Back indoors to SCM!

450 warmup. It was suppose to be a 500, but I just didn't feel like finishing.

12 x 50 on 1:00
suppose to be kick, but I did
1 kick on back;
2 x kick w/board/swim by 25

Main set:
200 easy on 3:30
8 x 25 on :40

200 easy on 3:30
4 x 50 on 1:00

200 easy on 3:30
2 x 100 on 2:00

200 easy on 3:30
1 x 200

200 easy

This was a great 200 backstroke set!

18-19's
38-39's
1:20, 1:12
2:45
and did an easy 100 per every recovery 200.

That really took it out of me. I am not swimming with the team tomorrow. Maybe easy stuff on my own.

I am really into these ROCKTELLA lolipops. They are sold in the mexican grocery store (Fiesta) but I can't find these ones at WMT. They have 4 chili layers and sour bubble gum in the middle. The only thing I don't like is they are perfectly round, which actually makes it hard for resting it, retainer-like, in your mouth so you have both hands free. And they are nice and big, so it looks dumb for a 44 year old woman to have it poking out the side of the cheek. But then I use my right hand to hold it, which is also my remote hand, and I have noticed I must be getting pre-carpal tunnel Rocktella remote syndrome in my right hand.

    That is a great 200 back set and those are strong swims. You did the set the macho way too, eliminating the breaks as the set moves on instead of starting with a straight 200 and adding the breaks. How rested are you?

    Not rested, really just in "no season" mode. I started INSANITY, and that has really helped my endurance! You should see my mummy drills! I would prefer to do 4 x 50 easy in between on say, 1:00 each for a full 4 mins between sets, then take an extra :30 after #4. That would give you just a bit more rest for extra quality. I think my long term goal is to get my back times down to almost my free times in workout. That would be closer to

    14-15
    33-36
    1:15 range
    2:30

    so i have a long time to improve! maybe start with

    17
    37
    sub 1:20
    sub 2:40
