Pretty good day, even though I felt like I was swimming slowly. Open water swimming against the current helps. I do have some knee pain in my right leg and it is definitely from pushing off the wall. It's not inside the joint, but rather the area/tendons around the joint. I will stretch it out and see if I can run today, but I plan to do more open water swimming and start DYN/DNF soon so it will go away.

Pool workout today (short rubber fins, speedo, NO dive skin)

Warmup 400m
10*25u with 10/9/8/7/6/5/4/4/4 breaths in between (250u)
10*25uf in 12:30 (1:15/lap) (500/250u)
2*50u (100u) @ 3:00
10*25uf DNF in 15:40 (1:34/lap) (500/250u) -- 5 breaths at the wall

Total - 1750/850u

First DYN/DNF workout of the season! Overall feeling pretty good, but shoulders feel achy and weak on DNF. I'll have to get in the weight room some more. The only time I felt miserable was during the last 2 reps on the first exercise (I felt like the CO2 was making my entire body cramp). I'll be doing this type of workout 2x a week and then swimming 2x a week.
