Managed to wake up early for the 5:30am lap swim...and found that none of my normal lap swim partners were there today. Luckily after nearly finishing my warmup, Pat showed up so I had a swim buddy...making the workout manageable.

3x (100 Free/100 Back)
(600 warmup)

4 x 300 Free Pull w/ paddles @ 4:00 (Pat did 250s on same interval)
went 3:28/3:24/3:19/3:14...feeling great too
50 ez
4 x 200 Free Pull w/ paddles @ 2:30 (Pat did 150s on same interval)
went 2:10/2:13/2:13/2:12
--had to decrease my pace interval down a bit so Pat wouldn't get too bored waiting for me...and made me work too It's good for me, but haven't done a 1:15/100 interval in a while
50 EZ

12 x 100 Free Pull w paddles @ 1:30
I just cruised these...and it almost felt like a cooldown set after the previous ones

It was at this point that my other regular training partner Jake showed up...about an hour late to the party. gave me an excuse to train with him too. **Normally that would be the end of our swim...and even a little more yardage than normal...BUT...

300 Free cruise "warmup" during Jake's warmup

12 x 150 Free swim - no toys @ 2:20 (Jake was doing kick on 4th length...he also swims with zoomers on to "keep up")
I held them around 1:45-1:49s with minimal effort...just cruising and extending the workout.

100 cooldown

6100 Yards...surprised the heck out of me...especially for only being on about 4 hours sleep after working last night til 11

And off to refuel at McD's....and maybe a nap before work this afternoon...but I doubt the nap will home from school today.

    3:19 on 300 pull. Ah, you are actually in shape! A good day is if I can hold 3:40. 6100 today, nice!

    Nice work James! Now I kinda wish I hadn't cut practice short today. I swam with my daughter. (Her team has no practice today because the school where they train is closed.) She did 6100, but I stopped at 4900 because I want to be careful with my shoulder. It was the right thing to do, but when I see folks here posting that they put in a big one, it makes me wish I had too. Your workout had too much freestyle though, we did almost no free - lots of back, breast and kicking.

    It's good to see you blogging again.

    You're definitely in shape if you can bust out 6,100. Nice.

    Thanks guys...and a few hours (or so it seemed) later, I was heading to work...where I got to change out a 15HP motor on the fruit drying much fun after having a sore tired body. I wanted to just coast through the night. But, at least now, I'm on my "weekend" days.
