Well, it's time for the first vacation of the summer. So.... I modified the last several workouts to do "Things I can't/won't do while on Vacation".

Sunday, LCM converted in to SCM - YEAH!
I went to workout mainly just to check the box of coached workout before going on vacation. To my delight they put a bulkhead in the LCM pool so scrambled for the deep end and recruited 2 friends to do our own workout in our own lane.
The main set was
4 x 100's on 3:00 ==>I did them free
100 straight 1:13
50/10/50 1:10
50/10/25/5/25 1:07
4 x 25 5 sec 1:04

4 x dives + break outs
1 at a time and giving feedback

That was fun!

I wasn't very fast on the 100's, but not so far off and not out of control either. I think it's a great place to be for now, and hopefully I can hold on until the fall and improve. I'd like to be 1:07 or :08 on the straight 100, and down to 1:00 or sub on the broken 4 x 25's.
Today I basically did 3 x 100 fast IMs

1:17, 1:16, 1:16

Those were around a bunch of other 100's the lane was doing. Very solid, but i'd like to be even faster. My best ever was recent and a 1:14. That was a serious crankin' it day but we were all doing IMs so I had good racing.

3 x strong 50's, about 1:30ish

The fly was really promising at 33. I haven't been there in awhile and am getting back into it. I'd like to breakthrough later this year, finally getting past the 32/33 mark and going 31's from a push.

I didn't have enough rest to have a snappy back/breast, so those were a bit slower.
In Breckenridge, i'll just do garbage yardage but lots of kick. I think i'm around 23 miiles or so towards the 50 mile club. I can usually do 2 miles each workout, which they use 1800 as a mile.

See you later!!!

    Hi steve!

    No, for the Breck Rec Center 50 mile club you have do the swims there for it to count! That's why it takes so long. I go 2 or 3 times a year, so it will take a while to get to 50 miles!
