Heater Heating

As of 5 PM, heater is repaired at the Asheville School pool, and is doing the ONE job it has. Should be mid 70s tomorrow. I predict 76F.

Water temperature update at Asheville School

72°F and holding today. Monday you swam at 73°F. The part needed for repair on water heater arrives Thursday. If you want to bring your wetsuit, or neoprene top, do it.

We’ll have a steady moving practice with very little resting on Wednesday with at least 40 x 25s from a dive walk around. Fast short swim day mixed with mid-distance recovery.

Thanks to Marty M. for writing workouts last Wednesday and Friday, here are the last four:

Hardy Boys

Lake is 58° today, and these three guys did multiple loops. I, on the other hand fully immersed, swam half way to first buoy-turned around and got out. With no sun on my body 58°was too cold to me today. These guys are studs! All three did wear wetsuits and a neoprene cap seemed to make a big difference.

Expect water temps in mid to low 60s. Bring your wetsuit, warm clothing to get into and also a warm beverage of your choice. Bring a hat. Fleece is great!

Lake swim on!

Bring your wetsuits!

It’s beautiful out here and we should not miss Saturday morning, 7:30 AM. Bring your thermos with hot coffee or tea, bring your favorite breakfast item and enjoy a mid October swim in Biltmore Lake, what could be finer on Saturday morning.?

Water looks very clear, smells clean, water has dropped about 6 to 8° since last week. This digital thermometer measures the top 1 inch. I believe it’s about 1 to 2° warmer than this shows, but regardless, wetsuit worthy.
