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.

    My 1000 Splits: 2:25, 2:30, 2:30, 2:35, 2:25
    100 Timed Fly: 1:18

    I don't pull due (shoulder pain) so I left after the paddlers. They eventually caught me at the end of the third 200 so I spent 5 seconds letting them go by. Felt strong on the finish.

    Fly continues to elude me. The first 25 on the timed fly felt great. Smooth, fast... everything was clicking. Second 25 was tougher but still felt good. Last 50 felt like the wheels came off. I wasn't terribly tired but it felt like my timing was off an I was fighting myself.

    We usually swim in Huntsville on Saturday mornings but they were closed due to a dive competition. Instead, the Huntsville swimmers came out to Madison and we worked out a little later in the morning. Allways fun to swim with more people!

    Notes: Got a new suit (Speedo Aquablade jammer) last night. Tried it out today... it's fast! Ditched my drag suit after the warm-up because I just don't have the strength/technique for distance fly yet. Made it through the second 100 Fly but had to substitute the third 100 Fly with 100 Free before finishing the last 100 Fly. Last time we did this workout I don't think I made it through the 50 Fly/50 Free.

    The kick was tough... especially at first. I can make it doing breast stroke kick but my knee isn't quite 100% yet. Don't want to make it worse. Punishment for missing split on kick was to substitue 25 Fly kick with 25 Fly on the next 75. Excellent motivation but I still missed a couple.
