Got in a double today. The swim was mostly hypoxic/technique oriented, though the 2 x 25 fly weren't slow.

    SOMETIMES???!?!!???

    Since I've joined the USAS club team, I dislike solo swimming anymore. I'm sure I'll eventually be back to it, but it's very hard for me to keep myself on task past about 2500-3000 yards by myself. At least having a drill sargeant on deck keeps you motivated more...especially when the set sucks!!

    Yep, just sometimes. :-) I often like training alone because I can customize the workouts to my events and do exactly what I want in the way I want. The downside is that I have a hard time doing lactate tolerance sets on my own. So I think I am underperforming on my 100s.
