    Comments:
    • I slept well last night, now I only feel moderately tired with some soreness from dryland work. Gradually the dryland program has been increased over the last several weeks to the point of about 75% of the work I was doing last May. I will maintain for now and include some additional recovery rest in preparation for moving up to the next dryland level.
    • Set 1 - Scull drills help me to keep the high elbow position in FR swimming. I timed the 4th 200 FR Swim at 2:11, and 3rd 500 at 5:46.
    • Set 2 - I wanted to swim controlled smooth freestyle with consistent EVF technique and steady rotation. Using the fins, I wanted to be under 1:00 for all the 100 swims. In the first 100 swim I missed a shallow end flip turn, which only occurs in the diving well pool for some reason, but not the LCM pool. There were no breaks in the entire set, as I went from kick to swim continuously just taking a moment to peek at the clock for the time check. Thinking it would only be moderately hard, I was gasping most of the way, particularly the first 25 kick after each strong 100 FR swim.
