting into my writing time in a serious way. But I can't shake it. Cajun Redneck Vampire Porn turns out to be surprisingly addictive once you get into it.
I just started Season 4. I'm sure I'll be back to a more regular schedule in a couple of weeks.

It's been kind of a slow week since last Saturday's long open water swim. I rode my commute a few times, but I got shut out by rain on Friday, and I only managed a little more than 2000 yards when I finally hit the pool Thursday evening. When I got into the water late this morning, I felt like I needed to catch up.
I still don't know that I necessarily had my best stuff, but my times were decent, and I managed to hang in there until I started feeling at least somewhat like myself in there. More and more, that's what it takes to have decent workouts.

Sally and I went for a long swim yesterday, me actually in the water and her following in her kayak. We started at the Boat Club about ten minutes before high tide with the idea that we'd swim with the current out from the club, through the mouth of the estuary, past Short Beach to Stratford Point, and on to Russian Beach.
