6 x 50, 25 fast + 25 EZ @ 1:10
-- I did 4 of these fast, cruised 2

12 x 75, 15 m fast + restricted breathing 45 m + 15 m fast @ 2:00

100 EZ

4 rounds:
1 x 50 fast @ 1:00
1 x 50 EZ @ 2:20

I really enjoyed following along periodically with the live stream at nationals. And I heard there was an ice tub instead of a hot tub on deck, which seems like a great idea. Felt a bit nostalgic not being there. But my first comeback times in the 50s held up well against the onslaught. It looks like three will be #1 in my age group (fly, back, breast) and one (free) will be #2. In any event, I had a great mother's day at home. My oldest child got engaged to a wonderful woman. And my daughter drove all the way to Pittsburgh to surprise me. I'm taking today off (maybe a few drylands while she's on the treadmill) because she's visiting me.

    No actual ice in the cold tub, but it was punishingly cold. I couldn't stand to be in it. One of my teammates used it after several of his events, though, and thought it was helpful. He has gone a few times for that super-cold cryotherapy, too.
