Mon, Nov. 12 - Trying to Shift My Emphasis

Having reached 500 miles, hopefully I can get my mind off of yardage and think more about stroke diversity, kicking, and speed. Having said that, we started today with a Hour of Power and I stayed another 45 minutes - so, I put in a lot of yardage. Still, I did add some diversity. Another thing I did, or didn't do, is no paddles today. I like them for strength and feel, but I want to wean them down, particularly in backstroke. Plus, I didn't want to stress my arm/shoulder any more.
Swam with Ray, Peter, Dave M. and Dave B. There was a light group today so we each had our own lane.
Hour of Power (all sets based on a 1:30/100 interval)
2x400, 2x300, 2x200, 4x100, 2x200, 2x300, 2x400 (swam this moderately hard, but didn't stress myself, still I made everything comfortably)
8x50 IM order (actually did the 50 fly and 50 breast)
8x50 IM order on 1:00
4x100 Back/Free on 1:45
