Slowly beginning to feel like I can swim all the strokes again. For now my freestyle endurance swimming has been moderate, with 3/4 catch up style. In this way, I have more energy and quality stroke technique to apply towards the quality swimming sets.

I enjoyed Set 4, swimming the fast FR 50s with the fins and paddles. I seem to be getting a good freestyle speed from a strong kick and long stroke with smooth tempo into a slight increase in tempo the last ten meters. I was pleased with descending to :26s, but then my legs (kicking) were beginning to collapse on 50s #2 & 3 of round 2 in Set 4, so took an extra rest and 100 meter recovery swimming to attempt for good effort on final 50 FR, but was whistled out by the lifeguards due to incoming thunderstorm.
