Each of the last two Saturdays I've managed to get in for a distance day. Last Saturday I did 30 x 200 on 3:20... which was pretty brutal at the end.

Yesterday I swam the 6000 breaking it into three 30 or 40 minute segments, thus:

I. 9 x 200 on 3:20 (alternated free/pull; desc. the frees)

1:00 rest

II. 3 x thru:
--3 x 200 fr on 3:10 (2:50-2:59)
--1 x 200 pull on 3:20

:30 rest

III. 6 x 200 on 3:20 (alt. free/pull--try to hold 3:00 for frees, DPS the pulls)
1 x 500 bk on 10:00 (EZ)
100 fr cool-down

    Yikes. Nice work. You must have a lot of life stress to burn off!

    Hey, nothing like bunches of 200s at tempo for melting away the stress!

    For sure. I know that there are better/more-efficient ways to improve my 200 race times, but there is a great sense of satisfaction and stress melting in completing a set of 200s on a relatively tight interval.
