I had to scramble to fit in my workout today - 4 x 150 yards on 1:55, leaving every 2:30. After incorrectly looking at the pool hours and a longer than expected lunch meeting, my only recourse was a mad dash to the new Choice Health and Fitness center right after work.
Even though i was at the 3 lane dedicated lap swim pool right when it opened at 5:30 pm, there were already five people in it. I had to share a lane with a guy wearing a striped pink speedo (yeah, the skimpy kind). This cramped my style and threw off my mental game so much that i missed my goal paces by a mile (coming in between 2:00 and 2:05) - at least thats my excuse. It was the first workout in a while where i didn't show improvement.
To make matters worse, the pink bathing suit pretty much schooled me, even though i was sprinting and he had a pull buoy between his legs. At least i hope that was a pull buoy.
The fact that all this happened the same day i wrote a post about what a bad ass I am is no coincidence. Karma is a bitch.
