    Not too bad on the FR kick. Man, LCM FR kick with a board is just the pits. It's soooo good for leg strength, but it just sucks soooo much. I went on 2:00 to keep pace with Trip who was swimming them on the same interval. Numbers five through seven probably would have been a lot faster and closer to the other six times if I had more rest!

    CORE7:
    - statue of liberty sit ups (no weight)
    - single leg v-ups
    - full body crunch
    - crunch (:30) to sit-up (:30) (RD1), sit-up (:30) to crunch (:30) (RD2), crunch to sit-up alternating (RD3) w/ 6# mb
    - sit-up with arms raised above head
    - streamline hold (RD1/RD2), leg hold 6 inches off ground w/ 6# mb between legs (RD3)
    - flutter kicks (RD1), leg hold 6 inches off ground w/ 6# mb between legs (RD2/RD3)

    100 EZ

    300 assorted warm-up @ UALR during the 10 minute warm-up session before 400 started.

    400 FR - 4:35.93 (1:03.66/1:08.95/1:11.87/1:11.45) - Well I decided when I woke up this morning that I was going to throw the kitchen sink at everyone on my opening 150 and then see what happens. I knew I was going to hurt anyways the last 75 meters, and figured if I wanted to try and win the damn thing, I was going to have to go out hard and build a lead. Well it sort of worked. I was out 3 seconds ahead of the pack at the 200, but I paid somewhat for my aggressive opening 200 on the last 40 meters. All in all, the best swim of the weekend, hands down. I can't complain about dropping over 3 seconds from my lifetime best in this event at my age. Now for a few weeks of easy kicking to let my shoulder heal, and then on to SCY season!

Did not manage to keep the momentum going from the front 400. Ended up a few seconds off my best. A little disappointed I wasn't faster, because there were certainly times during the past 10 weeks of training that felt so good I would have expected this to be faster!

    In Nashville for the holiday weekend and to avoid being out of the water for four days I dropped in today (and also plan to drop in tomorrow) for the NAC Masters workout. I tweaked some things since I am tapering. Great workout though, great coach, and great pool.

    So I had meant to do the 50s at 800 pace for all four rounds. But I suppose I am starting to feel good as taper kicks in, because by RD3 I had somehow ended up going 400 pace, and faster than I went on the 12x50 set from 6/27! Honestly I would have preferred to be doing 100s for pacing the 800, but the set the club team was doing was 50s fast on 1:00, so I had to go with 50s so I wouldn't cause any confusion in my lane. A lot of those 34s also would have been 33s but for running into the back of the girl ahead of me. I guess an extra ten second gap combined with the fact that she was diving every 50 (and I was pushing) wasn't enough space to keep me from catching her :/
