Swam /w Roger, Dave, Dave, Danny and Glenda. Another challenge day. We did 8 x 100 IM on 1:25. It was hard but easier than last week. Instead of 1:20s, I kept it to 1:20-1:22. Made 1:18 on the last one. With my backstroke fixes I'm able to relax the second leg and still maintain a good pace. Felt good and I'm pretty confident I can make 10 of these.

600 Warm up

Challenge set
6 x 50 - :50 (IM Order/free)

From here, we modified Glenda's workout:

4 x 125 - 1:45 Descend (1:35, 1:33, 1:27, 1:24)
1:00 Break
4 x 100 IM Kick - 2:00 Descend (last one was 1:38)
100 Easy

6 x 50 - 1:00 (Fr, IM Order, FR; Odds 2nd 25 hard)
6 x 50 - :55 (Fr, IM Order, FR; Evens 2nd 25 hard)
6 x 50 - :50 (Fr, IM Order, FR)
Roger got to the wall before the last 2 50s and called out "2 breaths per 25 on the remaining 50s". I completely mismanaged my first breath wasting it half-way through the 1st 25. Needed another a few strokes later which left me about 4 strokes to the wall + a flip turn + a glide before I got another breath. Barely made halfway through the last 25 before I burned my last breath and the wall seemed like miles away. I made it but I was hurting badly. The last 50 wasn't nearly as bad. I stretched my first breath a lot further which put me in a better position at the wall.

8 x 25 - :40 (Odds no breath, evens sprint)
DPS no breath free was really good. Got down to 12 strokes. I'm usually about 15-16.

5:00 Easy fly - made 350 yards

100 Cool down

(4350 Total)
