Surprised to see Bill M at the pool this morning - sort of surprised to see myself! It's hard to get OOB when I know I'm going to be swimming solo. Bill apparently had to come today because he can't come tomorrow, so lucky me, I had someone to push me. I know I swam MUCH harder than I would have on my own, even though we didn't even do the same intervals. He calls these ridiculously slow intervals & I guess to show off, I always make my intervals 15 sec faster - why I don't know, but I figure Terry isn't going to let me get away with 200's on the 3:00 ever, so I shouldn't get used to it!

700; 100 free, 25 back/25 breast repeat, ending w/100 free
300 P w/snorkle no paddles
100 free
5 x 200 IM on 3:15 alt IM twitch w/full IM
100 easy
5 x 200 P on 2:45 (so much more do-able than 2:40's - not sure why 5 sec extra rest makes so much difference!!)
100 easy
10 x 50 K on 1:00
150 breast/free
300 breast/free
150 free/breast
Total: 4400

I'm glad I went this morning - I was sort of tight from tennis last night - had a great game with my husband - played 21 - beat him 21-18 on the first one, he clobbered me 21-15 on the second. It's funny, he gets really mad because I'm leading something like 10-5, so he sends these lighting balls for his serves - like 6 in a row - and of course aces me every time. I don't think of that as exactly playing tennis - I think of that as practicing my serve!! But it got him ahead enough that I couldn't recover, lol!
