Tonight basically amounted to a fun laid back day in the pool. The coach had the 1st half hour working with "new recruits" who were possibly joining the team, doing swimming tests, etc. and the welcome to the team kind of things with the parents, should they decide to stay. So we had our warmup to be done in the meantime.

400 Kick w/ board
8 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:45 desc. 1-4, 5-8 (didn't go too crazy here)

16 x 25 @ 1:00 Odds V-sit scull, Evens Streamline Back Kick

10 x 75 Kick w/ fins @ 1:15 (25 Hard/25 EZ/25 Hard)

I didn't like the way he ended that statement, but I'll go with it.

8 x 25 Breaststroke @ 1:00
  • Odds Right Hand/Left Foot grab behind back
  • Evens Left Hand/Right Foot grab behind back
Down to the other end to play on the blocks

2 x 50s off blocks - "butt dive" entry (figure it out), V-Sit scull (forward, backward, or sideways) to the 25, then SPRINT Free back

4 x 50s off blocks - feet first jumping streamline entry to bottom, explode off bottom to use the speed into a fast flip turn at surface, which puts you in position for a V-sit scull to the 25, then SPRINT Free back

4 x 25s off blocks - backward (yes, backward facing jump) with the feet first streamlined entry to bottom, then explode off at a 45 degree angle SDKing to explode out for backstroke.

500 Free Swim and out

4300ish yards

and wondering what tomorrow may bring. I do have to work in the morning as well fixin' stuff, but will "push pause" at work, go for a swim, return to work and complete the job. Always nice to be able to do that.
