    Got to the pool late tonight from getting my kids back home after their swimming lessons...so I missed out on the warmup.

    Yeah!! Because it was another one of those 500 (25 blah/25 blah/25 .../...)


    Warmup:
    I did do a 100 Free warmup as they were finishing and getting ready for the next set.


    20 x 50 Kick w/ fins (did SDK on back) @ :50 odds EZ, evens Fast
    (1100/1100)

    10 x 50 Free @ :50 (500 pace)
    could only hold :31/:32s...a few :33s
    I was still trying to get my arms moving at this point.

    200 EZ
    (1200/2300)


    Main Set:



    3 Rounds of 4 x 200s @ 5:00
    • Round 1 is IMs
    • went 2:32/2:30/2:24/2:25
    • -
    • Round 2 is Stroke (all the same - did backstroke)
    • went 2:30/2:30/2:28/2:29 - was quite happy with these
    • -
    • Round 3 is Free
    • went 2:12/2:13/2:10/2:04!!
    We had 4 and 5 per lane today, so this was a pretty intense set to do with so many people in the lanes...pretty much a wave pool. Had there been less people (waves) I probably would've done Fly for the 2nd round of 200s, but I was happy doing back today.
    Not a bad way to end the set with a 2:04 Free!
    (2400/4700)

    4 x 25 @ 1:00 One of each stroke FAST

    200 EZ and out
