3/31 Colony Grant Pool 26 yds
We moved locations until we have our long course pool set up after the school year. The pool we are currently using is poorly measured and darned shallow (2.5 ft) and the shallow end.

Got there late
Mostly breaststroke drill practice.

500 swim
8 x 50 Drill & build, IM Order
6 x 100 free on 1:30, 50 stroke on :50, 100 IM on 1:45

600 pull

3100 yds

I had a tough time with this one both physically and philosophically. I am old enough to have trained with posted work outs and this sure would have been a better workout if we could have done it as:
3 x 100 free descend 1-3 on 1:30
3 x 50 stroke descend
3 x 100 IM descend on 1:45

This would have allowed some of us to swim breaststroke on the stroke interval and focused on quality swims vs. moving into survival mode.
