Arms recovered better than expected from the 9,900 yard session yesterday, but I did feel some remaining fatique during the warm up through starting out Set 1.

The goal of Set 1 was a strong challenge but not really hard or long. It was harder than I expected go right into the 500s after the 10x50s, where the first 100 of each 500 felt almost like recovery pace and then a strong descend pacing of the next four 100s.

Did Set 1 without any equipment, and then a long warm down using some equipment, into dryland band stretching deck work. I feel no aching arms, only minimal effects from today's session.

Swimming 4-6 quality sets in a session with fins and paddles or either one can really tire me out later. But doing quality sets with equipment and without, has eventually brought me to this capacity to do a set like Set 1 today.

    Nice distance set. Was that done by yourself, or with a group? I'd like to do that kind of stuff with the age groupers, but a few of them would just get and want to stop, or get extra rest between the sets.

    Thanks, most of my sessions are solo unless I mention it in the post. This morning, because it was 'cold' at 54 F, no one was there except for myself and FGCU Coach Niel directing a workout with some of his sprinters tapering for NCAAs, I am not sure which division yet.
