Wednesday August 11, 2010

Today David turned 42, so as is our tradition at Nitro we swam a challenging birthday set.  James coached.  I shared a lane with David, Tom, Jean, Daniel, and Fernanda.

500 swim, 200 kick, 300 pull
Main set:
42 x 50 @ :45; this was a very tough set, the most consecutive long course 50s I have done at that interval, and the 82 degree water didn't make it any easier.  I led the lane for the last 32 of them.  Our aerator is a bit undersized, and the metal Nitro building absorbs a lot of heat during the day.
200 easy


  1. That set requires a moment of self examination prior to beginning. Well done!

  2. Thanks. I was running on fumes toward the end.
