We started out with a small awards from the meet last weekend. It was a last chance qualifier meet for the Sectional Meet in 2 weeks. A few kids got some of their times for the meet.

Our group was split into 3 different workouts today. 2 kids super tapering for Sr. Sectionals this weekend, 9 semi-tapering for Sectionals in a week and a half, and 8 or so doing endurance based not-fun workout.
Luckily, I got put in with the kids tapering for Sectionals, even though I'd probably rather do the endurance workout, my body probably couldn't handle it right now anyway.
I don't mind taper time right now, especially with how tired I am. Let the kids taper, I'll join right in with them.


Warmup:

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

10 x 100 SDK w/ short fins @ 1:40 Odds EZ, Evens Fast
my fast ones I ranged from 1:10-1:14. I found if I came off the wall on my stomach or side vs. on my back, I could SDK further.
(1000/1600)

3 x Broken 200 Stroke @ 6:00 w/ :15 rest between 50s
I did Fly - 1st time in a long time that I've actually had the lane space to truly do fly in practice.
Went Broken ~2:07, ~2:05, ~2:06
I wasn't exactly all out, but it was a strong pace and felt good.

200 EZ
(800/2400)

10 x 50 Stroke Drill Choice @ 1:30
Did Fly, 3-3, 2-2, 1-1, then Full Stroke to end
(500/2900)

10 x 25 from the middle @ 1:00 working on fast good turns
(250/3150)

6 x 25 ALL OUT Choice @ 1:00 - did Free
(150/3300)

400 EZ

    I always feel like I should taper when everyone else is, too!

    Just saw a story on SwimSwam today that a 14 year old boy swam a 9:02 1000 free!

    Might as well give myself a little rest now and then. It's not really all that fun to just pound away all the time. Plus I can use it as a quick mini-taper for a couple of meets in this time of the year.

    9:02 1000...not too shabby.
