Inside or Outside Swimming

I had a terrible nights sleep, I think im worried about my race on Sunday for some reason, I dont know why as I think im ready for it... well as ready as I can be.

As today is my swim day, I was thinking about going down to the lake where I will be racing on Sunday to get my final open water swim before the race. Its been raining most of the day and when I asked my wife if she wanted to go swimming tonight I had the response of "yes, but indoors" I obviously wasn't that fussed about going outside otherwise I would have said "no" but I was more than happy to agree so we went to the local pool.

As im on light training duties as im racing Sunday I decided to do a quick set of:

500 meters warm up and 3 x 250meters

Nothing to tiring but enough to give my muscles a workout. The lane was relatively quiet, same faces as the norm it was nice to get in there considering I haven't been to that pool for 3 weeks. The water was pretty cold so I was keen to do the set and get out, and I was even more eager to get out half way through the set after one of the gents in the lane told me someone had pooped in the pool earlier today... Lovely! I asked him how did he know and he said he saw then trying to chase it out with a fishing net! for the final 500 meters I kept my mouth firmly shut under the water.

Also a big plus, I got my bike back today all serviced and tailored to me, all I need to do now is clean it for race day and I'll be a happy man.
