Today's workout seemed good at the time, but in retrospect, I didn't push hard enough.

Team practice SCY, swam with Marge
Warm up
- 300 free
- 200 kick
- 300 free
Transition
- 2x100 DPS
Main Set
- 300 pull on 4:00 (3:30)
- 3x100 on 1:20 (1:10s)
- 300 swim on 4:00 (3:42)
- 3x100 on 1:20 (1:11s)
- 300 pull on 4:00 (3:18)

IM Set
- 8x25s on 40 IM order (did 4xback, fly, back, breast, back)
Cool down

Marge beat me on all the stroke. My back might have been slightly faster than her breast.

My reintroduction to IM workout. Prep for the Walnut Creek camp, which probably has more than just freestyle as part of the program.

Saturday

My hang on workout

Saturday's workout Solo SCM
Warm up
- 600 free
- 200 kick
- 200 back
Hang on set
- 1x100 on 2:00 (1:11)
- 2x100 on 1:50
- 3x100 on 1:40
- 4x100 on 1:30
- 2x100 on 1:20 (supposed to be 5, missed #2)
- 200 ez
- 3x100 on 1:20 (finish up the set)
Cool down
- 300 ez

The goal was to not give up too much time as the intervals got tighter and, of course, finish the set. I was doing pretty good until the end of the 1:30s set when I started seeing 1:18s.

    I like your 300 / 3 x 100 set from today, and have probably done it before. Easy to adjust intervals, mix in stroke, etc. I may have to revisit this soon

    Doesn't your team have weekend workouts?

    Marge said "I think we did this set last month," so you have probably done it before too.

    No, my team only has 3 workouts/week.

    That type of workout is great, so versatile.

    3 workouts a week? My team has 3 a day! (Mon-Thurs), just at Kino.
    No wonder you want a swim camp. You should just come here for a week, swim 3x day, and visit with chowmi's sister
