SCY w/Speedo @ Oak Marr:

Warm up:

700 variety

6 x 25 shooters w/fins

Transition:

10 x 50 @ 1:00
odds = swim
evens = kick w/speed bursts

10 squat jumps off bottom of pool

LT Death Set:

8 x 100 @ 2:00, best average.

Did backstroke kick w/fins
(Shoulders sore from weights, so thought I'd kick. And I haven't done a super hard kick set in awhile.)

Went: 58, 57, 57, 57, 58, 58, 59, 58

These were rough and painful right from the get go. Being somewhat breathing impaired, I couldn't stay under as much as I wanted. So my SDK count per 25 was 10-12, 7, 6, 4-5. The last 25 sucked on each 100 and I kept expecting Pete to track me down like he often does. I suppose, though, that it's relatively harder to keep the SDK count high when you're doing the 100s @ 2:00. There was not a lot of chit chatting on the wall between 100s. Thankfully, we made up for that in the hot tub later.

250 EZ or so

Total: 2400

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Commentary:

As Pete said, this set is dastardly. After 4, I was ready to get out. That's when it helps to have a training partner! I feel pretty blasted. I know I should do a yoga-stretch for 30 minutes. If I somehow manage to accomplish this feat -- for it seems like a feat at the moment -- I will update my blog.

84 degree pool temps are way too hot for this set. It would be better tolerated at Mason, I think.

Have an appt. to get my foot jabbed on Oct. 5. http://www.treatingpain.com/diagnosi...ch-plasma.html.

    I did not say that at all, reread what I said. In fact, I have been impressed with your speedy bursts lately.

    Looks like I have a wedding to attend so I won't be going to the Sprint Classic
    It was and I feel brutalized.

    That's a bummer that you'll miss the Sprint Classic.

    You guys are cranky.

    I've been impressed with Q's speedy bursts and your intense aerobicism.

    I need to avoid q's crankiness lately as I've been in a good swimming mood.

    I think he got hold of some of Cantador's bad meat.

    You should be with all those endorphins you're generating!
