So I returned to the Truckee Pool.
1- It served the purpose (3rd time since I arrived) for a solid swim
2- it is NOT the Encinitas Y nor Alga Norte nor any pool I have swum in lately. 6 lanes indoor.
3- I hit up Masters on Friday and the coach was in the water and we ALL ( 5 of us) went on the same interval. So the main set base on base + 25 for me, which um never happens. But I was respectful and swam along, Finished up in my own lane. This was not a Hux kinda workout, just sayin.
4- Pool temp 83 degrees. Good for heat training? But since the lake is 60 and the air temp is lower, not sure the benefit.
5- No shoes on deck. Bizarre- you go barefoot or they have handy shoe covers as you enter
6- $5 drop in fee. Thankfully it is reasonable.
7- Pool was full today.. lots of triathletes with the same idea. We managed 3 to a lane, different paces and different workouts.
8- Locals are incredibly friendly and apologetic for fires - again. One nice lady offered up, "how do you feel about the snow forecast on Thursday?" Well I cannot be surprised, it snowed 2 years ago.
It's all good. Windy today but the rain last night cleared the air at least in Olympic Valley and it nice and clear. Now I have a cool new app to track it AirQuality
