That was a ton of long course kicking and my quads are a bit sore. I was actually pleasantly surprised with my times on the aerobic kick sets. I'm not usually a descender, and I was not in great distress. I was especially surprised to crank out a couple pretty fast 50 kicks at the very end of practice. I guess I am in better shape than usual with all the long course training. Although I definitely just have more leg endurance than swim endurance. Hope everyone is having a great day!
