Only a half an hour available to me today. Work at home on the house was cut short since we'd finished the concrete work in the basement and need it to cure for a few days before doing some more in that area. I had to go to work early as well, so that's where I had a perfect 1/2 hour available to hit the pool, pull a PWB, shower and get to my job. Luckily, t-shirt and jeans works for my job. I couldn't stand having to put on a suit and tie daily. YUCK! I don't even know if I can tie a tie anymore either.

500 Free warmup
(500/500)

Main Set (get right to it and go):

2 Rounds of:
  • 150 @ 2:00 (125 Free, 25 Fly)
  • 125 @ 1:40 (100 Free, 25 Fly)
  • 100 @ 1:20 (75 Free, 25 Fly)
  • 75 @ 1:00 (50 Free, 25 Fly)
  • 50 @ :40 (25 Free, 25 Fly)
  • 25 @ :20 (25 Fly)
  • 75 EZ @ 2:00 gasping for breath the whole way

(1200/1700)

200 Free cruise till lap swim was over. Not bad for 1/2 hour!

----------------------------
1900 Yards

The main set was a good one. I think of it as good training for the 200 Fly. All endurance, with the fly at the end to make you work it when you're tired. As the set goes on, the fly gets more and more frequent. Fun times in my sick little world.


1.58 miles (= 2,783 yards, = 2,545 meters) to next milestone (500 miles milestone).
Looks like I may get to 500 Miles after all!! Hopefully this Saturday will do it for me!

    Yeah, I think you're going to make it to 500!

    I'm going to have to work for it:

    putting on a tie is like riding a bike. You don't forget. I need to learn how to do a bowtie! Of course, I have no reason to wear one yet.

    Yeah, for this year it'll be possible. Definitely helped swimming with the age groupers every day the past year until the end of July. That's where I built up my strong base. I knew swimming on my own would be tougher, and the GTD meter was gradually catching me throughout the past few months.

    Next year...I'm thinking a 300 mile goal will be more realistic with my training schedule. I can always "throw in" 200 extra miles on Dec. 31st to retain my Nike sponsor, right?

    When I was doing life insurance sales in Oregon years ago, I'd have to get dressed up for our weekly formal meetings (not sure why), but I did a tie back then. It's just been about 10 years since I've tied one...and I know I could hop on my bike and ride without issues, so bad comparison.
