Milestone

Swam at Nitro with David, Kirk, Steve, Tom, and Anita.  James coached. 

300 SKP (I did 600 swim/300 pull instead)
Main set, very challenging:

1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 100 @ 1:10, went 1:08
1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 100 @ 1:10, went 1:08
1 x 100 easy

1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 200 @ 2:20, went 2:18
1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 100 @ 1:10, went 1:08
1 x 100 easy

1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 300 @ 3:35, went 3:29
1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 100 @ 1:10, went 1:08
1 x 100 easy

1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 400 @ 4:45, went 4:40, a practice PB!
1 x 100 @ 1:20
1 x 100 @ 1:10, went 1:08
1 x 100 easy

Averaged 1:10s on the 100s @ 1:20.  For a decade I have been chasing a holy grail of sorts, trying to reach the point where I could once again maintain a 1:10 pace in practice.  Not sure if it is a consequence of the taper and shave, muscle repair after not lifting weights for a month, or perhaps some kind of reactivation of hibernating mitochondria, but I definitely nailed it today.  Felt very strong and in control throughout.
