Back to work

Swam at Nitro with Tom, Lynne, and Eric, next to Jeanne, Jordan, and Chuck. The pool was set up long course. Clint was on deck but mainly worked with the fitness swimmers/triathletes.

800 swim
800 kick with fins, even 100s without a board
800 pull, breathing 3/5/7/9 by 50
800 swim for time, went 11:31, splitting 5:45/5:46 (went 11:14.79 at Long Course Nationals in Savannah in 2004); had to pick it up a notch to pass Chuck (who left 5 seconds before me) in the last 100 meters
8 x 50 @ :45, made 'em
100 easy


  1. Finishing with those 50s is rough stuff, well done. That's a great way to finish a good workout, might have to add that in myself.

  2. Yeah, it's like having dessert when you have already stuffed yourself on the main course. Hey did you see Mr. Phelps in Charlotte this weekend?

  3. Yes, saw Phelps up close and personal. He's definitely a rock star.
