  1. Workout 01/05/19: morning

    by , January 5th, 2019 at 10:44 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    First practice of the new year for my Masters group and we did our annual 50 x 50s on :60.

    I did...
    400 warm-up
    :60 swims as:
    5 x (4 x75, then 3 pairs of 50s: kick, back, free)
    Extra 50 at the end.
    [Masters/Rec/3450 yds/60 min]

    Everybody looks forward to this workout each January, and my game plan was to up the yardage a little bit with the 75 and I was able to make it free to them throughout the set. As in years past, I set up my phone in a portable speaker so that we had some tunes blasting while waiting on the wall, this year I swam with Jim, Greg, Libby, Sean, Rebecca and Melissa.
