Warmup:

600 (25 Free/25 V-Sit Scull)
(600/600)

Kicking...UGH, my legs are so dead from work...
16 x 25 SDK w/ short fins underwaters @ 1:00
All w/ short fins:
3 x 50 SDK @ :45 made them
3 x 50 SDK @ :40 made them
3 x 50 SDK @ :35 missed them. First one about :38, after that I just kicked.
Short fins help you, but they're not like long fins. With long fins I can kick too easy, but I like the feel of the short ones.
(850/1450)

3 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:45 went 1:05/1:06
3 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:35 went 1:03s
3 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:25 went 1:02/1:03

200 EZ

3250 Yards

Workout got done early so they could do the awards presentations for the kids Champs meet last weekend. I stuck around to support them and listen to how they did. The team was 3rd place overall, the 10 & Unders won the "high point" for the meet (they made a special classification for a team high point for the 10 & unders since they were timed finals only). We had one 12 year old girl get a high point award as well. Lots of times drops, lots of sectional qualifying times.

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

For other masters news: This weekend I will be heading to another meet in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Short course meters in a fairly new facility. It's a wall-to-wall 25 meter pool, so if anyone can get Jim Thornton to get registered, he has a few hours left online.
I'm swimming the 1st 2 events - 200 IM, and 400 Free...then skipping literally a couple events till the 200 Free. After that I wait around for the last 2 events of the meet: 400 IM, then finish with the 1500 Free. Luckily there are 15 people so far entered in the 1500, so that means at least 3 heats. I'll have about an hour of rest after the 400 IM, so all good. My only concern will be my lack of rest this whole week with my work schedule. I'm sure when the horn goes off, I'll be ready.

    Looks like good weather over the pass for me. Should be some fun racing!

    For some reason I looked at Snoqualmie Pass as well to see if you'd be coming. I knew we'd had some snowy-type stuff in the area last few days, and wasn't sure what it did in the mountains. I'm sure you'll be ready for another photo-finish in the 1500?
