Best thing about Wednesdays is PAYDAY!! At least I got a decent check for the hours I'm putting in, and they will only get bigger as the weeks go on too! Yup, I got word today that the 10+ hour days will be continuing for a while now...not sure why, but we're doing it, so I'll be going from 4:00am - 2:30(or later)pm, plus doing some Saturday maintinence projects as well I assume. Paycheck good, rest and life bad. Swimming - make it happen.

Warmup:

300 Free
300 Kick w/ board
300 Free Pull
(900/900)

10 x 100 SDK w/ short fins @ 1:25 Max Rest
I did Odds 100s, Evens 50s. Made the intervals on the odds, and just relaxed on the evens. My legs are just beat from all the work...standing, climbing, moving, lifting, kneeling, crawling, etc.
(750/1650)

5 x 200 Free Pull @ 3:30
Odds FAST - went 2:08/2:06/2:03
Evens EZ - went 2:15/2:15 - not exactly EZ, but controlled
(1000/2650)

6 x Broken 100s Choice @ 3:00, w/ :10 rest @ 25s
I did 3 of these, Freestyle, went :54/:54/:55
(300/2950)

--------------------------------

2950 Yards

I got out at this point so I can relax a bit and try to get to bed for the early morning that is coming soon.

    My boss was telling me today he was on a project a couple years ago where everyone had to work mandatory 66 hour weeks for a few months. All I could think is I hope I'm never on something like that. That would definitely limit the swimming.

    Good luck this weekend!

    Thanks! This will be the real test, to race T.G. when I'm this tired. At least I have the excuse that...uh...well, we'll just say I have the list ready.

    And you know somehow he's always ready to swim fast. I'm not convinced he's not a actually a robot.

    The question is...will he be ready for the back half of the 1500 at the end of the meet? Age group training.
