Today I did not swim with masters because for the rest of this month as well as May, I need to focus on pacing myself and that is not what Masters is all about. They pool swimmers, they do interval training and there is often some occasional breaks to chat. I need to just swim at a channel pace and keep it going. When I mix in sprints, that would be good, but it also tires me and makes it difficult to get in the 10-12K yards I want per day. So I'll be doing my pool workouts on my own for the next couple of months, and after that I'll be spending more and more time in open water and hardly any time in the pool.
