4x3/4 length breast sprint on :40
6x100 on 2:00

I was out of it today and didn't catch all my times, but I was coming in right around 1:35 on these.
12x50 free on 1:00 - br under water cycle off the start - I did these in just around :50.
100 easy warmdown
Notes: My fly still feels off. At one point I remembered that if I pause briefly at the end of my recovery, my hips have the chance to come up and my kick is significantly stronger. But my breathing was still off. Oh well. That new interpretation of the breast stroke dolphin kick is challenging to get the hang of. After a few tries, I quit kicking twice and started to get the hang of it. We'll see how it works when I do a longer IM workout tomorrow morning.
