I don't mind speed work if we can temper it with the occasional mid distance work set. Dan Thompson at Austin Sports Psych had us doing a lot of sprint sets but we had larger rest intervals for recovery. Move forward 20 years and the need for recovery (at least for the Fat Man) increases. I was able to sneak in some breaststroke sprints, but still whipping the body into shape.

I reviewed the results from the Gulf Coast Masters LC Zones. Attrition has caught up to my age bracket. When I last swam zones some 18 years ago it seems that there were many more in that 30-34 bracket and the 35-40 was going to be a tough transition with its strong level of competition. It looks like we only have a half dozen competing in the breaststroke. The Fat Man now must contemplate a return to competition after I get more regular workouts behind me.
