  1. Mon and Tuesday

    Mon. 10-22-12

    Only five of us at practice and one of them wasn't feeling well and left early. I must have missed the memo on whatever is going on around town here since no one has been showing up. The up side is plenty of feedback from coach.

    The 4 x 250 might be my new favorite short set. I had time to talk with coach and push different portions a little more to see how it affected my 100 free time. I went 1:19, 1:17, 1:16, 1:15 on those which is would be a good 4IM free split for me. Yes I know a 250 is not the same as a 400, but it helped out my confidence.

    Tuesday 10-23-12

    Very limited time in the a.m. I live less then 10 min. away from the fitness center so getting in for 30-45 minutes is justifiable to me if I have a goal. Todays goal was to stretch out a little and work my back to breast turns. I think I got it.

    4 x 100 @ 1:30 w/buoy
    2 x 200 @ 3:00 kick w/fins
    4 x 100 @ r/15ish drill, IM order

    About 15 min of turn work

    100 DPS Fly
    -Cruised this just to see how it felt. Fly is not my thing but I didn't feel like I was sinking/floundering.

    100 EZ

    1500 scy
