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.

    Swam /w Ray, Charlie and Dave. What was a minor irritation yesterday is now a full blown injury. I think I've sprained my left pectoral muscle. After 50 yards of warm up, I knew I was just making things worse so I put on fins and did my best to keep up.


    500 Warm up

    3 x 500 kick w/ fins - 7:30
    200 Easy
    This was mostly learning how to use a board, streamline and turn with the least amount of pain. Deep breaths are enough to induce pain so I had to limit sdks. That kind of stinks because it is something I could use some work on. I ended up alternating between fly kick, flutter kick, fly kick on back and back kick. With the fins, I was able to make the intervals ok.

    5 x 300 Kick w/ fins - 4:30
    200 Easy
    By this time, I was more comfortable with turns. Limited this set to flutter kick and back kick since the fly was producing some discomfort.

    6 x 150 Kick w/ fins - 2:30
    Alternated in some fly kick and did the last 150 Br.

    No cool down - time ran out
