I slept heavy last night and despite waking twice I felt pretty good when I woke for practice. I got a text from my coach that he made it back forms TAGS at 1am and would not be on deck this morning. Instead he texted me the workout which was mainly easy aerobic sets.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup drill on 1min
6x100 kick on 2:20 descend 1-3,4-6
4x200 descend 1-4 on 3mins
8x50 drill swim by 25 on 1:10
8x25 open,close,easy,fast on :45
100 double arm back
The kick felt pretty strong and was going 1:45,1:40,1:35 on the descends. The first 2x200s I pulled(no paddles) and the last two I swam. I was 2:37,2:33,2:28,2:24 on these and felt ok(strong but not easy). The open,close and fast I upped the temp a little holding 15 on the fast and 16-17s on the open and close 25s. Less than one week to go now. I swim around 4:30pm next Sunday in the third fastest heat of the 800(based on entry times). This is late for me but by the looks of things this will be my latest swim. Can't wait.
