I had a day off from work on Tuesday, so my father and his friend and I got a lot more work done in the house rebuild. The upstairs bathroom is coming together now. The sewer plumbing is just about all in, including the air vents. This is tricky because we have to incorporate all the future changes in the downstairs bathroom area when that comes. The walls should be getting framed in the next day to two, and then the floor goes down after that. Woohoo!! We're still a long way off from finished product though.

Last night:
1st part of my swim was done with 2 others, a mother/daughter swimming combo from Wintrop...a small town about 2 hours north of here. They're not super fast swimmers, but they know what competitive swimming is all about, so no problem circling. Turns out the daughter has applied and been accepted to Linfield where I went, and will be going down to visit the coach soon. I told her to tell him she was swimming laps with me.

Working around the others, with lots of talking in between:
300 Free (either in 50s or 100s)
10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00-1:30ish
4 x 50s Free cruise @ whatever

50s of SDKing w/ short fins and some fast 25s Fly (was asked to, they wanted to see my fly)

10 x 50 Free Pull @ :45 (holding :31/:32s)

At this point I was able to break away into an open lane on my own, so I took the opportunity.

12 x 75 IM Rotation @ 1:15 (was going ~1:00s, except for the BA,BR,FR was a bit slower)
3 times thru:
That was my first IM set in a while, and boy was I rusty. My backstroke actaully hurt my shoulder more than other strokes which was weird. Backstroke is a stroke for weird folks though.

12 x 75 Free Pull @ Desc. Interval
Twice thru: 1:15, 1:10, 1:05, 1:00, :55, :50
The :50 interval was a turn 'n burn on the first time through. 2nd round I gave more effort and finished in :47.
My shoulder doesn't hurt with Freestyle pulling w/ paddles. It's weird, but I guess my stroke technique is good or something. Just don't make me do pushups!

4 x 25 Fly, Odds cruise, Evens fast @ :30

100 EZ and out
4000 Yards
