Mixing it up this year

I really like my toys and will continue to use them. The mix will be both distance and sprints. My focus for this year is to maintain my 200 fly time.

    It is amazing how one kick can hurt so bad and the same movement can eventually loosen you up. This happened to me this morning.

    During the main set I was getting started with my 50 free and dolphin kicked off the wall...then OH the Pain. My 50 free became 50 1 arm fly drill pushing thru the pain to get loose. I was going to kick free but decided I needed dolphin kick more at that point. I actually did an extra 50 kick just to loosen up more.
