The Labours of SwimStud

I wanted to run yesterday but I seem to be battling some sciatica/SI joint aggro right now. So yesterday I diminished and had a 15 minute cycle and a good stretch out. Which seemed to loosen it up. Woke up today and it's kinda back (no pun intended) but I went swimming, Problem is it seems to get worse while swimming I'm guessing from flip turns...I'm sure it's temporary but annoying nonetheless. I can only imagine the torque that got exerted on my spine, and hip carriage at Nats, such were the heroics of my accomplishments in Greensboro. Hmm maybe I need to find a masseuse too work out the kinks...
Anyhow, here is what I ripped from Fort's list. 25Y pool.

Warm up:

800 EZ Free

Main Sets:

5 x 100 @ 1:50
50 free + 50 back
I suck at backstroke...truly...

5 x 50 flutter kick w/board @ 1:20
50 EZ
Handled it OK

5 x 100 @ 2:00
50 breast + 50 free
descend 1-4, smooth DPS 5
you know I loved this set descended my 100s over all from 1:35 to 1:20. The BR portion I roughly went, 55, 50, 45, 40. I felt good with those.

5 x 50 dolpin kick w/board @ 1:30
25 fast + 25 EZ
50 EZ
Another swimmer lent me a fancy kickboard (foamy odd looking thing) to work with. Much easier for Fly kick with a board that doesn't prop up your torso.

5 x 100 @ 2:30/3:00
50 fast @ 90% + 50 EZ
went 35ish on all fasts...controlled stroke.

5 x 50 dolphin kick on back w/fins @ 1:00
25 shooter + 25 EZ
No problems with this.

100 EZ

Total: 3300
