    PM LCM @ UALR "Spring Splash Invitational" Day 1

    600 swim
    4x100 @ 1:50 k/sw/dr/bld
    odd: FR
    even: FL

    4x50 @ :50 D1-3, #4 EZ
    4x25 @ :35 V.S.
    200 EZ

    50 FL - 29.45 - I entered the 50 FR and decided to do it FL just because. Felt alright for 30 meters, then it started to go south. But that is to be expected, because I have not raced LCM FL in 6 years.

    1500 FR - 18:43.87 -
    1:08.72/1:13.44/1:13.83/1:14.97
    1:14.95/1:15.12/1:15.08/1:15.81
    1:16.43/1:16.32/1:16.25/1:16.36
    1:16.69/1:16.69/1:13.21
    - Swim felt great. I was 4 FL kicks off every wall (absolutely torched the club kids on either side of me off the walls). A best time by 18 seconds.

    Total: 3600

    it was raining when I woke up. by the time I left it had slowed and I thought maybe Sendero (outside) would be open, but that thought was dashed when I saw lightning a few times while driving out of the neighborhood. I didn't even bother going there, I just drove straight to the gym.
    the pool is only 2 lanes. there was 1 guy in when I got there, so I got in the other lane. he left, but another guy came almost right away. at some point he left (I was doing my 200s), and I moved over (I prefer that lane). a woman got in the other lane, and commented how she prefers the lane she was in (there are steps down to it, probably one reason I don't). anyway, someone else went in with her, and toward the end I had a guy sharing with me too.

    the swim felt fine. not really any more soreness from my swims last week. and 4800 is a decent quantity, probably a good place to stay at for a while until I figure out what swims I'll be doing next.
