    500 swim every 4th 25 scull w/ SNKL

    6x50 @ :10 rest
    3 - D1-3 FR
    3 - FL drill/swim
    25 DIVE FAST
    75 EZ

    200 warm-up

    200 FL - 2:03.22 (26.43/30.13/32.35/34.31) - Well that is the best opening 100 I have ever had for a 200 fly, both in feel and time. However, the less than 12 hour turnaround from my 1650 really came back to bite me on the last 60 yards. I haven't pushed my limits nearly as much as I need to training butterfly, but will be doing a lot more going forward. Not unhappy with the swim, because it's great that I am going as fast as I was 5 years ago in this event, and my lifetime best is only 2:02. It is just frustrating that I was 1:28.9 at the 150 and couldn't come home any faster.

    SHOUT OUT: Doug Martin, for counting for me (who need's lap counter poles anyways!), and Tom Genz (the aquatic director formerly known as coach formerly known as swimmer, got 8th at Olympic Trials Tom Genz).

    So yeah, I was feeling great until about the 800. I felt the shift, and the wheels start to loosen on the bus. The splits just confirm what I felt. I haven't swam that event in over 20 years, and that was certainly my first ever 1650 that I voluntarily entered. My goal time in April is 16:49. The swim gives me hope, but I have A LOT of work still to do!

    Felt very labored on my 100s today. Could not get going on my pace until I actually got to the faster intervals. Not entirely sure what to make of that. Anyways, only the first day of taper so can't expect to feel fantastic already!

    SHOUT OUT: Trip's poor excuse for trash talk. Stay focused on what is going between YOUR two lane ropes, bro.

    **TOFU - “Three Over Fourth Under,” this was an underwater hockey training set my UW-H team used to do. The full set was 10x100 on a descending interval, 75 swim/25 UW kick. I don’t remember the send offs anymore, but I know that the last 1-2 were on 1:00/:58 or something speedy like that. At the time it was a benchmark for making the junior/senior national squad. I tried out my junior year for the Jr. Nats team. I was the only one to complete the set. However my poor puck handling skills at the time kept me off the team. To use a football analogy, I basically had the fastest 40, the most bench press, and the highest vertical, but I couldn’t run clean routes and catch a football. I had tried out at an early point in my UW-H playing career, and within 6 months of the tryouts, I had some of the best puck skills on my club team...just a day late and s dollar short at tryouts. Too bad too. The Jr. Nats team went on to win gold in Calgary that year :/
