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/ Dave, Dave, Dave, Roger, Ray and Danny. Pool theft has suddenly become a big issue. I'm not talking about people going through your bag to steal your wallet. I'm talking grand theft kickboard. Dave took some extra security measures today to help with the problem:


    600 Warm up

    6 x 200 IM - 3:20 (50 swim/150 kick)
    50 Easy
    Made these which is kind of a shock. My kick seems to be improving a lot.

    Finished up our challenge set that we skipped for the last couple weeks:
    6 x 50 - :50
    2:00 Rest
    4 x 50 free, :10s rest between each 50.
    50 Easy
    Made 2:02. I think I'm set for a personal best (2:04 was my previous best meet time) but 2:00 is going to be tough unless I find a little more speed in the next month or two.

    25 Easy
    1200 Relay - 12:00
    Two teams of three. Each of us did 8 50s from a dive. I think we made 11:52.
    75 Easy

    8 Rounds of:
    * 25 Kick, face in water, no breath down/25 easy kick back - 1:00
    * 50 Easy pull - 1:00
    50 Easy
    This was new to me. I wasn't sure if I could make it but I was fine. Breaststroke kick was easiest. Fly kick hurt but flutter kick was the toughest.

    200 IM Timed (2:36) Went to hard on the fly and had nothing left for the back half of the IM.

    300 Cool down
