It was semi-crowded in the pool today, 3 lap lanes available, and we ended up with 3 swimming in each lane. The normal 4th lap lane against the wall was occupied by a handicapped person who needed it because of the chairlift that is attached to that side of the pool. I still got in a good amount of swimming, getting a lane with 2 others who know how to circle swim, just not as fast as me.
500 Flutter Kick w/ board
500 Free Pull w/ Catalyst paddles
6 x 50 Flutter Kick fast w/ board @ 1:00 (:45s)
4 x 50 Fly 1-arm drill @ 1:00, just going through the motions to test my shoulder
8 x 50 Fly (80% effort) @ about 1:00-1:30 interval. Was just resting enough to be ready to go again. The last one I went hard on and did a :30.
Last night I sent in my entries for the Apple Capital USAS Meet from May 30-June 1. It's the first LCM meet of the season here in the Inland Empire, and only 2 miles away. One other masters swimmer that I know of from Bellevue is swimming as well, but only because his daughters are coming over. We tend to get a few adults swimming in this meet, most of them being coaches from the Seattle teams.
I'm doing the 400 Free/400 IM on Friday, 100 Free, 50 Fly, 200 Fly on Saturday, and the 200 Free, 100 Fly, 200 IM on Sunday. Not quite as "gung-ho" as I usually do, but I don't really need to kill myself...this is my "Michael Phelps comeback meet".
