We had a sprinkling of snow overnight, so I enjoyed walking through some crunchy untrampled whiteness on my way to Riverbank this morning. You gotta get up early in this town to do that! I shared a lane with Rondi and a rotating cast of one or two other swimmers. Hereís what I did:
1200 lcm warmup
5 x 500, FR with traveling 2 x 50 back:
- 50 BK / 400 FR / 50 BK
- 50 FR / 50 BK / 300 FR / 50 BK / 50 FR
- 100 FR / 50 BK / 200 FR / 50 BK / 100 FR
- 150 FR / 50 BK / 100 FR / 50 BK / 150 FR
- 200 FR / 100 BK / 200 FR
6 x 100 K/S, kicks moderate, swims fastish, odds flutter/FR, evens dolphin/BK
500 warmdown + play
I felt good in the water today, and powerful on my freestyle. Iím finally get back into good enough shape that I feel like I can control my pacing on longer pieces, adding some surges when I want to, rather than just trudging through them.
Fun fact of the day: The Super Bowl and I are the same age! (At least in yards). I canít believe itís taken me XLVIII years to realize this.
