600 (25 Back/25 V-sit scull/25 Free/25 V-sit scull)
My v-sit stomach muscles were hurting today...this wasn't fun.

Now on to the fun...

10 x 100 SDK on back w/ short fins @ 1:25 (held 1:19-1:21s)

10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:30 breathe every 3 (went 1:08s, desc'd down to 1:05s)
as we finished this set, John says "grab your fins and boards" Uh-oh...

10 x 100 SDK on back w/ short fins @ 1:20!! (I made them, held 1:15-1:16s)
very surprised that I was able to do this

200 EZ

Main Set:

2 Rounds of:
  • 400 IM (50 relaxed, 50 FAST)
  • 300 Free (50 relaxed, 50 FAST)

100 EZEZ

8 x 100 Free @ 1:20
I chose to alternate odds Fly/evens Free
Flys held 1:09s-1:11s
Frees just cruised them around 1:10s, last Free was about 1:05


300 EZ

7000 Yards

Most we've done in a 2 hour practice, and 2000 of these yards were high intense fin kicking as well. Definitely a kick in the ass practice. I'm off to soon...maybe.

They're going to start doing morning practices as well on Tues/Thurs. mornings for an hour and a half, but (lucky for me) I have to be at work by 6:00am and can't make them. Dang... Though they would be good for me.

    Wow! I would've been toasted and considered the 20 x 100 kick as the main set. Most excellent workout. Awesome effort and results.

    Thanks Patrick. It wasn't too bad. But you can't just "jump right in" to these took me a while to get to where I could make the 10x100s without we're getting faster and faster on the intervals. I can't wait (well, I can) for the 1:15 interval!!
