    **So I am in Carbondale, IL with the UALR swim team for the Missouri Valley Conference Championships this week. I did this workout solo between the girls' workouts today. 28x anything best average is awful when swimming by yourself. I had no one there to time me so I am basing this off the pace clock, but my best guess is I held between 27.2-27.4. No 28s, and maybe one 26.HIGH.

    500 FR - 5:08.42 (57.88/1:01.81/1:02.45/1:03.10/1:03.18)
    Not a great swim. I was hoping to be under 5:00 on this swim. I think this week of workouts combined with a less than ideal "recovery day" (see AM practice above) and the fact that I forgot a competition suit (so I was sporting a heavy mesh drag suit) meant I was sluggish the whole race. I just couldn't get into 5th gear and get going.

    1000 assorted warm down (fin kick, pull, drill, etc.)
