Warmup:

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

16 x 25 Sprint Swim w/ fins (short ones) @ 1:00
I hate swimming with fins, so I just cruised them.
(400/1000)

12 x 50 SDK w/ short fins
  • 1 @ :50
  • 1 @ :45
  • 1 @ :40
  • 1 @ :35
  • Repeat x 2

I made them all today
(600/1600)

5 x Broken 100s @ 3:30 w/ :10 between 25s
I did minimal effort and just cruised them. Probably about 1:00 for my add up times

200 EZ
(700/2300)

3 x 400 Free Pull @ 5:30

  • #1 @ 25+ HR (for 10 sec.) went 4:15
  • #2 @ 27+ HR went 4:08
  • #3 @ 29+ HR went 4:07

These were by far my fastest and best ever times in distance like this in practice. I've done 300s pull coming in at 3:11 before, but never done 400s, and to kill the old pace was great. I wasn't winded at all either, and Jared was having trouble keeping up with me.

200 EZ
(1400/3700)

3 x 300 Free @ 4:30 - same HR goals as above
I did the first one as a cool down, since I wanted to rest a little bit the night before my meet in CDA, Idaho. I did want to challenge myself with the set, but knew better, since I do have a distance date with That Guy tomorrow.

4000 Yards


Speaking of That Guy...
Here is a quote from him in part of his interview posted in the latest PNA Newsletter:

I’m active on the USMS forums, keeping up with the sport and chatting with friends from all over. And making fun of fellow swimmers on the Internet is its own reward…
Hmmmm...

    Thanks

    I'll have a chance to do my "300s" that I missed during the meet today. It's just too bad we can't race with paddles and a buoy (or at least the paddles).

    That's what I do. At least with paddles.
