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, Meredith, Roger, Aundrey, and various others. Back is improving but still sore. Doesn't seem to be a problem when swimming.

    600 Warm up

    200s until failure:
    150 IM Kick/50 IM - 3:15 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    100 IM Kick/100 IM - 3:10 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    50 IM Kick/150 IM - 3:05 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 IM - 3:00 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 IM - 2:55 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 IM - 2:50 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 IM - 2:45 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 IM - 2:40 / 50 Kick - 1:00 <- Didn't make it - switch to free
    200 Free - 2:35 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 Free - 2:30 / 50 Kick - 1:00
    200 Free - 2:25 / 1:00 Rest <- Drop the kick, make the free
    200 Free - 2:20 / 1:00 Rest
    200 Free - 2:15 <- Didn't make it - end set
    100 Easy
    This pretty much hurt. I was hoping I wouldn't make 2:45 on the IM but I came in at 2:40. Feels good to make it but I dreaded the 2:40 push off. Free wasn't too bad. I thought about paddles a couple times but didn't go there.

    4 rounds of:
    * 25 Free - :40 (1 breath)
    * 25 Free - :40 (no breath)
    * 2 x 25 Stroke - :20

    400 Timed Kick (Br - 6:10)

    12 x 50 Swim/Kick - 1:00

    100 Cool down
