I missed weights last night because I was so tired. Work has been kicking my butt the past few weeks; I lost a key employee last week, who is taking over his family business. I cant blame him and he is a rock star and will do great but it makes life even more challenging for my team. Anyhow, I missed weights and was inn bed asleep before 8pm last night. I had a great nights sleep and did not wake until the alarm went off this morning.

I really enjoyed todays workout despite being quite tired by the end. I had zero discomfort in my left shoulder today for the first time in a couple of weeks and iced again after practice, so fingers crossed whatever I did is on the mend.
We did our 15x100 test set today however I received instructions on how Tom wants me to attack this set going forward. Over the past few months I have got to the point that I cruise all the 100s just making the send offs, until the last 1, where I now go about 58. He told me to start working the set and said I should hold mile pace until the last 3 and then drop to 500 pace. This equates to holding 1.01-1.02s and then dropping to 58-59's. I held 1.02s throughout and went 1 mins on the last 3 which I was happy with.
Todays kick set was awesome. I really worked the kick set and held 35-36s and then held 30s on the back. The broken 200s were fun and exhausting at the same time. My add up times were 1.55 and 1.54. I was doing flip turns as if this was a 200 so it was hard to get exact times on the send offs and as such the add ups could have been off significantly, but based on my start and finish times less the rest I was still happy with these today despits being significantly slower than my swim on Saturday. Despite this I am very happy with these because I was tired and this was at the end of the workout as oppossed to the beginning of the workout.
Overall a very good workout and I had a lot of fun today.
