Lap swim session again at the Y. It'll be nice next week when the swim practices get started again. I'm feeling good in the pool again now though. The first part of the week I was halfway sick and trying to do too much too fast after my vacation. I took yesterday off altogether and then went in for a little swim with some effort tonight.

Swedish 1:01 50s SDK w/ long fins
Started on the :01, with the goal to beat the upcoming :60/00 on the pace clock on each one. It's easy at first, but when you get closer to leaving on the :30, it's pretty tough.
Did 30 x 50 SDK w/ long fins. Made them all on the "goal" of beating the second hand on the pace clock to the :60
It did get a little tough near the end, but with the 1:01 interval, there was plenty of recovery time

Going to Idaho tomorrow for the meet. 2 day LMSC Champs. We'll see how I do. I'm feeling pretty good in the pool tonight, and after the gun goes off it'll be time to race no matter what. Here goes nothing...

    Thanks! While we do a lot of kicking, we don't do things like this, and since I was on my own that day I figured I'd give my mind and body something to do. It made it challenging, yet still had plenty of rest to recover for the next one.
