I enjoyed a quiet day off for the New Year with the family [the new Sherlock on PBS was great last night] and prepared for Masters practice this morning, after grabbing breakfast with my son. With our max time of 90 minutes I have been talking up 50 x 50's and we had a good crew come out today. I brought some tunes to play during the swim to keep everyone on track, and Greg was the keeper of the tally...

200 swim/100 kick/100 pull
2 x 25 drill [things to think about during the swim]

50 x ? on 1 minute
[all choice, 25/50/75, drill or toys optional]
I did 30 x 75s, 20 x 50s for a total of 3250 yds

200 loosen and out [I did 300]
[Masters/Rec/4000 yds/75 min]

A great challenge set for our group as the main set is over what we typically swim in an hour's practice, and everyone made it! I swam with Greg and Robert, Meg and Kevin were in the middle lane, and Rachel and Melissa were in the far near lane (remember that the Rec is a 6 lane pool set with just two lines). I used the snorkel, pulled and used Agility Paddles along with some stroke 25's during the 75's, and kicked and full strokes during the 50's. Everyone did a great job counting down the number of swims and encouraging each other throughout, and the crew surprised me with a card and gift after the swim. It's amazing how much swimming with the team pushes me to swim more and I think that it helps others to do the same. I am really proud that we all rocked this challenge, and am looking forward to seeing how everyone does with the One Hour Swim at the end of the month.
