I wasn't really sure what to expect when I got to the pool this morning. My calves have been smarting ever since the 6K Postal swim on Saturday and my shoulders after yesterday's swim were pretty tight. Still.... a bad day in the pool is better than a good day dry. And, off I went. Here's what I did:

350 Warm-Up
8 x 100 Free on 1:30 (made them all; did 1:22-1:25s)
4 x 200 as 50 Free / 25 Back / 75 Free / 25 Back / 25 Free on 3:45
2 x 450 Free on 7:30
1 x 800 Pull on 12:00
400 Cool-Down
Total Yards - 4050

I was actually pretty happy with today's workout. My calves were very tight and I was really glad to get to the 800 Pull and give my legs a break. Other than that, I opted to do Free w/ a little back instead of full IMs on the 200s and 400s, but added distance to the 400 (went 450s) and made all the intervals. I was really excited to make the 8x100 on 1:30s set. That was a great way to get the workout started.

There is a meet in Louisville this weekend that a few of my teammates are doing. I was planning to swim in it, but I'm just not sure how my legs will hold up. When I try to kick hard in practice (both yesterday and today), my calves start twinging like mad. Guess we'll see how the sprints go in tomorrow's practice before actually signing up - or letting people know I won't be going. Since the online entry deadline isn't until Friday, I figure waiting one more day won't hurt.

That's it for now... enjoy your swims!
