I posted what was my “original set,” because my workout got cut short for a couple of reasons.

1. I got started late – I sat on the side of the pool longer than I normally do, trying to motivate myself. And I need to be out by 6:30 so I can get home, walk the dogs, eat breakfast, make lunch, and get myself to work by 9.

2. The YMCA has started a new class for individuals who want to do triathlons this summer, so until April 12, there is a triathlon training class from 6:30-7:10. I got moved in the middle of my set of 100s, so I cut that short, did a shorter set of 50s (so I was getting a piece of the whole workout in) and wrapped up shortly after 6:30.

Now – time to get ready for work! Running club later tonight, so assuming I make it tonight, today will be a double workout day!
