Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Dave, Roger, Aundrey, Meredith, Danny and Ray. Soccer was exhausting last night. We had a really light turnout despite perfect weather. Played 3 v 2 where the team that last got scored on got the extra player. Fewer players means more running, more touches on the ball and more aches and pains from falls. I really thought I'd have a rough morning in the pool but it wasn't bad at all. Made 5 x 300 IM on 4:30 with a drag suit. That's not something I thought I could do.

    Hi Pete,

    Did you use kickboard when you kick in this (and other) sets?

    I typically use a board to kick. I try not to use a board for backstroke kick (it's already bad enough without a board). Sometimes we do 100 IM kick and I have to hold the board behind my head for backstroke.

    Today, I did the 75 Kick/25 free using breaststroke kick. Breaststroke kick is by far my strongest for anything over 25 yards. My other kicks are a lot weaker but much improved over the last couple years.
