Swam w/ Roger, Dave, Dave, Ray, Keith, Meredith and Aundrey. A little sore from soccer yesterday (nothing new there). We played 3 v 3 due to a lack of players on an otherwise perfect afternoon. Once the kinks worked out of my back, I swam pretty well today.

100 Easy
Drafted off of Roger which made this set a lot easier. It's still a lot for me w/ a drag suit on. I was very happy to make the splits especially near the end. Mixed in some stroke on the 300s when I started catching Roger.

25 Easy
3 x 1200 Relay - Ended up being 8 x 50 from a dive with 1:00 rest in between. The goal was for each of the 3 relays to make 12:00. I felt really good on these holding about :27.5.
25 Easy

6 x 100 - 1:30 Descend (1:18, 1:16, 1:14, 1:10, 1:07, 1:04)
200 Easy

Did some turn drill work that Blakely had shown us last week. I floated flat on the surface and then snapped my knees up to my chest. The idea is to carry enough momentum from your legs to do a full backwards somersault. Usually, I ended up stranded with my head straight down. I did get better after a few of them although I'm not sure I'm doing it right.

300 back/breast - easy swim, hard fast turns. Just extending the drill from above and applying it to the breaststroke turns on the wall. The drill does help. My turns are much faster and I'm not feeling the need to grab onto the walls anymore. I experimented with the back -> breast turns. I don't think I was doing this right at all.

200 Cool down
