Main Set for today was taken from the insane workouts for the animal lane written by PWB. I took one of the "easy ones", though it wasn't truly that easy. I would've gone for more, but it was insane avoiding non-swimmers and noodlers in the lanes today.
I just got my side of the lane and tried to ignore the rotation of people trying to get in and out of lanes (including mine). No one tried to stop me luckily during my longer swims, but I would do a type of OW sighting to look to see who was coming into my lane, and what plans they had. For the most part, people avoided my half of the lane, though at one time there were two people sharing the other half of my lane. I would've gladly circle swam, but they wouldn't have enjoyed it much...even my kicking with a board was faster than whatever they were calling swimming.

    Glad you enjoyed it! I doubt many people are going to have the time to drop 7k to 10k workouts, but figured an animal lane thread needed at least some real, animal lane workouts.

    Not sure about the "enjoy" part, but it was what I needed. I did much better in the mid-longer distances than the 100s fast, but they were still good (hurt). I figure on days where I'm not actually being coached, I might as well build on my distance freestyle stuff. I don't really get a lot of that with my IM-based club team.
