400 Free DPS

400 Kick w/ board "social kick"

400 Free Pull

this part here took about 25 minutes...the coach was doing other things with new swimmer tryouts and talking with parents and such. After he noticed (minutes later) we finished each 400 he'd give us the next one. It was a really low key workout, which was nice.

16 x 25 V-Sit Sculling @ 1:30 (went :38-:42s)

"Main Set"...kinda (John said we needed a little aerobic work to be called a workout)

12 x 75 @ 1:15 Desc.
  • 3 Fly (desc. down to :52)
  • 3 Back (to :55)
  • 3 Breast (to :59)
  • 3 Free (to :43)
  • Jared was leading the breast and free portion of this set, and as he was ready to leave on the final free sendoff, I said to him "if you're not under :45 it doesn't count!" Well, it worked...he went :44, and I was :43 coming up behind him.
15 x 50 @ 1:00
  • 5 worst stroke (did back)
  • 5 best stroke (did fly) :33/:32s
  • 5 free (last one :29)
100 EZ

3500ish yards

Played a game of capture the flag (or pullbuoy) with the team for the final 15 minutes. It was good times. I was able to get to the flag once...but they had some weird rules in it for getting caught too. Apparently, if their finger happens to graze your toe just a little bit, you're supposedly "caught" and have to stop to get taken to the side. So you have to make a clean break for the flag.

For my game of choice, I much prefer old fashioned SHARKS 'N MINNOWS...battledome style. As long as no one dies, anything goes.

This was a nice recovery/taper workout for me. I was pretty beat up early this week, and took yesterday off. Tonight being light, and tomorrow I won't swim either since I have to work some OT ($$$$$$). I'll then have a masters meet in Spokane on Sunday morning which should be fun. 100, 200, 400 IM, 200 Fly, 200 Free. SHould be a piece of cake.

    Moreso than I was at BAMFest, that's for I just need to rest from being up at 4:00am for an early day of work.
