Starting to taper it on down for the Auburn meet. Won't taper like I will for Nationals, but still want to be a little rested so I can swim decent times. This week, the plan is not to do anything over 3,000 yards. So far this week, I've gotten in on Tuesday and today. Today, I got in a 1500 yards of drills and a few underwaters with fins. Tuesday's workout is as follows:

Warm-up:

4 x 100 on 1:45 - 75 3 rt/3 lt fly, 25 free

6 x 50 on 1:00 - Did 1,2,5, 6 full-stroke fly; 3,4 were free.

200 freestyle kick

Main sets:

16 x 50 on 1:00 - Did 3 rt/3 lt fly, 25 free

3 rounds of the following:

4 x 25 pull on :45
4 x 25 drill on:45
4 x 25 sprint on 1:00

Round one was back, round two was breast, and round three was free.

2 rounds of the following (no rest between sets)

2 x 25 fly on :45 - only 2 dolphin kicks allowed underwater

2 x 25 fly drill on :45- one pull for 4 kicks

1 x 25 fly all-out

150 easy

3000 SCY

    Lucky you! I wish I was swimming at Auburn over Valentine's weekend instead of Richmond.

    Wish you were coming! It will be good to see your pals at Richmond though.

    Auburn is fun although I can get pretty worn out because it is a "team" meet. Relays and more inidvidual events than I would usually do, but it is fun to be on a team.
