Swim/SCY @ Pitt

Warm up:

400 various
8 x 50 w/paddles @ :55
8 x 50 kick @ 1:05
50 EZ

Main sets:

16 x 25 @ :30, odds = fast kick
Huh ... hard pass. Just didn't get how this could actually be done on that interval and didn't want to do a 400 kick. Instead, I did 12 x 25 odds fast back kick (15 m UW) @ :40-:45 trying to stay out of the way of my lane mates who were barely making the interval. Went 15s on backstroke kick.
1:00 rest
1 x 50 fast kick @ 1:00
-- went :32 backstroke kick from a push. happy with that
1 x 50 EZ @ 2:00 (not enuf recovery for me ... legs full of lactic acid)

16 x 25 swim @ :30, odds = fast
Huh, well this time I put on fins to make the interval. Did the odds @ 100 pace, IM order. Tiring ... but times were good.
1:00 rest
1 x 50 fast sprint @ 1:00
-- I was too tired to do this without more recovery. Did a 25 fast fly (:10) & cruised a 25
1 x 50 EZ @ 23:00

16 x 25 kick @ :45, odds = fast
-- did 10 of these, going :15s on back kick, cruised the last 6 x 25s to rest, getting gassed
1:00 rest
1 x 50 fast kick (did a 25 fast shooter with fins, 10 flat, + 25 EZ) @ 1:00
1 x 50 EZ @ 2:00

16 x 25 swim @ :45, odds = fast
-- I did 14 @ 100 pace, IM order, cruised free on #8 & 12
1:00 rest
1 x 50 fast swim (did a 25 fast of something or other + 25 EZ)
200 EZ

Total: 3300

Ouch, that workout, despite being mostly 25s, was deceptively hard. Despite skipping some bits, I did a ton of fast 25s kicking and swimming and 25s @ 100 pace along with the one all out 50. My legs feel like rocks today. I'm going to do an EZ swim at BP and beg Mr. Fort for a massage. I may take an epsom salt bath as well ...

Whew, that was a whiney blog post! I think I'm going to need to do more regular body work if I keep training this hard. I got a massage from Mr. Fort and it was exceedingly painful.
