My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

    Last day at the Marriott. Had to share the pool w/ Patrick and Ken this morning. Ken is an Ironman triathlete and Patrick was just getting into swimming a little. With my funky backwards "J" 50s and 75s, we all had to pay attention to where we were. But it worked out OK.


    600 Warm up

    10 x 50 Fly/Br/Free mix
    5 x 200 Pull
    10 x 100 - mix of hard fly/br, underwater and easy free

    no cool down today - just chatted with Patrick for a while.

    Swam at the Marriott pool again. Did things a little different today. The pool is actually shaped a bit more like a backwards "J". Today, I tried starting at the stairs at the deep end (3 1/2 feet), turning 90 degrees at the wall and then heading toward the stairs at the shallow end. I either flipped at about 12.5 yards and headed back for a 50 yard lap or managed the shallow end for a 75 yard lap. This worked better than yesterday but it was still awkward.


    600 Warm up

    10 x 50 - 12.5 underwater/12.5 hard free/12.5 easy free/12.5 underwater
    5 x 200 pull
    10 x 75 alternating br/fly
    1 x 150 Fly
    1 x 150 Br

    300 Cool down
