Personal Best

After a difficult few months of training interrupted by a bout of bronchitis, rhomboid tendinitis, and then last week a kidney stone, I was very pleased to swim a personal best in practice today for a set of 8 x 100s: 1-2 @ 1:10 (1:04/1:06), 3-8 @ 1:15 (holding 1:10-1:11).  I shared a lane with David and swam next to Steve, Jeff, Anthony, Stefan, and a guest from Santa Clara also named Steve.  James coached.

500 swim
2 x (4 x 25 fly @ :30, 4 x 50 @ :50 IM order, 4 x 50 kick @ 1:00)
8 x 100, 1-2 @ 1:10, 3-8 @ 1:15; this was a personal best for a set of 8 x 100
500 easy, pulling without paddles
3 x (1 x 150 @ 2:15, 3 x 50 @ :40, 1 x !00 @ 1:30, 2 x 50 @ 1:00); averaged 1:46 on the 150s, 35s on the 50s @ :40, went 1:12, 1:12, and 1:08 on the 100s, held :34 or better on the 50s @ 1:00.
200 easy
