5k postal

This morning I met Josh at Alta Canyon Rec Center to swim my 5k postal. I had called a few days before to find out what time they opened so we could be there right at that time. We got there at 5:20 so I could be in the water right at 5:30. the guy checking us in said we could not get into the water until 6. I explained that I had called and was told 5:30 and he just came back with 6. we got out to the pool area and were the first ones there, a couple of girls were walking around and I asked if they were lifeguards. They said yes and I asked if we could start and she said we could of started eariler if we wanted to. she also explained that the swim team would be coming at 6 so we should move from the middles lanes to the edge. we moved over and we started. I was feeling kind of sluggish I felt like I was struggling to get thru the water. I am still sore from my swims last weekend at it felt like about 1000 meters to get loosened up. after I got loose I felt like I was keeping a good pace but was fighting cramping in my feet and my calfs. the pool water was really warm and felt like I was swimming in a hot tub. with all the Ice baths and cold water training I have been doing it felt counter productive swimming. I managed to push thru and finish in 1:33 5k Postal done!
