On the positive side

I think my posts have been pretty negative lately which is an accurate reflection of how I feel about swimming lately, but today the opposite was true.
Since I have accepted the fact that I fumbled the ball I am not going to blog all my workouts and go back to posting when I have something interesting to share. I really enjoyed a particular set today.
- 250 swim, 200 kick 250 swim
- 4x150 free/back/free
Main Set #1
-- 300 free
-- 4x150 on 2:00 descend 1-4
Main Set #2
- 8x50 kick w/fins on :45
Main Set #3
- 12x50 every 3rd fast on :45
- 100 easy
Main Set #3 was great for me. Josh picked the interval and it worked out that going straight from fast into a recovery 50, followed by an ez 50, followed by another fast 50 kept the set moving forward at such a pace that there was no time to dread the next fast effort, but plenty of recovery to keep the effort high. I was happy with 30s on the fasts.
After practice Josh mentioned that he wasn't happy with his 200 at the meet and wants to do more 500s in practice, so next Wednesday I expect to see 8x500s on 6:00 as the main set.
I finally caught up on sleep, which helped my performance today. In the first two months of the year I have flown 48,594 miles and luckily will fly slightly less than that in the next 10 months.
