Feeling somewhat demotivated about blogging my taper. Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Dave, Danny, Roger and Meredith. Meredith got to swim hard since she isn't tapering. Never thought I'd be jealous of someone swimming a long hard fly set. Yesterday, we truncated a workout from the HIT forums. Lots of 25s on 40 or so. I think we did about 2000 yards.

Today, we did a broken 500. I did better than I thought I would. After 2 days of light workouts, I'm starting to recover a bit. Hopefully it will continue over the next few days.


600 Warm up
Splashed around, practiced turns for a while.

6 x 50 - :50
2:00 Rest
500 Hard, broken @ 50s, rest :10s
Did 5:27. Hope that simulates what I can do in Auburn. I'd be really happy w/ anything under 5:30. On the 9th or so 50, lactic acid started building up pretty bad but the 50s were fairly smooth and I was able to hold :32 to :33 fairly easily.

100 Easy

4 rounds of (IM Order by round):
* 2 x 50 Stroke - :40 easy/hard
* 2 x 50 kick - :40 easy/hard

Called times out for Roger's broken 400 IM and out.

(1900 total - probably did a bit more)
