    Tonight was a great night for a workout (meaning I felt great), and another plus was that there weren't a lot of folks at practice either, so we were really spread out compared to normal. Our 3 lanes had 3, 2, and 4 swimmers in them. I was in the lane with 2 swimmers, so I had it made!! No one over age 13 was there either, besides this 35guy having fun.


    Warmup:

    500 Free DPS
    100 Fly Drill 1 right, 2 reg., 1 left
    100 Back Drill 3-8-3
    100 Breast Drill 1 pull, 2 kick (did w/ dolphin kick)
    100 Free "Popov" drill
    100 IM Sprint - again no breast kick for me
    had enough time so I did another 200 Free waiting for the others
    (1200/1200)

    10 x 100 SDK w/ short fins @ 1:25 (went 1:20-1:23s)
    (1000/2200)

    Again, split for the taper kids going to Sr. State meet. For us non-taper folks:
    Main Set:

    6 x 300 Free @ 5:15 Desc. 1-3
    • target HR/10 sec. is #1 24, #2 27, #3 30 (which is 180 BPM)
    • I managed to control myself and actually went easy on the first ones
    • First Round of 3: 3:40/3:27/3:18
    • Second Round of 3: 3:40/3:22/3:12
    200 EZ
    (2000/4200)

    500 Flutter Kick w/ board - not fast, but not "social kick" either. Tried to avoid cramping on my pushoffs...
    (500/4700)

    16 x 50 IM Order @ 1:15 (4 each stroke)
    • 1) Drill
    • 2) Build to fast
    • 3) Rev. Build from fast to relaxed/cruise
    • 4) FAST (went :29 Fly, :34 Back, N/A Breast, :26 Free)
    (800/5500)
