Summit team

Certain sets in Masters swimming are like Everest: they appear so insurmountable that we rarely attempt them, and when we do we typically fail.  In this category I include 100s @ 1:10 in scy and 100s @ 1:20 in lcm.  I arrived at Nitro this morning with absolutely no plans to climb Everest.  I shared a lane with Tom and Anita.  Stephen coached. 

500 swim
4 x 100 drill @ 1:40
4 x 100 @ 1:30, struggled a bit on these
4 x 50 @ :50
4 x 50 @ :45, still not feeling great
4 x 100 kick with fins @ 1:45
4 x 100 @ 1:20, made 'em, averaging 1:18-1:19.  Tom led the lane, and I left :10 back.  I have made this interval only once in Masters swimming, and that was two years ago. 
500 pull
100 easy
