Last night I went to the master's workout at Carthage college and did 3200, mostly freestyle. It felt so much harder and my times were slow... mostly because I was still recovering from the 4000-yard, heavy backstroke, workout from Tuesday.

Today I felt a little better on freestyle during a short (2550 SCY) workout focusing on pace for 4IM. Scotty and I got together at the YMCA for a quick luncth-time workout and here's what we did (my times in parenthesis):

WU (500):
200 fr/pull
200 pull/bk
100 br

MS (2000):
8 x 50 in 4IMO on 1:00 (:44, :48, :43, :43, :57, :58, :43, :40+ = 6:16?!)
100 recovery
4 x 100 in 4IMO on 2:00 (1:35, 1:31, 1:55, 1:28 = 6:29)
100 recovery
4 x 100 in 4IMO on 2:00 (1:37, 1:29, 1:58, 1:29 = 6:33)
100 recovery
8 x 50 in 4IMO on 1:00 (:45, :47, :45, :45, :58, 1:00, :45, :43 = 6:28)
100 recovery

CD: 50 and shower

Recoveries were swam as freestyle with pull buoy. Obviously everything has gotten a little better, more consistent, with the exception of breast... argh! Curse you evilstroke!
