  1. Saturday 5/5/18

    AM LCM @ UALR "Spring Splash Day #2"

    400 swim
    6x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: kick/dr
    even: dr/bld
    3x100 @ 1:30 D1-3 (1:19, 1:16, 1:13)
    150 EZ

    100 FR - 1:02.43 (no splits, although someone told me I flipped at around :31, so I may have even split it)

    **At this point I jumped out and whisked my daughter off to a friend's birthday party. I rushed back to the meet 2 hours later with 5 minutes to spare before the 400**

    400 FR - 4:52.xx (no splits at time of writing, and I can't remember the exact time)

    Total: 1650

    I felt short on both races, but my kick felt great for the last 30 meters of the 100. The 400 is 4 seconds faster than I was at this meet last year (the last time I raced the 400). All in all, not bad considering no warm down after the 100 and no warm up before the 400!

  2. Workout 05/05/18: morning

    Before practice this morning I met up with my first boss for his monthly breakfast with former employees at a local diner. Afterwards I made it to the rec to share in the Cinco de Mayo celebration...

    Uno: 500 warmup (200 swim/100 kick/200 pull)
    Dos: 5 x (200 on 3:30, 100 on 2:00)
    Tres: 5 deep water bobs
    Quatro: 5 x 50 on 1:10 (1-4: Quarter's Strong, 5: FAST)
    Cinco: 5 x 25 (decrease stroke count each time) then 125 loosen and out
    (Rec/Masters/2500 yds/60 min)

    Another full pool with Greg, Jim, Sean, Rebecca, Kevin, and Beth. I did quarter's strong on the 200, holding 2:23s then using the 100s as recovery. I descended the 25s 13 -> 9. Now to enjoy a beautiful day in New England!
