Mother Nature is playing tricks on us again. Nearly a full week of temps in the 70's, and she pulls a fast one last night and drops it to 28 degrees. Of course pool management decided that meant the pool had to be warmer, so we got to have 85 degree water. Fortunately the people from Premier were not allowed in their pool (if it's colder than 40 they won't open the pool) so I had this fast guy, Chuck, to spur me on [to greatness] hahaha. When I was doing 1:20's, he was doing them on the 1:15 and holding a 1:10. I comfort myself with the facts: a) he is a MAN, and b) he is only 45. Plus, I had done 2200 before he even got in, so I was more tired, right? (Why don't I feel better?)When I did my 200 easy at the end, he did one all out & did a :58 from a push. Most impressive.

1000 warm-up (100 free, 25 back/breast repeat)
3 x 300 Pull w/50 breast between each, first one no paddles
2 x 100 easy
400 kick

2 x 100 "IM" @ 1:30
3 x 100 @ 1:20
4 x 100 back/free w/zoomers @ 1:25
5 x 100 @ 1:20
100 easy
4 x 100 kick @ 2:00
3 x 100 @ 1:20
2 x 100 "IM" @ 1:30
200 easy
Total: 5200 SCY
