Things were looking up – word on the street was that the new Asphalt Green would open in December, which would mean finally I could properly train for Gibraltar! And in the meantime, I still had the DCC on the weekends (even if it did feel like a jacuzzi). Then came Hurricane Sandy, the worst storm to hit NYC in a century, taking out both the DCC and my hopes for Asphalt Green. Is this a message from the gods? Or just from my parents, who really don’t want me swimming Gibraltar anyway…
So today I called 6 clubs in Manhattan trying to find a pool where I could get a day or a week pass. Many of them list a pool on their websites, but it turns out to be 18 yds or a sauna, so you have to do some research. I called Equinox to ask what the pool length was before making the trek up there, and the guy on the phone told me: I’m sorry, I can’t give that information over the phone. Huh??? When did pool dimensions become classified??
So I’m pool-less again. Anyone have any ideas for dryland training I can do at home (ie. while the kids are asleep and minimal equipment required)??
