600 warm up. As the shoulder was still a touch twingey, I took Tall Paul's advice and had a big kick day.

8 x 100 kick on 1:50 (flutter or dolphin kick on back, no fins no board) (held between 1:30-1:35)
50 EZ
4 x 100 backstroke with fins on 2:00, negative split (went 1:03-1:04.5)
50 EZ
8 x 50 dolphin kick on back with MF on 1:00, #4 and #8 AFAP (Went :24 on #4, was going so fast, I crashed into the wall with my MF. Went :23.5 on #8. It's hard to do a fast flip turn with the MF)
50 EZ
4 x 100 back pace on 1:40 with fins (held 1:07-1:08.5)
50 EZ
8 x 100 flutter kick on back on 1:50 (no fins, no board, but really got bored!)
50 EZ

10 x 25 UW fly spin drill

Total: 3550

Skipped warm down, sat in hot tub. Traded MF stories with a mom who son swims in college. He has several MFs. During one workout, he got sliced by a teammate's MF in the hip/ab area and had to have stitches. Ouch!)

    The power of fiberglass!

    It was the turn I crashed on. Came up at 20 meters or so and couldn't judge it in time.

    I'll look forward to seeing your times with the MF!

    Is that what they're made out of (fiberglass)?
    I thought they were rubber? No wonder they're dangerous!

    I can hold a good pace with fins.
    But the MF looks like a different thing altogether.

    Thanks for posting your times.

    I'm not entirely sure if it's fiberglass, but it's a very stiff blade! Not like regular fins at all.

    how fast can you kick a 100, no fins,
    with a board and with out?

    Haven't done an all out 100 kick for time in awhile, Ande. On the 16 x 100s on the 1:50 from this workout, I was holding between 1:30-1:35 with no board.

    Didn't do as much kicking as usual this summer. Going to ramp it up some more this fall-winter though, especially the SDK work.
