Making use of the last of my YMCA membership today, as I am only paying through the end of the month. Got the idea from Jim Thornton's FB pre-birthday swim to do 60x100s on varying intervals, but was going to modify to my pleasure with swim, pull, and kick in the mix.


10 x 100 Free @ 1:30 cruised them
10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:25 (1:07-08s)

At this point the 2 available lap lanes became a "zoo" of sorts as far as lap swims go, and I'd almost speared a couple kids off my streamlines who kept coming across trying to get their ball. I just resorted to

10 x 100 Kick w/ fins @ 1:40 (ranged 1:20-1:30 depending on traffic)

...and got out.

------------------

3000 Yards and out


It was good that I swam today anyway, since I'm going to miss practice tomorrow night...we have our bi-monthly conference call for the LMSC board meeting tomorrow night.

    James, which fins did you recently get? Which ones do you like to use most?

    I got these:

    The Blade Training Fin (#415), which is the shorter one. Fortress suggested the longer one (#412) to me, but I chose otherwise.

    I like being able to keep my feet moving faster in the water, and with longer fins I've always felt "slow" with my kick even though I'm getting great propulsion.
