  1. 8|17|20 SCY

    8 x 50 fr on 3:00, pushed
    30 on most
  2. Monday 8/17/2020

    AM SCY @ LRRC "Arkansas Dolphin Intra-Squad Meet"

    Air Temp: 90
    Pool Temp: 86
    (The conditions were not the best for racing, but you have to go with what you got!)

    300 swim every 4th 25 head-up scull
    4x75 @ 1:10 "Claire Lockridge" pull w/ paddles
    4x50 @ 1:00 FL drill
    4x25 @ :30 V.S. FL

    50 EZ
    35 EZ

    2x50 @ :50 FL @ 200 PACE
    100 EZ

    200 FL - 2:01.24 - 26.85/29.75 (56.59)/31.09/33.56 (1:04.65) - So I put all my eggs in one basket here, shaving and tapering for one race. Also never have I trained LCM and then tapered for a SCY meet (but done it plenty of times the other way around!). But I also have never gotten the chance to swim a 200 FL fresh. The 200 always seemed to fall at the end of a meet, when I was already tired. My goal was to break the 2:00 barrier, and at the 170 yard mark, I was still on target. Alas, the heat finally withered me down the stretch. While it may have kept me from hitting my goal time, it would not deny me a lifetime best. At thirty-five years young, I will take a best time in the 200 yard FL. In a couple months, hopefully I get a chance to race indoors, and I KNOW I can close out those last 30 yards!

    Total: 2100 (including warm-ups and warm-down)
