It feels odd - standing around in the pool so much and not trying to get some distance. But, I'm sticking with it. Thanks for the advice and support.
Only did 2200 yards today in 65 minutes. I did work on speed some - not quite full sprint but getting close as I tried to maintain form and breathing. Was fairly pleased with the speed and I still felt tired after the workout.
500 Free Warm Up (7:05)
4x100 Hard on 2:00 (1:12; 1:12; 1:11; 1:11)
4x50 IM Order on 1:30
8x25 IM Order on :45
200 IM (3:10) - This is the race that will psyche me out - it's at the end of the meet right after the 100 Free and 200 Back. I've never swum IM and I just want to survive.
Broken 100 Back - 10 secs rest every 25 - 1:42 less :30= 1:12 (2 secs faster than my race last year)
Broken 200 Free - 10 secs rest every 50 - 2:54 less :30 = 2:24 (5 secs off my race last year)
4x50 Free/Back Easy
