After tonight, I would've rather repeated my 7,500 swim from yesterday again. Tonight was all about sprint endurance, and it gets painful really quickly.

We had 6 or 7 people in each lane tonight, so it was hectic!!

Warmup:

300 Free
6 x 50 V-Sit Scull @ 1:50
(600/600)

10 x 100 SDK w/ short fins @ 1:20 (basically I missed them all after the first 2)
super wavy during this
(1000/1600)

Main Set (EN3 work):

4 stations (3 lanes, and 12 1/2 yd. deep tank)
Round 1: IM
8 x 100 IM @ 2:30 (held 1:10/1:11s on most, last one 1:09)
Round 2: Strong Stroke (no way was I doing fly with that many in the pool)
8 x 100 Breast @ 2:30 (held 1:21/1:22s, last one 1:19)
Round 3: Free
8 x 100 Free @ 2:30 (held 1:02/1:03s, last one 1:00)
Round 4: Short Sprints in deep tank
20 x ~12.5 Free breakouts @ 1:00 (room for a quick streamline, 4 strokes and look for the wall)
(2650/4250)

200 cooldown

------------------------------
4450 Yards of pain


I thought I did pretty well considering the wavy crowded conditions. John wants me to try to hold 1:00/1:01s on all the 100 Frees we do like this, with my goal of reaching the 5:00 mark in the 500. I actually find it easier to do that on the 1:30 interval rather than the 2:30 interval. Less time for lactic acid buildup.

    If your muscles are getting cold, why not do an ez 50 when the interval has 90s rest?

    Muscles aren't cold...and it's easier to sit there. It's mostly getting the breathing under control from going 90%+ all the time. Plus the set doesn't call for an extra 50 in between. That would defeat the purpose of what we were doing. Supposed to be able to swim fast when you hurt...simulates the end of races (for those who swim more than a 50 or 100)
