It's all about speed now

A friend pointed out that there is just 37 days left until Nationals and that it is time to get very event-specific. She's got that right! In looking over my training, I can see that I have not worked on speed enough lately. Time to get to it!
Today, I did a workout of 2700 yards using the fins most of the time. I'm a little pressed for time, so I'm not going to put the whole workout down. One of the sets was 4 rounds of 3 x 75 on 1:15 with fins. With each round, I mixed up the order of the 75s, doing a 75 fly, 75 free, and 75 dolphin kick on back each time. Really tried to work the walls. SCY is about the walls and LC is about the swimming. I stink with the walls, so this is my chance to work them.
I like swimming solo on this type of stuff because I can really focus and I don't have to worry about hitting somebody coming off the wall. I think swimming solo will really allow me to work on some quality stuff.
