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/ Roger, Dave, Dave, Dave, Keith, Ray, Danny and Meredith. Wore my Yingfa jammer today so I was a little faster. Still didn't make the challenge set but I'm not losing time either.

    400 IM Timed (5:33)
    At this point, Dave C was the only one still around. We decided to race a timed 400... his backstroke vs. my IM. I figured a 5:40 to 5:45 would be realistic this late into practice. He was expecting a 5:50. At 100 yards, we were pretty much even. That was a bad sign for me because I was about to go into a serious deficit on the backstroke. And a serious deficit it was. About 15 yards. I pulled back to 10 or 12 yards behind on the breaststroke and then set off to chase him down w/ free. Pretty close at the end but winning wasn't as big a deal as the time... 5:33. Neither of us were expecting that.

    200 Cool down

    (5300 Total)
