I did make it out to bike today, but I putzed around, got caught up in some work, and before I knew it I didn't leave until 10am. the nice thing is that is pretty much the best time of day right now to ride. awesome weather, traffic wasn't too bad, and I got a little sun. just under 45 miles.


after work, I went over to the gym pool. I did a rare workout poach, this time from jbs from yesterday:

except I didn't write down any intervals. so I pretty much went on feel...

400 w/u (did 75 free/25 breast)

4 x 125 @ 2:05, w/a 25 breast in each (started on last 25, last on 2nd 25)
500 @ 6:40 (finished in 6:25)
4 x 100 @ 1:45
400 @ 5:10 (finished just under 5:00)
4 x 75 @ 1:20
300 @ 4:00 (finished around 3:42)
4 x 50 @ 1:00
200 @ 2:40 (finished around 2:23)
4 x 25 @ :45
100...whatever I had left (I remembered his time of 1:07, set that as my reach goal and actually made it!)

300 w/d

TTL: 3700 yards

this set was deceptively difficult. before I went I thought how I'd mix in a bunch of breast, use some of my toys, maybe kick, etc.
but after that 400, well the first 100 was just recovery, and that's pretty much how the rest were too, with maybe a slight descend.
interesting how my times (well other than the 500) were pretty similar to his. he just needs to take a swim-cation out here and swim with our team sometime

oh, and I have no idea how he did just 100 w/d. after my fast 100, I felt like I was gonna die, and I needed every bit of that 300 before I felt ok.

    Great job on the set! Particularly that 1:07 at the end!

    And my 100 cold down was mixed with a bit of standing around and socializing
