- 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.
