Yes, just like a scene out of Caddyshack.<br><img alt="" src="http://daddytypes.com/archive/baby_ruth_pool.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
What would you do instead?<br><br>
I went home and stretched and foam rolled. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Ack - I hate it when that happens! I usually call it an 'unplanned rest' - you done good by actually doing something!

Yup.<br>
Rest.<br><br>
If I HAD to swim, I'd go to the other pool that I have access to.<br>
But, more likely...<br>
I'd take a bath and read a few pages and get to bed early.

depending what time of day it was--I would switch my workouts around, so that I could swim another day (i.e. go home and do my biking that was planned for the next day, and than swim the next day when I should have been biking)---but if it were late at night--I would have called it a day and taken a rest day?!---sorry about the "tainted" pool--groooos!

Do you have a backup pool? Or a trainer? Or do weights and conditioning instead? Or if you live where there's lots of snow, go for a long hike in the snow (when you have to climb through 30cm of uneven snow, it's a hike!)<br><br>
That's why I like training in the AM... if there's a technical problem I have the day to figure out alternative plans!

Well, swim practice was at 7:30 pm. I had done a spin class before swimming, so motivation was low. I was pumped to swim though.

That's nasty. I'd go to another pool. I have access to several within a ten minutes drive from my house. I'd probably not go back to the tainted one for weeks.

Me thinks Stu thinks pools are really cleaner than pools really are. <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif">
