Comments:
  • Once again, tired/sore from previous day 5K and weights the night before.
  • Set 1 - Extension of a warmup - swam straight except did several 25s of the fly as RA/LA
  • Set 2 - The last 400 IM was really the challenge to do with legal and correct turns.
  • Set 3 - Did not cramp in my toes, and kept the freestyle timing the same as without the fins
  • Set 4 - After the first 250, the remaining three were good - but I need to get new tubing for my paddles. I have been considering trying out the new Finis Agility paddles.
  • Warm down - after a lap of sculling and eggbeater kicking my strokes felt pretty good with the paddles off.
