Swim/SCY/Solo @ Pitt
6 x 50 scull/drill w/agility paddles @ 1:05
12 x 25 shooters w/fins @ :40 -- I did an actual back shooter for the first time in months!
8 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
6 x (25 AFAP + 75 EZ) @ 3:00
-- relieved to see that my times were about the usual on these
6 x (50 AFAP + 150 EZ)
-- fly (23 high), breast (28), fly-back (24), 3 x kick (25+s)
-- these times weren't too bad either, but technical execution was way off
8 x 50 DPS free w/paddles @ 1:00
Finally swam in a nice pool today -- Pitt -- for the first time since June. Deep, cool, digital clocks everywhere. Ahhhh ... Also tried doing some real AFAP work for the first time in awhile. I felt pretty discombobulated. My breakouts were also atrocious. Shallow pools create bad habits, I guess. Unfortunately, that was the only decent part of the day. Lil Fort is not adapting well. The magnitude of change is great -- new city, new house, new school, new everything. She had her first XC race today with her middle school team. She tried to refuse to race and claimed she didn't feel well. Her coaches (who are great) somehow jollied her into it and she did win. I was worried she was going to tank it on purpose. So there is no happiness in mommy land right now. I think it's going to take a looong time. I'm not sure how focused I'll be on training until she's more settled.
