Took a risk going to practice today, figured there would be goal sets - and knew I would be the slowest thing around. Went anyway. Luckily Jennifer was there - even though she's like 8 seconds faster than me/100. Kid's were very sweet. I saw Alex D under water at my 50 on the last one & he was like egging me on - go faster! Very nice & supportive - don't quite know what the kids think of me, but they are used to me at least!!

600 back/free
500 Pull locomotive
5 x 100 IM on 1:30
500 Kick locomotive
16 x 50 on :50, 60, 70, 80 & 90% by 4's
4 x 4 cycle speed play
100 easy
(Long talk by Terry to get us motivated for goal sets)
4 x 4 cycle speed play
100 easy
4 x 100 all out sprint on ~10:00, plus 100 easy (or more afterwards)
1:09.8, 1:11+, 1:10.7, 1:09.7 - very frustrating to be so slow - good thing I go faster in meets!
Then cool down: 8 x 100 on 1:30 - first 4 at 70%, slower on the last 4

Total: 5000SCY


I was surprised to see that we got that much yardage in - considering it took us nearly an hour to do the Goal sets - We were originally supposed to do 5, but I guess Terry spent too much time talking to us (about how important they are, and all!) Supposedly we'll get to do this again in 2 weeks - oh goody.
