Nice to sleep in a bit this morning, then head to Masters practice after a delightful raspberry smoothie. The guard was a few minutes late, so Greg, Kevin, and I took a quick sauna before practice. The dry-erase boards that I write workouts on were found, and I skipped the planned one for today when I saw the hybrid stop-watch workout from just before shut-down and thought it would be fun to do again. Note that Vanna White was not available, but we have a satisfactory replacement here in SoVT:
So the sets are predetermined, but the number of reps is not. Since I don't have the time to make a full stop-watch plan out, we just used Greg's watch and the hundredth spot to determine that. I was able to sneak in an extra 50 kick before heading into the main set of 9 x 100 and 61 x 25's! I did 150s's, and announced some mercy for the crew IF we could all descend #4-6 of the 100's. I did them as 100 IM into 50 Free, and went 2:05, 2:00, 1:55, joining them in success and dropping the 25's to just 50. We had to move the last 8 to :30 in order to complete the set on time, and we got out just at noontime.

A fun workout! I got home in time to help the girls with peeling apples (from our yard) in preparation for pies, which we devoured tonight. I also finished digging the potatoes up, and picked some grapes. Not a good year for grapes, but these seasons happen. After mowing the lawn I was able to join my neighbor for a motorcycle ride, capping a busy day.
