After a busy weekend of work and then activities at church, I was happy to get out of work early today and rest a bit at home before a swim this evening. The pool was a bit crowded so I was not able to get in what I had planned, but I was able to do ...

200 Fr/200 IM drill
200 kick

2 x
- 4 x (3 x 25 on traffic:, as sprint, sprint, easy, the 2 fast IMO)
- 200 Pull with buoy fast

200 loosen and out
(Solo/Rec/1800 yds/40 min)

I was able to get a 2 mile jog in on Saturday night, and I have been a little sore from the open water adventures last week. I'm looking forward to the Baystate Games this coming weekend at Springfield College in Mass. I am signed up for just Saturday, doing:
400 Free
400 IM
100 Back
50 Free

Out to be an interesting day, befitting my first ever LCM meet. I haven't been very consistent with training over the past few months (and haven't been in a long course pool since last summer), but I am looking forward to the challenge of LCM! The 400 free swims around noon, and then the rest of the meet starts at 4:30 - I plan to use the 400 IM as an extended cooldown/warmup before the 100 back.

Edit: found the psyche sheets here.

    my first ever LCM meet.
    First ever, man you have been deprived! There is nothing like racing in LCM. Of course, I hate turns. The less walls, the better in my book.

    Yea I like LCM meets too, prefer swimming LCM whenever I can. I also hate turns.

    The 400 should be a great event for you. Good luck!
