I did swim yesterday morning, with the team. but I didn't write down the workout when I first got to work (had an early meeting), and by the time I got to it...I coudn't remember everything.
there were a bunch of little sets, a variety of kicking/pulling/sculling/drilling, plus regular swimming.
I'm guessing I got in about 3100 yards, based on what a guy in my lane said he did (he got in a little more).

this morning I went out for a little spin:
Easy morning spin 31.09 mi 01:41 18.4mph pace

Been focused more on swimming for the past few weeks, going to a meet in Boston next week. But my legs were itching to ride, so I did just a short/easy/flat spin this morning.

after work today I went to Kino for the PM masters swim workout. I was looking for a coach I know...wandered over to the kids' coach, who then pointed out Caleb, a new coach.
400 w/u, done 100 swim/100 kick/100 swim/100 pull
8 x 50 build @ 1:00

main set, 2 rounds (no extra rest between sets):
200 @ 3:00
2 x 100 @ 1:30
4 x 50 @ :45
200 stretch out, on 4:00

10 x 50 kick @ 1:00, done as 2 rounds of:
--build 1 to 3
--hold 4-5

200 w/d

TTL: 3100 yards

I actually did fairly well for the main set, even though it didn't feel too well swimming it. for round one, my times were 200 (2:30), 100s (1:14, 1:13), 50s (all around 37). I took off my drag suit for round 2 (the guy in the next lane put on paddles), and my times got a little faster... 200 (2:28), 100s (1:13, 1:11), 50s (all around 33-35).

we had a decent group, for an evening workout. about 10 swimmers I think, and I had a couple of people similar speed.
Caleb was a good coach, did a great job of calling out times and keeping us on our toes.

I didn't particularly like the workout when it was given, but afterward, I figured it probably was good for me, for my 800 SCM free next week.
