I posted on Facebook the other day that I was kicked by a slower swimmer while at a free swim at my local pool. It seems like everyone has some type of story of other mishaps while at public swim so I thought I would start creating a code of ethic for the local open lane swim.
- Fill all lanes first.
- If lanes marked 'fast, med, slow' this is meant in relation to other swimmers in the pool, not how fast you think you are.
- Breast Strokers try to stay in a lane with other people doing breast stroke.
- Pay attention to what others are doing in the lane, if it looks like the faster swimmer is about to start don't go just before them.
- It does not matter how long you have swam at the pool, you do not own that lane.
- Wear proper swim attire.
- Be willing to adjust workout based off numbers in the lane and being courteous to others.
On another note I had a great bike ride today with Rich Pady we did 118km at 36km/h average on a route we felt simulated the Muskoka course. I felt strong the entire way. I also wore my CEP compression sleeves for the first time riding, it will be something I will continue to experiment with leading into Muskoka.
Ok, that's all for now.
