Enjoyed my 7th year of the Turducken this morning. As always many thanks to swimsuit addict for this great set.

200 swim 100 kick 200 pull
4 x 25 on :45 build
Turducken set: A turducken is a turkey that is stuffed with a duck, which in turn has been stuffed with a chicken. Iíve never tasted one, but I feel like Iíve been reading about them as a novelty food item for at least a decade. The latest article I saw about turducken was not about food at all, but about privacy law, and ever since I read it, the word has been rolling around in my head. So I decided I would assemble stroke turduckens by stuffing a 50 of one stroke into the middle of a 100 of another stroke, then sticking the whole thing into a 200 of yet another stroke. I did four rounds of these; on the first, turkey=fly, duck=back, and chicken=breast; the strokes rotate through the IM thereafter. The set looked like this:

4 x 350 @ :30-:40 rest interval
1st 350=100 FL/50 BK/50 BR/50 BK/100 FL
2nd 350=100 BK/50 BR/50 FR/50 BR/100 BK
3rd 350=100 BR/50 FR/50 FL/50 FR/100 BR
4th 350=100 FR/50 FL/50 BK/50 FL/100 FR

On each round I aimed to do the middle 50 at 200 IM pace; the 50 before it as build and the 50 after it as recovery, and the turkey 100s at the front and back at basic aerobic pace.
I added in a 200 loosen before doing a 200 warm down with the team.

Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with a feast at home prepared by my wife, then we traveled to her mom's house and then my brother's for dessert. Lena and I also ran in a 5k Turkey Trot to start off the day.

Today I swam with Tim, Rebecca and Kevin. Larry dropped in from NJ as we all enjoyed today's main course
