Good Grief

I had probably my strangest swim ever today.

Forty-five degrees and thirty mile-an-hour winds. Well, if you were lucky--the pool is tucked behind a building and below a second-story deck, and the combination acts as a funnel for the wind. I'm sure the wind was closer to forty miles an hour on the pool deck.

Here's how crazy it was. I normally use about 19 strokes per length of the pool. Today, heading downwind, I was using 17. Going upwind, it took 21. That may not sound like much if you don't swim, but it's a huge difference.
