    Warmup:
    600 (25 Back/25 V-sit scull/25 Free/25 V-sit scull)
    My v-sit stomach muscles were hurting today...this wasn't fun.
    (600/600)

    Now on to the fun...

    10 x 100 SDK on back w/ short fins @ 1:25 (held 1:19-1:21s)
    (1000/1600)

    10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:30 breathe every 3 (went 1:08s, desc'd down to 1:05s)
    (1000/2600)
    as we finished this set, John says "grab your fins and boards" Uh-oh...

    10 x 100 SDK on back w/ short fins @ 1:20!! (I made them, held 1:15-1:16s)
    very surprised that I was able to do this

    200 EZ
    (1200/3800)


    Main Set:

    2 Rounds of:
    • 400 IM (50 relaxed, 50 FAST)
    • 300 Free (50 relaxed, 50 FAST)
    • 200 IM (25 relaxed, 25 FAST)
    • 100 Free All FAST
    First Round through - interval is LIFO + :30 rest
    Second Round though - interval is LIFO + 1:00 rest

    400s went 5:10/5:05 (ran into lap traffic at the end of these)
    300s went 3:32/3:25 (a little lap traffic on 2nd one)
    200s went 2:32/2:25
    100s went 1:02/:59

    100 EZEZ
    (2100/5900)

    8 x 100 Free @ 1:20
    I chose to alternate odds Fly/evens Free
    Flys held 1:09s-1:11s
    Frees just cruised them around 1:10s, last Free was about 1:05

    (800/6700)

    300 EZ

    ---------------------------
    7000 Yards


    Most we've done in a 2 hour practice, and 2000 of these yards were high intense fin kicking as well. Definitely a kick in the ass practice. I'm off to soon...maybe.

    They're going to start doing morning practices as well on Tues/Thurs. mornings for an hour and a half, but (lucky for me) I have to be at work by 6:00am and can't make them. Dang... Though they would be good for me.
