    Struggled through the workout I had planned. I decided to work on 12.5 sprints at the last minute.

    400 Swim (6 Beat flutter kick)
    200 Kick BR
    400 IM Drill

    4 X (4 X 50s) on 1:00
    FL/BK
    BK/BR
    BR/FR
    FR/FL

    4 X 12.5 Sprints from push
    Experimented with SDK/Breakout
    3 Kicks seems best

    4 X 12.5 Sprints Flag to flag

    200 Warm down

    Another really sluggish day at the pool. I concentrated really hard to avoid the dreaded crossover kick. I had planned to conduct "time trials" today, but neither of the decent pools in town was available. I decided to swim a moderate workout instead...I'll try again tomorrow

    400 Swim
    200 Kick
    400 Pull

    5 X 100s on 1:30 holding 1:15
    5 X 100s BR Kick on 2:00

    1 X 400 IM Drill

    100 Warm Down

    September 14, 2008 - Time Trial Day!!!

    So I finally had a chanced to swim at one of the competition pools today. I had cool water and a wide lane to myself...what a luxury. My fiance was not able to time me, but there were some other masters swimmers who were happy to help (at least for the fly and free) I made the mistake of asking permission to use the blocks and got the liability speech (note to self: It is easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission) Consequently, my swims were from a bulkhead dive. Here's how I did it:

    Warm up
    200 FR
    200 Pull
    200 IM
    100 FL Drill
    100 BK Drill
    100 BR Drill
    100 FR Drill

    8 X 25 Each stroke on :45 (Worked SDK/Breakout (or pullout)on evens)
    3:00 Rest
    50 Yard Time Trial

    Results:

    50 FL: 27.5
    50 BK: 31.0
    50 BR: 32.5
    50 FR: 23.4

    Notes:
    Fly start was really slow...should have practiced a couple bulkhead starts.
    Back and breast are approximate since I timed myself.
    Took 3 fast SDKs on free start and turn, might have been able to get away with 4.
    Felt really good about the times (except for BK), especially since I just started sprinting in workouts.
    I need to get someone to look at my bk. Something feel really wrong about it.
    BR feels strong, but timing is off.

    I'll do this again in 2 weeks.
