Kind of a "late" swim for me. Usually I try to get to the Y sometime between 9 and 11, but at least it wasn't crowded. I had a lane to myself, besides the main set portion which at least I was sharing with another competent swimmer/tri-guy who does flipturns, and has swimming skillz.


Long Warmup:

600 Free
500 Free Pull
400 IM - went 5:20 on this, not sure why I checked it, but I did. Only the fly and free felt good
300 SDK w/ short fins on back
200 IM
100 Free
(2100/2100)

Main Set: Fun with "odd length swims"

2 x 225 Free Pull @ 3:00 (went 2:40ish)
2 x 175 Free Pull @ 2:15 (went 2:05s)
2 x 125 Free Pull @ 1:30 (went 1:25s) I had to move it here
2 x 75 Free Pull "cruise" @ 1:00
4 x 25 Free Pull @ :20 (went :15/:16s)
(1300/3400)

Kick Set w/ short fins:

200 SDK on back @ 3:00
150 SDK on back @ 2:30
100 SDK on back @ 1:30
50 SDK on back @ :30 (went :32) this is tough to do at the end of a practice vs. the beginning
(500/3900)

100 EZ and out

    I like it how you've 'scaled back' and you're still kicking my GTD butt each day. Nice workout.

    Thanks Patrick. It feels so good to get in the pool, moreso to relax my muscles after the prior nights work. But after I get warmed up and a little looser, I still have that drive to crank away! You've got your 400 IM, I've got my 200 Fly as my "go to event". I just have to keep in shape should the chance arise for me to actually make it to a meet. I'm really hoping for a chance to get down to my college for the Alumni Meet, but I don't think my work will give me the chance.
