Week 8, Day 2 - 16 week full IM training

Bed before 10...woke at 4:40 AM.

Did all the 500s in 9 minutes or less. Was pretty happy about that. My lats were super tight during warmup (from rowing I guess), but loosened up by the time I started my main set.

Bought a book about open water swimming and started reading it last night. Need to get out to the lake a couple of times in the next few weeks and get some open water/wet suit swims in.
