Easy to moderate effort session today with kicking, drills, and FR 25s. Set 3 was intended as 40x25 FR on :30 holding :15 with long efficient stroke pattern, then pick it up on every 4th 25. Well the rain started to pour down about the 16th 25, I stopped after number 20 and ran over to move my stuff higher on the covered bleachers away from the rain, then confirmed with lifeguards they were not closing down the pool (no lightning/thunder). I re-started, now going each 5th/25 faster, and at halfway through number 11, the lifeguard chair umbrella blew into the lane next to me, which I helped to retrieve. So while I did not go 40x25 straight, I got a sample of that kind of set. Next I will try to swim that set straight through attempting a :14 pace for as many 25s as possible.
