It was semi-crowded in the pool today, 3 lap lanes available, and we ended up with 3 swimming in each lane. The normal 4th lap lane against the wall was occupied by a handicapped person who needed it because of the chairlift that is attached to that side of the pool. I still got in a good amount of swimming, getting a lane with 2 others who know how to circle swim, just not as fast as me.

500 Free
500 Flutter Kick w/ board
500 Free Pull w/ Catalyst paddles

6 x 50 Flutter Kick fast w/ board @ 1:00 (:45s)
4 x 50 Fly 1-arm drill @ 1:00, just going through the motions to test my shoulder

8 x 50 Fly (80% effort) @ about 1:00-1:30 interval. Was just resting enough to be ready to go again. The last one I went hard on and did a :30.

100 EZ

2500 Yards

Last night I sent in my entries for the Apple Capital USAS Meet from May 30-June 1. It's the first LCM meet of the season here in the Inland Empire, and only 2 miles away. One other masters swimmer that I know of from Bellevue is swimming as well, but only because his daughters are coming over. We tend to get a few adults swimming in this meet, most of them being coaches from the Seattle teams.

I'm doing the 400 Free/400 IM on Friday, 100 Free, 50 Fly, 200 Fly on Saturday, and the 200 Free, 100 Fly, 200 IM on Sunday. Not quite as "gung-ho" as I usually do, but I don't really need to kill myself...this is my "Michael Phelps comeback meet".

    For anyone else, your Apple Capital line up would be a big lineup, but, yes, for you, this is Phelpsian. Are you sure you'll be happy bypassing both the 800 and the 1500?

    you aren't going to the "I really need to get high shakes" when the 800 or 1500 comes up and you aren't signed up?

    No guys, I'll be JUST FINE this time around without the 800 or the 1500. They are later in the day on Friday evening, and I'll be gone by then (or at work if I have to work that day and not swimming anything). I have another chance in July to swim the 800 and/or 1500 Free at the 2nd home LCM meet. I can also do one then, and then another at the LSC Champs meet too. Ahhhhh...nice to have options! I'm just not going to kill myself this time.
