400 Free
8 x 50 w/ long fins "core kick" @ 1:00

6 x 200 Free Pull @ 4:00 Desc. 1-3, 4-6
  • went 2:15/2:10/2:03
  • then 2:14/2:10/2:02


16 x 50 IM Order (4 Rounds of Fly/Back/Breast/Free) @ 1:15

  • Round 1: 3 SDKs on Fly/Back/Free, 3 sec. hold on the streamline phase of the Breast
  • Round 2: 5 SDKs " ", 4 sec. hold " "
  • Round 3: 7 SDKs " ", 5 sec. hold " "
  • Round 4: 9 SDKs " ", 6 sec. hold " " + did a bonus Backstroke on this one 'cause some people didn't do it right...majorly

Not bad overall...brings back memories of the good ol' college IM days that I remember. I usetacould do a 200 Back w/ 15Meter SDKs, but that takes work that I'm not willing to do at this stage of my career.

3 x Broken 100s @ 3:00 w/ :10 rest between 25s Choice Stroke
Did Free - :53, :53, :52
400 EZ Cooldown

John split off the Age Group Sectional kids to the deep tank for some EZer stuff, while he beat the hell out of the rest of us:
8 x 100 Free @ 1:30 Max Rest
(went 1:01/:02/:02/:02/:04/:03/:02/:00) I was hurting in the middle, but brought it back home strong

Everyone together again:
16 x 50 SDK w/ long fins @ 1:00 Odds EZ/Evens Fast
Last one was a :29
I had fun with the long fins...I finally got around to purchasing some of my very own too...tired of getting my @ss kicked while using my short fins all the time.

500 EZ and out

5650 Yards

That was just what I needed today. Back to the grindstone...somewhat. A little bit of speed, a little bit of endurance, but felt really good. I really like training with our team...doing the longer rest/higher quality repeats...rather than slugging away at rep after rep of low rest distance like the old days.


Only 4 more days till I get outta the U.S. as well, on our family trip to El Salvador to visit my wife's hometown, live the life for a week, and make it home...FAST.

    Great workout. The 8x100s were really strong and you must be feeling good about your preparation for Nationals.

    Thanks. It's definitely feeling easier and easier to maintain these faster times in workouts as compared with last fall. I'm just wondering how this next week will do for me.
