    This morning, I decided to do the whole workout #3 (Quality 200 Pace) from Patrick's Distance/Pain Workout Forum
    I found it both to be a bit easy on parts, and others incredibly challenging. A good one though.

    Warmup:

    200 Free
    100 Kick w/ board
    200 Free Pull
    100 Free

    16 x 75 Free
    • 4 @ 1:10
    • 4 @ 1:00
    • 4 @ 1:10
    • 4 @ :50!! This time I only made two of them.
    2 x 150 Free Pull @ 1:55
    6 x 50 Free FAST @ 1:15 (went :28-:29s)
    2 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:35
    8 x 25 Free FAST @ :35 (:14-:15)
    4 x 50 Free EZ @ :45

    I found the sitting around on the wall resting on the 50s to be quite boring. I was recovered enough to go earlier, but stuck with the written set.
    Took a couple minutes

    2 x 150 IM no free @ 2:30 (1:57, 1:56)
    These would probably have been around 2:28s for 200 IMs

    6 x 50 Active Recovery @ :35, :40,....:60

    2 x 100 IM @ 2:00 (1:10, 1:07)
    I sprinted the 2nd one.

    4 x 50 @ :35, :40, :45, :50

    Added a little more of my own:

    10 x 50 Free @ :55
    Odds: Free Pull w/ kickboard between thighs (looks like a shark)
    Evens: Kick w/ board

    ----------------------
    4500 Yards

    ================================

    Went to the dentist for a 2nd painful session over the past two days. Then afterward went to the pool for a little more. It is very awkward trying to breathe in the pool with a numb mouth. I don't recommend it!

    Warmup:
    200 Free
    100 Kick w/ board
    200 Free Pull

    10 x 50 Kick w/ board @ 1:00
