Monday recap: I kicked it all!
It was a build a bunch of stuff up to 4 x 200's, so I just kicked it as fast I could on the swim interval with Speedo optimus fins (medium length).

Today:
The main set was
8 x 25 kick/drill/swim/easy :30 fly and back sets; :35 for breast
200IM 4:00

repeat 3 times, all 8 x 25's of one stroke for each round; no free set.

IMs:
2:59 2:53 2:46

I was pretty happy with this set. I had enough in the tank that the 2:46 wasn't too bad. It was hard, but I felt well in control. I was 1:20 at the 100 so that means I was 1:26 on the way back, and that seems a good split. I feel quite confident that I can be at the 2:40 barrier in a meet!

Still can't decide what to swim at the Ron John. 100 fly and 100 IM for sure. They are the first events I would consider each day. The rest I may pick based on how well I can recover to max the events instead of which ones I am actually better at.

    I haven't compared the order of events to last year; maybe it's the same and it's just my mindset, but it seems like a hard OOE to work with.
