Left for the pool a bit late today. Had to take some time to opine on the idiocy of Phelps. Not a good move though. I got kicked out of my lane by a high school team and had to move into the wall lane halfway through. My horror of wall lanes is of course well known, but this one had two ladders sticking out quite far. Definitely no fly in that lane!
My legs (and the rest of me actually) were really tired yesterday and today from all the starts. I guess Tall Paul is right that you shouldn't do them too close to meets.
8 x 100 @ 1:50, cruiser pace
alternate backstroke and backstroke kick
6 x (25 AFAP + 50 EZ)
2 fly/2 back/2 free
3 x (50 back AFAP w/fins + 200 EZ)
Went 26, 25.5, 25ish
These are the fastest 50 backs that I can recall doing in a solo practice. Think I went faster once at Mason with a real person timing me.
How'd I do, Ande?
I am being strongly *urged* to participate in a coed tri relay at the Savageman Triathlon next September. At least the water at Deep Creek is clean, although very very cold. This could be somewhat comical ... I don't have any excuse that it interferes with a meet though ... It might interfere with a rematch of Geek 9:27 I guess, although Geek, in abject fear, has apparently sworn off the 100 back for life. Julie O. competed in this Tri last year and demolished the field of OW chicks.
