Total: 1550

Srdan and I suited up for this, him in his "Croatian National Team" leg suit, and me in my full body B70 Neuro Comp. This was the ugliest dive/lactate set I have done all year. It was hard to feel fast. As I pointed out during the set, when things started to unravel: there is nothing like a sprint set like this to show you how broken down you are.

SHOUT OUT: Trip, who did 6x200 instead (maybe that would have been the wiser option?), 2 @ 4:00, 1 @ 5:00, 2 @ 6:00, and went 2:36, 2:36, 2:35, 2:34, 2:33, 2:31. Very impressive times. Srdan had the fastest 50 of the group with a speedy 26.8. Noel was the most consistent, with a 27.4 on #1, and then only having one other 50 above 29.0. Doug (FL) was a speedy 32.4 (32.1 on Srdan's watch) at the end of the set (he only did one 50, again, to show us that "it's just not that hard").
