I achieved my goal to swim FR with ABPT (as best possible technique) throughout the workout including during the quality effort swimming. I descended the fast 100s down to about 90% effort and the fast 50s to 85%. After the warm down got out of the pool with some energy to spare.

Today is the last day of school in Lee County, FL until August 8. With my kids home, family traveling and all kinds of different activities happening each week, once again it will be my challenge to keep my swim training consistent. However this time, my wife and I did some planning ahead, so hopefully it will work out better than last summer.

    I'm not that antiquated with some of the swim workout language and don't fully understand a portion of the following:

    I understand it is 12 50's done every 1 minute but I'm lost with the @39/40 and @>:35 parts.

    Nevertheless, that is some magnificent swimming

    You are correct, it was non standard workout language, sorry for the confusion there. I tried to indicate that the odd number 50s were to be at (no faster or slower) than the pace of :39 or :40, and then the even number 50s must be at pace :35 or under/faster than the pace of :35.
