Had an easy day today, so as not to be immediately fatigued for my meet.
700 variety swim, kick, drill
Short Aerobic Set:
5 x 100 backstoke @ 1:45
extra 30 seconds rest or so
5 x 100 backstroke @ 1:35
Practiced some backstroke starts. Did a couple with the arms going straight back. This definitely makes me go deeper. I know this is usually a good thing, but I'm not so sure it is for me.
1 x 50 backstroke AFAP from a push with fins (26)
The meet director graciously agreed to change my seed time in the 100 back, so that I could swim both events on Sunday with a reasonable amount of rest. (Where's the sandbag icon?) When I signed up for this event, I had planned on taking the 100 back out fast for a change and seeing what I had left. My last couple SCY 100 backs, I've been out in a mid to high 31. It has been suggested that this can be improved upon. So I'm hoping I don't chicken out on this plan. Haven't swum the event since September.
