It was really nice having 2 days off from swimming over the weekend, but I did get in 7 hours of paid work Saturday, so that's nice. We celebrated my older daughter's birthday yesterday, and just basically relaxed around the house. Then back to the grindstone again on Monday...
I signed up for the Lake Washington Masters Meet (Feb. 17th), in Kirkland, WA today. I'll be swimming the 200 Fly, 200 IM, 50 Fly, 100 Fly, and 200 Free. I've got a little duel/potential double dual in the 200 Fly with Chris Chapman from the Lake Washington Masters team. He's an excellent sprinter, probably THE BEST in the area...but he's scared of the 200 Fly. It happens to be basically the first event of the meet, so I threw out the challenge, and he accepted. Anyone else want in? Or to just place your bets?
800 Free (w/ every 8th length V-Sit Scull)
6 x 200 SDK w/ short fins @ 3:15 Desc. 1-3 (went from 2:35s down to under 2:20s)
10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:40 (cruised 1:04/1:05s)
12 x 100 IM @ 1:50 Desc. 1-3 (went 1:17s/1:15s/1:11s) very last one was 1:07
12 x 100 Free @ 1:30 Desc. 1-3
started with a 1:05, then dropped to 1:03s, had a few 1:02s also...final one was :59+/1:00-
I was originally shooting for my mile pace, but I think I dropped a bit below that...or maybe not. We'll just have to see later in the year!
100 EZ Kick/float on back
8 x 50 Choice Sprint @ 1:00 - did all Free, but couldn't really go too fast after those earlier 100s
4 x 25 SDK underwater (no fins) @ 1:00
with my short fins I take about 17 kicks for these...today w/out fins I was taking 20 kicks to cover the same distance. Not bad I guess?
