Good morning to you all...time for my annual drop in to

I've been ramping my swimming back hopes of being in tip top shape by the time this summer rolls around for LC Nationals in Gresham, the Mt Hood CC aquatic center.

That 200 Fly needs to be able to handle 2 HUNDRED LOooooonnnnggg course meters of Fly. I'll get there eventually.

I pretty much swim on my own now, or with a few older friends in the early hours if I can wake up that early. Today was one day where I couldn't make the 5:30am swim, but got there at 7am to see them leaving. Because of a high school diving meet today, the pool was closing after 8:00am. nonetheless...I got in and made the best of my hour before lap swim ended.

100 Free warmup

Noticed the minutes and seconds converging on exactly thought....what the hell..

Let's do a timed 1650!

Well, that went good for a bit...was 6:02ish at the 500, 12:15 at the 1000, and at the 1100 UGH...decided to grab my buoy and paddles to finish it out. Better than stopping altogether, right?
Ended the 1650 with a 19:50...and I believe I counted it right, so not a bad in practice swim with no warmup on 5 hours of sleep.

150 Floaty EZ Back cooldown

300 Flutter Kick w board

16 x 50s @ 1:00 (25 Free/25 Fly) held :35s at a moderate pace...did a full 50 Fly on the final one for :32

Not bad considering I don't ever swim fly anymore in practice...need to change that.

4 x 75 Free Pull w paddles @ 1:00 (:49/:50s)

100 EZ and out

3400 Yards...and not bad for swimming solo

    Welcome back, James! I hope I can be at summer Nats - probably a 40-60 chance right now. Good luck in ramping back up again!
