    Today is birthday-day. Not for me though, but for two other swimmers on my team. One lady turned 50 today, and the other lady is 80! We're going to be throwing a big ice cream party at the coach's house tonight at 7:00pm if anyone wants to come!

    FREE TOO!!

    So, in honor of the 50 year old, who is very funny and enjoyable at 5:00 in the morning, I did the following set (while she did a 2500 continuous swim <-- what a nutball!!)


    My all in one workout (warmup/main set):

    50 x 50 @ :45
    • held :34-:36s throughout
    • every tenth 50 was Fly (was :33-34s on these)
    • cheated and did pull on #31-50 (not on the fly ones though)
    • while the set looks easy enough, it gets a little draining on your body. Especially swimming basically non-stop for 37 1/2 minutes on one set too. I'm not used to doing that very often either.
    • Originally I was going to do the last 25 of them on the :40 interval, but those plans changed too.
    10 x 50 Kick w/ board @ 1:00 (just made 'em)

    3000 Yards
