Headed to Mason today to get in a short LCM practice. Though I like my regular practice pool just fine, it was a luxury to have 5 digital clocks instead of two (sometimes un-synchronized) pace clocks. Seems to make times and send offs more accurate.
700 variety swim, kick, drill
10 x 100 @ 2:00 w/fins
odds backstroke, staying "long"
evens backstroke kick
I noticed that the 5th set of double lights on the ceiling is the 25 meter mark.
2 x (50 AFAP w/fins from push + 150 EZ)
#1 50 fly, went 28
#2 50 back, went 29
I believe these are the fastest 50s I've ever done in a LC practice. Very happy to see these times. We'll see what I can crank out next weekend at the Terrapin Cup in these events. LC fly is hard. I had to take 4 breaths on the 50 instead of my usual 2 (maybe 3) in SCY.
Planning on a short SCY workout tomorrow. Taking Saturday off and deeking kids and whatnot. Will swim in old Pro on Sunday.
I'm actually feeling more tired than I expected after that short practice. Perhaps there is no easy LC practice ...
Breakfast: yogurt and "bare naked" granola, cantalope, raspberries
Snack on way to swimming: Forgot to bring portable food. Found a balance bar and some Luna energy chews in my swim bag
Lunch: usual salad with the works
Dinner: Salmon, salad w/works, 2 taquitos
