I felt really good in the water this morning, felt like I could keep going. the water was a little chilly when I first got in and it took me about 300 before I felt warmed up. maybe with the daytime high temps getting warm (mid/upper 80s) they could have cut the heater.

I can't remember the last time that I've done any fly without fins. I've been on a quest to do at least 50 of all strokes during a real workout (not a gym warm-down). I was glad I saved the finless fly and back for the end. years ago I told myself that someday I'd like to do a 400 IM at a meet; still a lofty goal, but I still want to do it (I certainly wouldn't break any records, but want to just legally finish).

I needed a good set like this after a rather lackluster swim at the gym pool yesterday afternoon. I just wasn't into it, ended up doing a 2000 straight swim, a little kicking, pulling, warmdown, then got out. it is rare that I don't feel better after a workout than before, but I guess it does occasionally happen (well other than injury).
