The title for this entry pretty much says it all. It shouldn't have been a brutal set, yet that's the way it turned out. Here's what we did:

300 Warm-Up
1 x 300 Kick on 6:00, every other 50 fast
2 x 400 Free on 6:30, broken at 200 for :05
2 x 200 Free on 3:10, broken at 100 for :05
4 x 100 Free on 1:45, broken at 50 for :05
1 x 300 Drill/Swim on 6:00, left arm only, right arm only, free by 25s
1 x 200 FAST Free on 4:00, broken at 50 for :10 (got 2:34)
1 x 300 Kick on 6:00, every other 50 fast
400 Cool-Down
Total Yards - 3400

I was actually (especially on the 400s) doing the second 200 at a negative split as we were supposed to. That got harder and harder the tireder I got. But... I still managed to do negative splitting (albeit by 1-2 seconds max).

I was not expecting much at all from the Broken 200 for time at the end of the workout. However, the 2:34 was pretty respectable for me. So... at least the workout ended on a good note.

Tomorrow being Thanksgiving, there is only one team workout. It's slated for 4600 yards in 90 minutes. Hopefully, my legs will feel better in the morning. I guess time will tell.

Enjoy your swims today and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
