It's going to be tough to make my GTD goal this year - no slacking will be permitted, as I apparently need to either do 5200 M three times a week, or 4200 M four times a week. Still, 1,000,000 M? A lofty goal, but hopefully I will be healthy all year & be able to say I did it!

Felt stronger in practice this morning.

600 back/free
2 x 300 P w/20sec rest
300 K
15 x 100 on 1:30, 70-80-90% by groups of 5 - mostly held 1:26 on first 5, then 1:24's on middle 5, then the last five I was just dragging & frequently only getting 2-3 seconds rest. But I did finish, and w/out cheating even one 100.
2 min rest
100 sprint (1:15)
200 easy
20 x 50 on :55; 4 free, 4 stroke repeat, desc 1-4
300 breast/ free
Total: 4600 LCM

    Great workout! 15x100 on 1:30 LCM, then a 1:15 is awesome. I hope you make your GTD this year, and because it is a lofty goal, it is likely that you will do your best effort to reach it. Did 750 miles for 1012 GTD, so my 2013 GTD is 800.

    THANKS! Felt nice. 800 miles is a LONG way! But I'm sure you can do it! Especially since you are an animal - and I mean that in the most positive way possible!
