  1. Monday 10-21-13

    Loose intervals today. I was able to concentrate on my pacing or lack of pacing. Not bad at all , just a lot of freestyle.

    400 swim
    200 IM kick
    400 pull DPS
    8 x 25 @ coaches whistle
    --odds, SDK AFAP
    --evens, choice sprint

    500 cruise w/even pace @ 8:00
    2 x 250 strong @ 4:00
    4 x 25 sprint @ 45
    400 cruise @ 6:40
    2 x 200 strong @ 3:20
    4 x 25 sprint @ 45
    300 cruise @ 5:00??
    2 x 150 strong @ 2:30
    4 x 25 sprint @ 45

    100 EZ
    100 Off the blocks for time
    100 EZ

    4200

    I have been trying to do something off the blocks after each practice while I am tired. Nothing crazy, just a 50 or 100 to see how I am doing. Don't know if it will help much but we'll see.

    This was a fun one and I feel that I was able to hold it all together throughout. I guess I am like a lot of other people and have either been too busy to blog or my swimming has been hit or miss.

    Loved this one! It would have been brutal for me if they were all true 4IM's. My strokes all felt fairly good except for free. Very sloppy.

    I have made a few changes to my BK and BR and am anxious to see what I can do when I race next month in Charlotte.

    I will only be swimming that Sat while my wife goes shopping for the day up there. I signed up for the 50 BR, 2BK and the 2BR mostly just to see if my changes are positive. Should be a good time.
