Anyone interested in meeting up for swims at the Takoma Rec Center. It's a fantastic pool, lots of lanes and equipment - boards, pull bouys. Getting lanes is pretty easy before 6 pm and weekend mornings.
DC residents = free
Non DC res = $5
sounds promising....what's the address of the pool?
300 Van Buren - it's between 4th and 5th I believe - about 4 blocks from Takoma Park Metro Station
Hours: 6-9 M-F, 9-5 S and S.
Lots of lanes - that sounded silly, but it's an Olympic sized pool that they cut into 3 sections width wise. It's then 25 yards or meters across and I believe there are usually 6 lanes or more open for open swim. 1 section is open for free swim, 1 section has lanes for lap swimming and the final section is usually team swimming, but open for laps on weekends I believe.
There's also a new track next to the center - HS track - that is open for use. Plenty of parking.
I swim there every Tuesday and would love to swim with others.
I've been swimming at the Takoma pool as well... company would be great. What days and times are people thinking?
I was planning on swimming Tuesday night. 6:00-ish?
Swim for half hour/45 minutes and then go for a little run around the track, weather permiting. Just a quick swim - 1000-1500. I plan on going to the Wed CU swim for the longer workout.
I usually have a 2 pc racing suit an either a hot pink or yellow cap on.
