Not able to swim until 6am due to some heat lightning. Been having a lot of rain last day or two. I was still able to swim what I planned, which was an extended warm up rather than a workout.

Swam with Eduardo. Water temp was good.

Warm Up [1400/1400]
600 swim
4 x 150 as 50 dr, 50 k, 50 sw
4 x 50 build

Set 1 [500/1900]
3 x 100 on 1:30 @1500 pace
- I shed my drag suit, and had my Speedo Endurance (too tight) jammers on. Did 1:13, 1:13, 1:15. My target pace is 1:15 or better. These were easier, and I swam faster, than just a couple of days ago.

200 easy

Set 2 [600/2500]
4 x
50 on 1:00 easy/drill
50 on 1:00 smooth/pace
200 easy

Set 3 [200/2700]
4 x 50 on 1:30
25 fast, 25 easy

Warm down [200/2900]
200 easy

Also stretched for about 15 minutes in the gym.

Felt pretty decent in the water. Resting yesterday (just did some stretching) seemed to help. Swimming without the drag suit also helps. I figure it may slow me down about 1 sec/50M in my workout swims.
