Friday May 18, 2012

Swam at Nitro with James, Jeff, Anthony, David, Ginger, and Steve.  Tom coached.  The pool was set up long course.  We swam a lactate set of 200s today.  I was not feeling great but pushed through it.

400 swim, 300 pull, 300 swim
4 x (3 x 50 @ 1:10, #1 kick, #2 build, #3 25 moderate/25 fast legs, slow arms
5 x 200 @ 7:00, 100 easy after each; went 2:36, 2:39, 2:38, 2:38, 2:38.  I had wanted to hold 2:36 but was happy with the consistency of my times and my ability to hold my stroke together through the set.  I focused on keeping my stroke long, particularly on the last 50.  In 2011 I swam a set of 3 x 200 @ 6:00 and held 2:36 leaving on the 8 instead of on the 0, so today's effort was comparable.
200 easy
