Well, I just got my paycheck from work at Tree Top, and it was nice to see my holiday pay for the 2 days of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day on it. The 401K matching and other additions are quite nice too. That means I finally made it past my 90th "work" (not calendar) day. So I'm full-time there now...no getting rid of me "just because" now.

Went for a workout after work today (have to work day shift for a couple days), and tried to hit it hard to get my body into shape for my meet in just over a week. I think I'm basically back in shape where I was before all my out of the water time. My physical job probably keeps my muscles where they need to be, and just a bit of time back in the water was all I needed for the feel to return.

Warmup:

200 Free
200 Kick w/ board
150 Free
150 Kick w/ board
100 Free
100 Kick w/ board
50 Free
50 Kick w/ board
(1000/1000)

Broken Mile Pull w/ Catalyst Paddles:
11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 lengths with :10 rest between each.
Total time minus 2:30 for time.
A few of the times I checked:
275 went 3:15
250 went 2:55
150 went 1:40
100 went 1:06
75 went :49
50 went :31
Total time was 20:40 (minus 1:40) for roughly a 19:00 1650 time. It was pull w/ paddles of course, but still one heck of a set!
(1650/2650)

350 EZ Free
(350/3000)

My first IM/stroke set in a while:
3 x 100 IM @ 2:00
1 x 100 Fly @ 1:15 (went 1:06)
3 x 100 IM @ 2:00
1 x 100 Fly @ 1:15 (went 1:08)
2 x 100 IM @ 2:00
(1000/4000)
That set was good. The fly's really weren't that bad though the 2nd one was a little tough to complete. Actually the first IM after each fly was the hardest part. Minimal rest then push off for more...UGH!!

200 EZ cooldown

--------------------------
4200 Yards


Felt good after this swim. It's just what I needed, and gives me a little more confidence for my fly endurance at the meet.

    Yeah...I did math wrong somewhere. I don't know where I was getting 2:30 (:10 x 15 I think, but why 15?) But it was good.
