Next day of the taper, getting ready for the meet this weekend. Today's focus was on moderate swimming with technique, and some fast swimming in last quarter of the race.
Swam with Eduardo, Sheila, and Lisa S.
Water temp was decent, the aerator was running.

Warm up [1200/1200]
600 choice
4 x 150 drill, kick, swim by 50
This is a common meet warm up I do, then I do some build 50s and some pace swims. I'll extend my warm up the next couple of days so its more like my meet warm up.

Set 1 [1800/3000]
1 x 300 on 5:00 as pull (no paddles) with snorkel
3 x 200 on 3:30 as 150 swim, 50 fast
- went 2:32 - 35
1 x 300 on 5:00 pull w/ snorkel
3 x 100 on 1:45 as 75 swim, 25 fast
- went 1:15s
1 x 300 on 5:00 pull w/ snorkel
6 x 50 kick on 1:15

Set 2 [400/3400]
100 easy
6 x 50 1:15 choice easy/fast
- went 32's on #2 and #4. No time on the last one as Coach Li was standing in front of the clock. I think it must have been about a 28.

200 easy warm down [200/3600]

Will continue to cut back tomorrow, with and emphasis on pace swimming for the 1500 and 400. I'll attempt to focus on those races, since they are the first events each day. I tend to do better in the longer distances, although I have difficulty with that last half of the 1500. I do OK in the 800-1000, but that extra 500 or so is tough.
