200 recovery

5 x 50 @ 1:00, "fast" (did them breast, not too fast, right around 42 on all)

5 x 25 on Paul's sendoff, 12.5 burst, cruise to wall

325 recovery & w/d

TTL: 3100 yards

had a smaller group than normal, lanes had 2-3 per lane, 3 in my lane.
I don't normally feel tired from a prior solo swim, but I really worked too hard last night and just didn't have that much left for the team set today.

the first parts (I think the 25s and 50s) were supposed to be with fins. this has been a thing with Paul lately, not sure why or where it came from. but I just swim; I've tried the fin thing for whole sets, and it just makes my legs and/or feet cramp. so I kinda loafed at the back of the lane through most of that (yea going on a 45 interval can be tight, but going 3rd in the lane with some draft wasn't bad)

the 100s @ 2:00 and 50s @ 1:00 weren't necessarily those distances but whatever we wanted to do in those times. I'm guessing 80% of us did 100s/50s, while at least 1 person did 150s on the 2:00 (that would have just been a straight aerobic set for me), and a few did 75 or 50 @ 2:00.

Swim Workouts

    One of SwimSwam's latest tips from coaches was to use fins in warm up. The idea is to de-weight the shoulders and let them get warmed up slowly. It's supposed to reduce injuries. Your legs are probably already fatigued from the biking and running and hence the fin cramps.
