  2. Saturday 5/26/18

    AM LCM Solo @ LRRC "6 on 5" (same practice from 4/13/18)

    400 swim (100 FR/100 BK)
    300 pull w/ SP + SNKL
    200 kick w/ BD (25 FR/25 BR)
    100 progressive scull w/ buoy + SNKL

    6x50 @ :50 D1-3, 4-6 (:39, :37+, :35, :39, :36, :34+)
    8x25 V.S.
    4 @ :40 FR kick w/ BD
    4 @ :30 FR swim
    100 EZ

    6x @ 5:00
    100 DIVE FAST
    100 EZ

    200 EZ kick w/ fins + BD

    Total: 3000

    Results:
    4/13/18 (SCY) - 57.0, 58.0, 57.8, 58.5, 58.7, 58.2
    5/26/18 (LCM) - 1:04, 1:04, 1:04+, 1:06, 1:06, 1:07

    I'm satisfied that I was within 1.5 seconds of what I went in the 100 FR at the Spring Splash Invitational on 5/5/18...on the first two! Easy to see where the piano started to fall on my back. Really tried to focus on staying long on the last 3 and I think that contributed to the drop off in times. It's also really hard trying to do a true lactate set all by yourself.
