- College team was using the LCM pool, so started in the diving well, which only had backstroke flags up on one side. Was able to move over for set 2.
- Warm up - A long warmup with kicking as the main effort would be on set 2; 4(4x100) on 2:00.
- Set 1 - Moderate feel good pulling.
- Set 2 - Goal was nothing slower than 1:06. I knew I could do this today, even with lingering soreness from drylands this week. The first 100 of each round was smooth firm effort, and I worked each one more from that point. While the times were encouraging I felt my turns were rushed and shallow. I would almost rather swim a bit slower and have more quality turns. By round three I did not have much left, so put the fins on, kicked a 200, and then did the last round. It was more fun to work hard going under a minute, thats for sure.
