I'll start scouting locations for the Brundage Natatorium on Thursday morning, but after I go into hiding when my Powerball ticket nets me the cool $1.3B. In the meantime, I had almost exactly 30 minutes to get in a swim this morning at MMR before I caught my flight to Burbank. I did this without extra rest between sets and it was something slightly more than 30, but less than 31 minutes:
  • 1 x 200: IM kick-drill
  • 3 x 50: on 0:45, free descend swim (0:35, 0:33, 0:31+)
  • 4 x 25: on 0:30, odds easy, evens fast fly (0:14), free (0:12)
  • 3 x 50: on 0:40, free descend swim (0:32+, 0:31, 0:30)
  • 4 x 100: on 1:20, free, idea was to hold 1:01s, but I wasn't warmed up enough yet and was 1:03, 1:03+, 1:02, 1:03
  • 1 x 50: on 1:20, easy
  • 3 x 100: on 1:20, free, idea was to hold 1:01s, and was 1:01, 1:01, 1:00+
  • 1 x 50: on 1:20, easy
  • 2 x 100: on 1:20, free, idea was to hold 1:01s and was 1:00+, 0:59+
  • 1 x 50: on 1:20, easy
  • 1 x 100: on 1:20, free, I just decided to go for it and was 0:57
  • 5 x 50: active recovery, 2 each on 0:40, 0:45


TOTAL: 2,000 SCY

  • Before the workout at home during my Monday morning sales call while the other guys were blabbing about this and that deal, I did my dryland routine, 2 rounds of:
    • 10 pushups
    • 30 seconds downward dog
    • 30 seconds plank
    • 10 squats
    • 25 crunches

  • On Sunday afternoon, I returned to hot yoga for the first time since July. Never before have I performed so well after so long a gap. The class felt awesome and the heat never really bothered me.
  • After a delayed flight this morning to Burbank, I was stoked when I got back to that airport and found that the earlier flight up to San Jose was delayed allowing me to get on that. That should guarantee me a good night of sleep and attendance at the Stanford Masters workout tomorrow morning.
