I'll write this down here in my blog so's I don't forgets what I did:

SCM, Baylor Fitness Center
bright lights and still no blocks

missed warmup

8 x 50 on :45
=> I warmed up on this

16 x 25 on :30
2 fast w/6beat kick; 1 easy
I know; it doesn't round to 16, but so what.

200 easy kick

10 x 50 pull or swim on :45
=> I went every other easy - savin' up for maybe another 25 free set comin' up! And if not, well, I didn't want to do 10 anyways.

12 x 25 on :30
2 fast w/6beat kick; 1 easy

200 easy kick

8 x 25 on :30
2 fast w/6beat kick; 1 easy

Easy 50

Emphasis was on doing the 2 fast 25's with serious punch. The main focus was to have a super strong steady fast kick, so on those I went 100% legs/90% arms on #1 and 100%/100% on #2's, but holding the same time if possible. The 2nd 25 was the key 25. It's easy to do #1, but to hold on #2 is the back half of that 50 free. Also attention to breathing - ie, no breath or 1 breath which took great concentration before pushing off. I thought :30 was a bit tough with the breathing (self-imposed). If I were doing this set on my own, i'd do the easy on :45 and make a point of going no breath/1 breath on the 2 fast ones.

This was a great workout for me. Just up my alley again!

First day of my girls' Swimming Kidz program, so I did 30 min of yoga/stretching on my own during their workout.
