    "Beware the Ides of March"

    AM only SCY

    OK, nothing to beware of in today's practice. I have basically taken the week off from swimming. Did Crossfit on Tuesday but didn't bother recording it in the blog...nothing special there. Played water polo on Wednesday and then took Thursday off again. Which brings us to today:

    500 swim (150 FR/100 BK)
    400 kick w/ board + fins (100 FR/100 FL)

    10x100 @ 1:18 PINK (take your time on #1 and add :15 seconds...I held 1:03s across the board)
    8x75 @ 1:20 FR/FL/FR
    6x50 @ :50 2 RED/1 AE
    4x25 @ :40 FAST FR (0 breath)

    That 100 BR is about a second off my lifetime best, but I am happy with the swim. I haven't been able to train the way I wanted to this season (being busy coaching two teams, new job, "real life" as I like to call it, etc.). This time is what I would have liked to have been back in December at the Elite Pro-Am. It is really only in the past 4-5 weeks that I have felt like I am starting to train at my max level. Not enough time to get the most out of a full taper. I do think the swim set me up nicely for the 200 BR tomorrow.

    In Rockwall, TX (about 30 miles east of Dallas) for Sun Belt Conference Championships with the UALR women's team. Had time today between the wake-up swim and tonight's opening competition (200 medley/800 FR relays) to get in a short workout. Preparing to go out of town kept me out of the water Sunday through Tuesday, which was kind of a bummer with my taper period just starting. Planning to get a workout in every day I am down here, plus Sunday when I return to Little Rock, so that between today and Thursday next week when I leave for Sectionals, I should not miss a practice.

    We were packed 6 to a lane on the last set, which made doing fly really difficult. Was not happy at all with the times or how I felt, but I attribute half of it to being out of the water since Friday and half to the crowded lanes, making fly all but impossible to swim!
