Week 6- 11.13.07- 11.19.07

Theme of the week- Sad for our open waters.

As promised, I was on top of my workouts this week. I didn't follow the training calendar down to the last detail but I tried my best given my schedule last week and how I was feeling. I swam more than I've ever swam in weeks. Had a great track working in the morning with Hez where we pushed eachother to surprising time improvements by the lap during a marker set. What stayed with me the most this week was what I saw this morning. I did my normal run route from the Bay Club down to Fort Mason and as I approached Aquatic Park, I saw the affects of the oil spill that happened about 1.5 weeks ago. I'm usually greeted by a handful of swimmers during my run passing through that area but not this morning. This morning, I was greeted by fences and roped off areas. As I stood there..gazing out towards Alcatraz,..I actually felt very sad. These are our open's part of our lifestyle..and now it's fenced off. Hopefully, they'll have it cleaned up soon! I hope Mr. Seal and his friends are ok. I look forward to getting back in as I do love my bay swims!

Below is a pic from training this past Saturday. We're doing run drills here before our swim workout. I am on the left hand side in the Ironteam shirt, black pants and WF hat.
