Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Roger and Kent. Had a "make it up as you go day". Water temp noticably cooler today. Didn't get a reading but it felt 82ish.
450 Warm up
Dave B's Set
10 x 100 - 1:30 Odds IM, Evens Free
I went ahead and did them all IM. Started around 1:26 to 1:27 and dropped to 1:23 as I warmed up. Finished on 1:18.
20 x 50 Pull - :45 (Descend 5 50s 4 times)
Despite Howard's warnings, we threw caution to the wind and modified my pace line to work like the Germans do it. Roger and Dave M went in one lane and Kent, Dave B and I went in the other. We did 1000 yards straight with the last person in line moving to the front every 100 yards. In our lane, that meant you had to pass two people when it was your turn to go to the front. To help with that, the other swimmers in the lane swam 25 backstroke while the last swimmer made the pass. Then everyone went back to drafting. Worked pretty well. I think we averaged a 1:17 pace for the 1000 yards. Passing was an adventure. There's a lot of pressure to get moving so that you don't create a traffic jam at the wall. Fun set and harder than my way of doing it.
Dave M's set
6 Times through:
* 50 Kick - 1:00
* 100 Stroke - 1:40
I did Fly/Bk/Br x 2. 1:23 on the last breaststroke.
200 Cool down
