2000M F, S
6 each starts from the block
- without breakouts
3 each practice forward start sequences, without actually starting
2 x 50M free on 2:00, 1 breath each
- easy sprint - high 30's
The two blocks available at this pool are temporary and removable - bolted together with 2 x 4 lumber - LOL, but they get the job done (sorta). One is too high and has a sharp leading edge, the other one (that I prefer) wobbles fore and aft. The final practiced start resulted in left hip pain. I was too zealous for both me and the block, and my trailing leg kicked up too high overextending the hip. Just a minor pull, with most of the inflammation gone hours later, but I have got to be more careful leading up to meets.
