    Bit of a reversal today. Trip wanted to swim at noon to avoid the nasty weather moving into Little Rock this afternoon, and there wasn't enough time for me to lift before the swim.
  2. Tough 100's set!

    Being the selfish mom of the year I am, I dragged my kids out of bed at the crack of dawn today so that I could swim with the Masters team and not just do the workout later. Lucky for me they thought it was a grand adventure. I'm sure my daughter will change her tune someday when she has to do morning practices herself!

    Long one today, with a lot of 100's, but I got the rare chance to swim in the outdoor long course pool, so it was a good workout.

    W/U (1200):

    3x200 sw/k/dr by 200

    6x100 - choose either:
    1) odd swim/ even pull @ 1:40 OR 2) all kick @ 2:05
    *I did the swim/pull option

    Main (3000):

    30x100 @ 2:00

    1 - kick
    2 - pull
    3 - FAST no free
    4 - drill
    5 - FAST free

    The way my coach had me do this was to do as written for rd 1, then on rd 2 drop the kick and replace with easy. Rd 3 - 6 drop the pull and replace with easy. So by the end it's really 2x100 easy, 1 fast, 1 drill/easy, 1 fast. I was averaging 1:09 on the 100's but was able to get to 1:08 on the last one. I did a 100 easy at the end, but you may want to do more warm down.

    Definitely treated myself to a big breakfast after this one...
