28,500 Yards for the Monday-Friday week for me. On top of 50 hours of work, and 10 more tomorrow too! Quite a jump back up since Nationals since my taper yardage took me down below 2000 a practice leading up to the meet.

In other dumb news:

I think this is one of the dumbest ideas that FINA could ever be considering to change. Why would they even think of making unlimited SDKs to the 15 meter mark in breaststroke?? I could do that, then do my pulldown, kickup, and be at the wall. 25 yards completed without doing a single stroke. Granted I couldn't exactly keep that up for a full 100 or 200, but it would completely change anything about the stroke.

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

The kids were all tired and worn out at practice tonight as well. I guess that big fin/paddle set we did last night made others tired as well. Normally the kids are all peppy and won't stop talking, but you could just sense they were wiped out. I was even running down Jared in the IMs and breaststroke tonight, which isn't normal!!

Warmup:

300 Free
(300/300)

10 x 100 Kick w/ long fins @ 1:25
did 6 SDK, then 4 Flutter Kick w/ board - I hate flutter with a board AND fins, but had to do something different.
(1000/1300)

Main Set(s):

8 Rounds of:
  • 200 IM (25 EZ/25 Fast) @ 3:30
  • 50 Fast @ :50 (1&2 Fly, 3&4 Back, 5&6 Breast, 7&8 Free)

I was around 2:30s + - a few seconds on the IMs, and rocked the 50s.

200 EZ
(2200/3500)

6 x 200 Free Pull @ 2:40

  • #1/#4 - EZ breathe every 3
  • #2/#5 - Build by 50s breathe every 3
  • #3/#6 - FAST breathe how you want to - right, right, right, right, right, right, right, left
  • went a 2:05 and 2:06 on the fast ones.

(1200/4700)

10 Rounds of: (non-Free on these) (at least 5 of them must be "best stroke")
I did the first 5 Fly, then 2 Breast, 2 Back, and 1 Breast

  • 50 Build @ :50
  • 25 ~90% Fast @ :45
  • 25 ~100% Fast @ :45

    The rule is only contemplated on the start, not every length. It would be a big change ... I do like the new HS rule change that says you don't need to separate your hands before taking the dolphin kick. Having to move the hands apart slightly always seemed stupid to me.

    However the rule is going to be, I with they'd just put breaststroke back to breaststroke. Why make rules for the cheaters??? DQ 'em and get on with it. Take away their medals, whatever. Video proof or admission to guilt. Back in the wild west they had a way to deal with that kind of stuff.
