Rate this Entry
Indy!!!

All I have left is 10 hours of work to survive through tomorrow, and then it'll be time to shave, get to the airport in Seattle, and then final sleep on my way to Chicago and Indy. I'm ready to race!


I did a 400 Free warmup tonight, and then just intermixed a bunch of 50s, with a few EZ EZ 100s while the kids were doing a 2000 yard kick set.
I did build 50s, a few at 500 pace (29/30s), and EZ stuff. A few of each stroke as well, then just cooled down a couple 100s.

-----------------------------

1500 of pretty much nothing but feel good swimming.

Next time I'm wet in the pool, it'll be warming up for the mile.


======================


Final conversation with coach John were:

"Wow, that was a quick one!"
"Yeah, about 1500" I said, "Now it's just time to have fun".
His final words were "Go to the legs...and have fun".
"Don't worry, I'm already trained that way. It's my go-to stuff now."

    That's cool. I'm not sure anyone on my team even knows I'm going aside from my coach!
