... I hope to be flying home from Indianapolis, basking in the glow of a successful Nationals at my favorite racing pool in the world.

I am very glad that I have nine months, though, as I think the task of getting me back into prime racing shape is going to be almost like building a human from scratch! Since my last post two months ago (http://forums.usms.org/entry.php?407...et-in-7-months!), I've done some impressive work on the 1001 pools goal by adding 20 more pools to my list (https://www.1001pools.com/pool-list), pushing me over the 300 mark. However, I've been pretty lazy when it comes to actually training hard at any of those pools and, with my shoulder feeling perfectly good and summer vacations behind me, I've decided to start the long training road back.

This morning in SCM:
  • 1 x 400: IM, kick-drill by 25
  • 4 x 100: on 1:40, w/snorkle, freestyle descend, going 5-4-3-2 SDKs off each wall by 100 (e.g., 5 SDKs on the 1st 100, 4 on the second 100, etc.) and blazing through a 1:22, 1:21, 1:19, 1:18+
  • 16 x 25: on 0:35, w/monofin, underwater SDK on belly in sets of 4
    • #1 - 2 breaths easy
    • #2 - no breath moderate, focusing on core connection
    • #3 - 1 breath moderate
    • #4 - no breaths, fast

  • 6 x 50: on 1:00 (odds) / 1:30 (evens)
    • odds strong stroke going fly (0:38), back (0:40), breast (0:45)
    • evens scull/drill easy w/snorkel

TOTAL: 1,500 SCM

  • That's all she wrote. Going to try a 30 minute walk-run effort on the treadmill after work.
