So happy to report that despite overtraining (considering the fact that I usually swim 4500 3-4 x week) my arms are still attached. I am beginning to develop a twitch in my left eye whenever I hear the word butterfly lately, though.....

So today was supposedly "only 6000" - only? Here's what we did - grateful to be swimming with the PRE-seniors and not the Seniors for these two weeks (since I have to get out & go to work 1/2 hour before the Seniors' practice is done):

600 back/free
2 x 300 P
4 x 100 K
4 x 100 IM on 1:40
100 easy
8 x 100 P on 1:30
100 easy
6 x 150, 100 free, 50 choice on 2:30
12 x 50 K on 1:10
100 easy
16 x 50 S on 1:00, 4 free, 4 stroke repeat
100 easy
12 x 25, one drill, two 4-cycle, one sprint
200 easy
Total: 6100 LCM

BTW: Air Temp: 29, Water Temp: 79. Chilly no matter how you look at it.

Looking forward to tomorrow - morning practice 6-8:30, and then I will (hopefully) return at 3pm for another 2 hours. If it is warm, we'll play tennis in between, as well. This way, I can eat as many cookies as I want!!

    You are doing great! So far it all seems good and no big aches or injuries. Training with a group like pre Senior or Senior USA team is way more challenging than going solo. Keep it up, but most importantly, stay healthy and injury free. I like that water temp of 79!
