Comments:
  • During warmup I felt the best so far this week, which I think is partly due to getting more protein in my meals, and my sleeping has improved.
  • Set 1 - This is my best 5000 SCY swim in about 17 years going under 60 minutes. My goal was to be at 1:12 pace per 100 or faster. I am really encouraged by the results, although I did get ragged during the 4th 1000, the last 500 was solid. As soon as I showed up on the pool deck, Coach suggested doing it, and then lifeguard Colleen offered to take my splits, since her shift was over(I think it was a planned conspiracy).
  • I have reached my USMS 2012 GTD Goal of 606 miles with an current pace of 607.15 miles as of today. So the week that started out really awful ends up being pretty good.
