The others had started 25 and 50 yard sprint sets when I got there. There was an open lane next to Keith had a lane, so I joined him. He had started a 500 so I warmed up with some 100's and then started in on a mainf set - up and down a laddrer. I can't say I like ladders, but I do think they are good workouts - combining speed/pace and endurance.
Had a first today - as small as it may seem. I did a 200 yard Breast - never swam Breast that far. My knee was starting to give the last 30 - 40 yards but it didn't hurt too bad - it was as much ability to keep a proper kick as it was pain.
Also worked my backstroke without paddles to get it in shape for the meet. I should do that more anyway.
