Yesterday I took my kids down to the riverfront park to go to the annual Apple Blossom carnival that comes to town every spring. Rides and rides and rides. My son is now big enough to go on the "big kid" rides with his big sister, so they had a blast. Though little 3 year old was in a tissy the whole time 'cause she couldn't do the big rides. But she had fun on the little ones, which were "way too boring" to quote my son.
Friday night will be the annual "Classy Chassis" parade, where all the old cars, muscle cars, unique cars, and more come out to cruise down the main street in East Wenatchee. It's the best of the 3 parades here in my opinion over the 2 week period.
So there will be no swimming Friday, Saturday, Sunday around here, but it's taper time anyway. I've still got one more lighter swim tomorrow, and then a couple splash n' dashes on Mon/Tues. next week.


Warmup:

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

12 x 100 Kick w/ fins 4 @ 1:25, 4 @ 1:20, 4 @ 1:15 make 'em
I did 12 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board Odds EZ/Evens Fast on those intervals.
Went between :40 to :42 on the fast ones.
(600/1200)

Main Set:

10 x 200 Choice Stroke FAST 180+ HR @ 5:30
I did a rotation of 1 EZ, 1 Build, 1 FAST
On #3 I went Free, did a 2:03 - wow! I thought, and not even breathing too hard
On #6 I went Free again, did a 2:02
On #9 I went IM, did a 2:19, which is my best ever practice time
Not bad times considering we had 5 people in the lanes, and the 13 year old girls were doing oddball (non-Free) strokes most of the time, so lapping was not fun.

200 EZ
(2200/3400)

500 Free Pull Stretch out
(500/3900)

16 x 25 Fast, IM Order 4 each stroke @ 1:00
I did desc. by 25s on each stroke
(400/4300)

200 EZ and out

---------------------------
4500 Yards


In other good news, I'll be on overtime at work near the end of my day tomorrow (Thursday), and still have 10 hours+ each on Friday and Saturday.
