I heard earlier about Chris Clarke's passing yesterday and my heart goes out to his family(especially his daughter who I know he thought the world of). So so sad and he will be sorely missed.
I had a restless nights sleep last night and woke a couple of times feeling dehydrated and ended up drinking too much which then woke me up later in the night. I was at the pool early and had my warmup done before most people arrived today. I was curious to see if I felt better today which I did. Due to the B/C meet this weekend, the pool was setup for scy.
400 with snorkel
12x50 catchup on 45
8x100 kick on 1:50 descend 1-4, 5-8
9x200 swum as 3 fly on 3:10, 3 back on 2:45, 3 free with snorkel on 2:30
4x(50 fast free, 50 kick, 50 easy all on 1min)
700 breathing 3,5 by 50 concentrating on hand entry
I felt pretty decent today compared to Saturday. On the kick set I descended as instructed and went 1:25,1:22, 1:20, 1:18, 1:26,1:22, 1:21, 1:19 and felt strong. I can honestly say I have not done a 200 fly since being and age grouper and today reinforced why I have not done it since. I only have one speed on fly which makes these very tiring. I held 2:20 on the fly alternating fly and one arm fly by 50. On the back I descended from 2:15 to 2:10 and actually felt good. On the 200 free I descended from 2:10 to 2:05 and again felt pretty good and smooth.
The 4 rounds with the fast 50 I felt fast and strong and went 26,25,25,24 by round. On the kick I was holding 38-40s.
I used the long warm down to really work my hand entry and it's feeling good. I still tend to thumb enter with my right hand but it's definitely better than it was.
