I wasn't sure if I'd swim or go to the gym today. but figured that since the pool was open (it was too cold last Sunday), and the temperature was decent, I'd go. always better to workout outside. it was partly sunny...rather cloudy at times, then suddenly the sun would pop out.

I hadn't thought of a set at all before jumping in the pool. usually I have some thoughts. anyway, I started the 100s thinking I'd either do 5 or 10, depending how I felt. around #7, I figured I'd go to 12. once I go that in my mind, I gradually descended those last 5, with the last around 1:17

I couldn't remember when I last did a 100 fast. They typically don't allow block starts at this pool. I've never asked, but occasionally there's a girl with her mother and a coach of some sort. once they got her up on the block and the lifeguards freaked out. I've never had a problem at other pools when I asked. I have done them at Sendero when we had a team there.
anyway, pushing off of the wall with fins and paddles, I just felt like i was gliding on the water. my time was 1:04. when I swam with the Mesa group, Paul told me that your time with fins + paddles is usually a good indicator of what you'll do at a meet.
