Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Aundrey, Meredith, Roger and Danny. Keith, Ray and Dave did something different a couple lanes over. Did one last hard 5k and now I'm officially tapering. Last year I did more yardage in January but this year, I've pushed hard in the last two weeks with no rest days and two 8K+ days. I'm definitely more exhausted than I was last year. We'll see how well that translates to faster times.

600 Warm up

4 x 100 - 1:30 Convert free -> IM
1:00 Rest
8 x 100 Up/Down Fly - 1:30 (:10) Start w/ 100 Fly
8 x 100 Up/Down Fly - 1:30 (:05)
50 Easy
First 8 went about as I expected. Went 100, 75, 50, 25 fly and then alternated between 50 and 25 fly the rest of the way. On #9, I made 50 fly easily and prepared to make the jump to 75 fly for #10. I was not planning on making 75 fly/25 free on 1:25 but somehow did and was now facing another 100 fly. Made that on about 1:33 and dropped all the way down to 0 fly before I caught up to the interval again .

75 Fly/225 Free - 4:30
50 Fly/250 Free - 4:15
25 Fly/275 Free - 4:00
1:00 Rest
300 Free - 3:45 (made 3:33)

    I'm sort of inadvertently tapering for Auburn because my work/life schedule is going to be wacky for the rest of this week into next and I won't have too many chances to swim. We shall see how this works out.

    Hope it works well for you. I really enjoy the rest and build-up of speed during taper. On the other hand, my GTD standings are going to take a serious hit. I'm already trailing and 2 weeks off isn't going to help that.
