I got home from work, checked the team calendar on the computer to confirm that practice was at 6:30pm this week, and realized that I was a week off. Still at 5:00 this week. I'll be lucky to make it to the start of practice daily this week, but I'll do what I can. Work work work...I just can't wait for September when it's all over and I'm back to 40 hours a week or so.
Started a little late:
got in a 200 Free (they did something like a 600 going 50 Free/50 V-Sit - glad I missed that stuff in LCM!!)
8 x 150 SDK on back w/ long fins @ 2:30
Finally a respectable interval. I was able to actually come to the end and be able to talk with people before having to leave again.
3 x 300 Free Pull @ LIFO Desc. 1-3 & also 3 stroke breathing
6 x 50 Fly Drill @ coach's sendoff
- 4 - going 50 Right arm, then 50 Left arm
- 2 going 1-2-1 drill (one stroke right, 2 regular, one left, 2 regular - only breathe on the regular)
8 x 50 Fly Max Rest @ 1:20 - not sure what I was holding, but I felt really good on these. Held a 2-up, 1-down breathing pattern. Led the group...Fly is about the only thing I'm good at in LCM!
8 x 150 (50 Stroke FAST, 50 Free EZ, 50 Free FAST)
- 3 Back, 3 Breast, 2 Free
4 x 50 Sprint Choice (did all Free) @ 1:30
200 EZ and out
Over the weekend I also signed up for the Sandpoint, Idaho Longbridge Swim - 1.76 miles straight across the lake, following the bridge. August 3 is the date. 1.2 miles across the water, and then .5 mile along the shoreline to the finish. www.longbridgeswim.com if anyone wants to sign up. This I believe is the largest OW swim in the northwest. Last year I believe we cleared 900 swimmers or so!!
I also bought a new wetsuit with an awesome coupon code for about 60% savings discount. $400 down to $180!!!! Can't beat that for sure, and it's way better than the cheapo "casual" wetsuit I used last year. That cheapo one just felt like it was dragging me down, and I almost wanted to strip it off and leave it in the lake during the swim. This year should be different.
