Another morning of being a little ambitious and getting to the pool in the morning early. On these days if I want to swim before working on the house with my dad, I have to get done before 8:00am. That's when the water aerobics class takes over the whole pool! At my Y, you either swim before 8am, or after 9am. Never arrive at 5:30am...those people are crazy psychos with "lane ownership" problems. I got in one of "their" lanes one day, and she just about had a fit! hehehe


1000 Free
The first 500 of this was really slow and all my muscles hurt...probably from not resting enough overnight...after that though, I began building to a strong pace by the end of it.

10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00

4 Rounds:
  • 150 Free Pull @ 1:55
  • 125 Free Pull @ 1:35
  • 100 Free Sprint (no toys) @ 2:00 (went 1:06/1:05/1:05/1:04 by rounds)

The trick to this is swimming the 125 fast enough that you have time to get the paddles and buoy off before the sendoff. If you're lucky you have enough time for another breath before leaving!

100 EZ Back

36 x 25 Flutter Kick w/ board @ :30 (held them under :25s)

100 Free

4000 Yards, and timed it perfect with the 8:00 onslaught of water aerobic junkies!


I almost was going to sign up for the short course meter meet in Anacortes this Sunday, but I'm going to have to work...and it'll be overtime as well, so that'll be approximately 20 hours OT on this week's paycheck. Not bad. If I was off, I'd be over to the west side for a little SCM chlorine action though. Good luck to KNelson and That Guy though!!
