Got to the pool late tonight from getting my kids back home after their swimming lessons...so I missed out on the warmup.

Yeah!! Because it was another one of those 500 (25 blah/25 blah/25 .../...)


Warmup:
I did do a 100 Free warmup as they were finishing and getting ready for the next set.


20 x 50 Kick w/ fins (did SDK on back) @ :50 odds EZ, evens Fast
(1100/1100)

10 x 50 Free @ :50 (500 pace)
could only hold :31/:32s...a few :33s
I was still trying to get my arms moving at this point.

200 EZ
(1200/2300)


Main Set:



3 Rounds of 4 x 200s @ 5:00
  • Round 1 is IMs
  • went 2:32/2:30/2:24/2:25
  • -
  • Round 2 is Stroke (all the same - did backstroke)
  • went 2:30/2:30/2:28/2:29 - was quite happy with these
  • -
  • Round 3 is Free
  • went 2:12/2:13/2:10/2:04!!
We had 4 and 5 per lane today, so this was a pretty intense set to do with so many people in the lanes...pretty much a wave pool. Had there been less people (waves) I probably would've done Fly for the 2nd round of 200s, but I was happy doing back today.
Not a bad way to end the set with a 2:04 Free!
(2400/4700)

4 x 25 @ 1:00 One of each stroke FAST

200 EZ and out

    Yeah, you went a 2:04, but only because you sandbagged the first three! Just kidding, that's a nice swim.

    Maybe not a complete sandbag on them, but they're weren't 100% like I could've done. No one was truly doing the set like it should've been done, but with the 4-5 people per lane, that was tough.

    Still...the 2:04 at the end of the set is pretty much the same, if not better than Speedo's 2:03 "all out" from a few weeks back.

    I went 2:03 on Monday morning to prepare for the 200 free on Saturday. 2:04 at the end of a long set is rockin.
