Tonight we were basically "on our own" for the practice. John had the monthly board meeting tonight, and had given the practice to the assistant coach who put in on the board...saying "John will be here later..." I knew to stay on track, 'cause John knows where we should be at when he arrives...the teens are the ones who think they can 'get away' with stuff. Problem is that the assistant does have working eyeballs, and though she doesn't say much to them...she takes notice and I'm sure relays the info on to the bossman. I just get it done, knowing it will be for my best anyway. I can't afford to goof around that much anyway.


Warmup:

800 (50 Back, 50 V-Sit Scull, 50 Free, 50 Back)
(800/800)

20 x 50 SDK w/ short fins @ :45 (made 'em...I'm not much into this kicking anymore)
(1000/1800)

3 x 300 Free Pull @ 4:45 Desc. 1-3 (went 3:25/3:14/3:10) I haven't been that fast in practice since college days
100 EZ Free
(1000/2800)

Main Set:

4 x 200 IM @ 5:30 MAX REST (went 2:28/2:27/2:27/2:24)

4 x 200 Stroke (did Back) @ 5:30 MAX REST (went 2:35/2:33/2:33/2:32)
(not doing fly with 5+ swimmers in each lane...just too wavy and dangerous for everyone)

4 x 200 Free @ 5:00 MAX REST (went 2:06/2:05/2:05/2:03!!)
(2400/5200)

400 Cooldown

I haven't been that fast, consistently in freestyle for a while, especially on this particular main set, which we do on a fairly consistent basis. We actually did this same set on Saturday (though I did a more distancey version of it on the same intervals). It was fun tonight! I can't wait for my freestyle swims later this year. The Fly/IMs...oh well, you can't have everything.
