I was startled with 20 meters to go by a bright flash of lightning close at hand, so I finished the 100 and got out. I was supposed to finish with 2x100 @ 1:10, 1:10 REST, 100 @ 1:05.

    Thunder started rumbling as soon as I finished my 500 warm up. By the time I finished the third 500 descend, I was being asked to exit the pool. Had a long workout planned, and felt really good on the 500s. Oh well.

    I have had several misfires at this set over the past 18 months, trying to make it all on 1:05. Maybe last week coming right off taper I could have done it. But the water was warm, and I have lost that "invincible" training feeling when your taper hasn't quite worn off yet. I am back to normal, and therefore 1:10 provided me just the right effort level. I stayed in the low RED range, and averaged 1:05s on all the 100s @ 1:10.

    SHOUT OUT: Patrick Brundage, Kurt Dickson, and Stewart Carroll. They did it first :P
