Earlier this afternoon I helped with the high school kids. Spent the first 2/3 of practice with the boys, a group with only a few returning swimmers and many new to the sport. We worked primarily on stroke technique due to their makeup. I got in and helped from the wather for both backstroke and fly. Then I worked with the girls on turns. It is interesting - last year some very strong swimmers graduated, and the current group of fast girls think they are better than the others, even wearing different suits at meets. They need to work on swimming faster (by paying attention to instruction) and helping to mentor the younger kids. Anyways, I logged about 500 yards.

Tonight at Masters I took the main set from Calvin's blog yesterday and modified it ever slightly (we can't all swim at light speed ) and we did:

200 swim/100 Kick/100 Pull/4 x 25 b/c warmup

2 x 150 on 2:30 fast middle 50 (I did 200/150 - 2:19/1:49)
4 x 25 on :30
3 x 100 on 1:40 PULL (I did 4 x on 1:20 with AP)
4 x 50 on :60 (kicked, held :45))
2 x 150 on 2:30 fast middle 50 (I did 200/150 - 2:16/1:46)
4 x 25 on :30
3 x 100 on 1:40 PULL (I did 4 x on 1:20 with AP - held 1:10)

200 lossen and out
(Masters/Rec/2600 yds/55 min)
We also added in some extra rest in the form of Master's minutes, which gave me the gusto to crank a little harder than I might have otherwise. Planning on the One Hour Swim this weekend with the team.

Oh, and I have scheduled the 3rd Annual Monumental Masters Mini Meet for the last Saturday in April (the 26th, I believe), so get your racing suits ready for some fun in southwestern VT!

    Sounds like the fast girls have been taking this a little bit too much to heart...
