Trying to figure out how to WORK every swim like a race, so that I'm increasing the time I spend at race pace - which is why on the main set I used paddles & then zoomers on sets 2 & 3 - gave myself enough rest that I could then go the second distance hard as well. I wasn't as happy with my swim as I would have liked - the young lady in my lane should have been two or three lanes over - she is plenty fast - but is new to our team & doesn't know the others, so swims with the old ladies I guess because she knows we'll be nice to her - some of the kids are so darn cliquish - it's a shame. She'll probably earn their friendship as she earns their respect by beating them in the meet. Anyway - couldn't keep up with her, but at least she didn't lap me!!
