I felt good today. My pain from last week had gone and overall I felt strong the entire practice.

1x100 on 1min
8x75kick on 1.05 with flippers
6x75 free on 1min breathing 3 on odds and 5 on evens
6x50 on 35 long on turns and no breath off the wall. Held 30-31 on all of these.
15 minutes on the vasa swim bench. 20 pulls per set with 15 second rest
I made all the main set 100 times on the descending times holding 1.03 upto the 1.05 set, then dropped to 1.00 on the 1.05 set and went 59 on the last 100. I am finally starting to feel strong and I am enjoying increasing the yardage. My hurt is a different kind of hurt from when i first got back in the pool, and i feel like i am making good progress.
I signed up for my first meet on 19th January. I am only doing 3 events but I am really looking forward to doing a few events in a short period of time to gage my progress.
