Yep...I got out early, practice goes till 7:00pm. I was just wiped out tired, and the first "main set" kinda did me in. Doing IM stuff after that was just bad...


400 Free

Kick Set:
20 x 50 SDK w/ long fins @ :50 (I did odds on my side, evens on my back)
On these I just trailed the lane, and left with my <:05 of rest. It's too hard to see the pace clock in the sun glare from the other end of the pool with my goggles on.

"My" Main Set:
Idea is to start out slow, and get a faster pace on each successive rep, till the 100 is a sprint (or something)
500 Free @ 7:30 (went 7:00ish) - 1:24/100
400 Free @ 6:00 (went 5:30) - 1:22.5/100
300 Free @ 4:30 (went 3:55) - 1:19/100
200 Free @ 3:00 (went 2:33) - 1:17.5/100
100 Free @ 1:30 (went 1:12) - 1:12/100
I felt good doing this set, but it was an uphill battle against the wind as well. One direction I could definitely feel the gusts against my, and the other direction it felt like I was on a taper.
I just tried to stay with the kids, but they outdistanced me so badly in this. Especially the 14 year old boy from Alaska. He's fast!! He and Jared were both at least a 50 or more ahead of me on the 300/400/500. The boy's 17 year old sister was also kicking my butt by about 1/2 that distance. I can't wait for SCY to return...I need my walls.

200 EZ

Main Set:
5 x 200 IM @ 5:30 EN3 Set - who knows what I was supposed to be holding, but it wasn't happening for sure. The only thing that felt good was the Fly...after that it wasn't worth writing about.
I ended up only doing 3 of these, and then got out. Being on my feet all day long is tough, and going straight to the pool after work doesn't make it any easier.
