Swam yesterday with Meredith and Dave. Dave B and Roger came in later and did a broken 400 in preparation for a sprint triathlon they are doing this weekend. I put in 5K total, most of which came in 6 rounds of: (4x50 IM Order @ :50 + 2x200 pull @ 2:20 + 1:00 Rest) Today, I swam w/ Dave. Dave B showed up later in full triathlon gear. He looked pretty fancy with his new red TYR tri-jammer nicely coordinated with his cycling jersey and red highlighted running shoes. I'm pretty sure he will be fast but if he isn't, at least he has the looking fast part of it down.

Speaking of cool new stuff, I got my yearly GTD Nike swim suit in the mail yesterday for making 500 miles. Looks like I've held on to my sponsorship deal for another year. Wake up TYR and Speedo! Yet again, I'll be sporting a Nike swoosh on my left hip instead of your brands. My agent is standing by for your call.

600 Warm up

4 x (75 Pull @ 1:00, 75 Kick @ 1:20, 75 Reverse IM, no free @ 1:15)
1:00 Rest
4 x (75 Pull @ :55, 75 Kick @ 1:20, 75 Reverse IM, no free @ 1:15)
1:00 Rest
4 x (75 Pull @ :50, 75 Kick @ 1:20, 75 Reverse IM, no free @ 1:20)
100 Easy
We took a lot more than 1:00 for rest but stuck with the intervals otherwise.

10 x 100 Up/down kick - 1:30 (:05)
100 Easy
I used fins for this.

4 x 100 @ 1:20, 1:15, 1:10, 1:05
Didn't do too bad with this. Made the first two and then did a 1:12 and 1:08. So, I was only 5 seconds back this time.

300 Cool down

(5200 Total)

    Love it! Congratulations. That's pretty darn early in the year, as well, to have achieved this milestone. I fear I will not hold onto my sponsorship next year, but I hope to be worthy for a Nike swoosh again in 2014.

    C'mon PWB!! There's still almost 4 full month of the year to retain your sponsor!! What do you need to average, 10,000 a day, 7 days a week??

    Myself, I'm hoping I can hit the same 500 milestone by the end of the year. I'm about 120 away, and should, but we'll just have to see.

    Thanks! I'm concerned that these "gifts" from Nike may one day affect my NCAA eligibility since technically, I still have 4 years left to swim on a team. But my professional sponsored swimmer status gives me a lot of street cred.

    I did hit 500 miles a little earlier this year. My goal is 800 and I'm on track for 840 or 850. Sometimes I think I'm overdoing it. But this is the year round swim team I didn't get to do as a kid. As long as I still enjoy knocking out 5K early in the morning, I'll stick with it.
