A little late to practice, but I had to get my son home from his swim lesson at the YMCA, and then back across town to the other pool for my "swim lesson".


Warmup:
800 (25 Front Scull/25 Back EZ/25 V-Sit Scull/25 Free)
**I got in 300 of this warmup when the others finished
500 Kick w/ board
(800/800)

16 x 50 Free Pull w/ paddles @ :50 (Desc. 1-4) Breathe every 3
went :35s down to :30s
(800/1600)

16 x 25 SDK underwater no breathers w/ fins @ 1:00 (I led the group here, held :12s)
(400/2000)

6 x 100 SDK on back @ 2:00 (Desc. 1-3, 4-6)
**first round of 3 went 1:07/1:08/1:08
**second round of 3 went 1:20/1:15/1:05
This was by far one of the fastest efforts I've been able to do on 100s kick
(600/2600)


Main Set: (supposed to be 2 rounds of the 5,4,3,2,1, but we ran short on time and John cut out a little on the second round)

LAP TRAFFIC SUCKED (we had 5 per lane):
500 Free @ 8:00 last 100 FAST w/ kick
went 5:45
400 Free @ 7:00 last 100 FAST w/ kick
went 4:31
300 Free @ 5:30 ALL FAST
went 3:14
200 Free @ 4:00 All EZ
went 2:35ish
100 Free @ 2:00 SPRINT
went :59 (I haven't been under 1:00 at the end of these sets yet, so this was nice)

400 Free @ 7:00 Build by 100s to Fast
went 4:45 (a little tired)
200 Free @ 4:00 Build by 50s, start @ 85%
went 2:11, but felt decent
100 Free @ 2:00 SPRINT!
went :57!! (coach said so) <--that's how I felt inside my head, but I was grasping for anything to hold on to...
(2200/4800)

    Thanks guys! I'm glad I'm setting the bar high for people to aim for! It's definitely keeping me going swimming with these youngin's vs. solo swimming in the YMCA lap lanes like last year.
