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 with Dave, Dave, Keith, Ray and John. Scrimmaged with my U16 soccer team last night. One of my bigger players collided with me. Both of us were going for the ball and neither saw the other one. His shoulder hit square into my chest and I narrowly avoided splitting my lip on his head. My biggest concern was whether or not I had hurt him. Once I realized he was ok, I started thinking I might not be doing so well. Fortunately, I just had the breath knocked out of me and after a couple minutes I shook it off. So, I showed up at practice a little sore this morning and didn't expect to do a whole lot. Turned out to be a pretty good day.


    600 Warm up

    4 x 125 - 1:45 (Made 1:30s)
    100 Easy

    500 Free - 7:30 Dave pushed me pretty hard on this one. Made 6:05 which was a good bit faster than I though I was going.
    2 x 300 Free - 4:30 (3:35, 3:31) Again, Dave was pushing me pretty hard and I was surprised to be closing on the 1:10 pace with a drag suit on.
    100 Easy

    3 x 100 Stroke - 1:45 IM Order, backed off the pace and recovered.
    100 Easy

    Did another round of the above but I pulled out the paddles...
    500 Pull - 7:30 (5:35) Apparently, I was good and warmed up at this point and ready to knock out 100s on a 1:07 pace. First time I've been under 6:00 on a 500 in a while.
    2 x 300 Pull - 4:30 (3:25, 3:17)
    100 Easy

    3 x 100 Stroke - 1:45 IM Order

    250 Kick
