Sunny workout: Steve Lester swims on his lunch hour Friday at Witter Pool, the only Spokane Parks aquatics center open for early season lap swimming. Other Spokane Parks and Recreation pools open with regular hours June 20. Most of the swimmers at Witter on Friday were triathletes gearing up for races, including the Ironman Coeur d’Alene Triathlon, but not Lester. “I’m just trying to get in shape,” he said of his one-mile workout. Witter Pool, open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., is heated to 82 degrees. More information about pool hours and costs is available at www.spokaneparks.org.
