Enjoying Day #2 of my "weekend". I have my two days off for the week in the middle, that way I'm available for the whole weekend. Plus the following week, it looks like we'll be running both lines, so I'll probably be working all 7 days of the week or more! $$$$$

I'll be missing the Bainbridge Island meet this coming weekend. I try to head over to Seattle every October for this meet as I can generally get some pretty good competition in my races, but not this time. (Kirk, this means you have to win the 500 this year).


Warmup:

1000 Free - descend the last 500 by 100s
I was breathing pretty hard by the end of this
(1000/1000)

10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00
(500/1500)

3 x 300 Free Pull @ 4:00 (Desc. 1-3 went 3:42, 3:36, 3:29) It was nice to get back to a 1:10 pace on something again
(900/2400)

Kick Set
All SDK on back w/ short fins:
"8 x 150s" @ 2:30 as:
  • 100 @ 1:55, 50 @ :35
  • 100 @ 1:50, 50 @ :40

  • 100 @ 1:25, 50 @ 1:05
  • 100 @ 1:20, 50 @ 1:10

(1200/3600)
Originally I didn't know where I was going, or what I was planning with this set as I pushed off at the beginning. The set just sort of materialized as I went...and kept getting longer and longer.
The 50s at the beginning were tough, then the middle portion became a good workout on both distances, then at the end I had to push the 100s, and float recovery on the final 50s. Turned out to be a good set.

100 EZ

8 x 25 (Odds Fly 200 Pace w/ 2up 1 down breathing, Evens Free cruise) @ :30

    Yeah, WTF, James? Only sprinters kick that much.

    Nice workout.

    Nice workout.
    I guess that I've still got a little bit of the age grouper blood leftover. I'll try not to let it happen again!

    Quite possibly. It's nice to be able to have a "go-to" kick when needed near the end of a race.
