13:00 to 14:30 at the Swim Center in Röthelheimbad (LCM) on my own.
600 free - alternate 100 free swim/50 free drill
6x100 free on 2:00 - descend by 2s - Went 1:55, 1:55, 1:52, 1:51, 1:47, 1:47
4x50 free on 1:00 - build with strong 6 beat kick - Went :55s
2x50 free all out on 2:00 - Went ~:41s
4x100 on 2:30 in IM order - Wow, backstroke goes on forever and ever. This is about the point at which the young age groupers jumped in next to me and proceeded to lap me in all four strokes!:-(
I felt stronger in the pool today than on Wednesday, so that's good. But it will take a few weeks to get some endurance back! The one thing I noticed today, is that I can really concentrate on getting a good catch. I worked on trying to feel some acceleration with each catch and pull. It's nice to get into a rhythm.
