Swam with Ray, Peter, Roger, Danny and the two Dave's. When I got there, the group had already started an Hour of Power, so I joined in about at about 500 yards and finished up at the end.
I also wore a regular suit under the drag suit. The when I got to the 400's, I swam the first 400 with the drag suit and the second with just the regular suit to see the impact of the drag suit - over 20 seconds faster without the drag suit. That's over 5 seconds a hundred. Don't know if that holds consistent through out a whole workout or different distances, but it was a bigger impact than I thought. It does help explain why I felt slow and wore down faster.
3x300 on 4:30 (4:05, 3:59 - I actually felt this was decent considering I was warming up)
2x200 on 3:00 (2:38 - 2:40)
4x100 on 1:30
2x200 on 3:00
2x300 on 4:30 (I was wearing down here)
2x400 One in drag suit, one without (6:10, 5:45)
500 Back w/paddles - 7:30
8x50 IM order on 1:00
10x100 Alternating Free on 1:30/Back on 1:35 with paddles
