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

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'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.
