The weather is really getting cooler in the mornings now, so nice. Water felt great.
Beginning to not look forward to Wed morning practices - it's "stroke" day - but luckily he has been adding in a distance freestyle lane (about every other week), so I didn't have to worry about killing my knee again. On the other hand, it was a really long set.
3 x 200 Pull on 2:50
400 kick, 75 hard, 25 easy
9 x 200 on 2:40, descend in groups of 3
4 x 50 on :50 descend 1-3, hold 4
500 pull, stretching it out
** I managed to get (literally) a lung-full of water on the very first 50 of the 200's & felt like I couldn't breathe well the entire set. Jen led the lane after about 4 of them - but she put on paddles & a pull-buoy. Sela had on paddles too - so I was the only old lady who did the set the way the coach called it. Of course, Jennifer looked much better than I did, and Sela, bless her heart - after I finished hacking up all the water in my lung, she insisted on going in front of me, and she can barely make a 1:20 interval with her paddles on. I was going 8-10 secs behind her & caught her every time, but she still wouldn't let me go back in front of her. One of us is going to have to change lanes.
