284 days until Indy

I missed practice on Friday because of an early morning meeting.  On Saturday I swam at Nitro with Steve, Tom, and James.  Stephen coached.  I modified the warm up.

800 swim, 400 pull, 200 kick, 100 swim
1 x 500 for time, went 7:03, splitting 3:31/3:32, a solid effort
20 x 50, no additional rest:
2 x 50 @ :40
4 x 50 @ :45
6 x 50 @ :50
8 x 50 @ 1:00, held :38s, went :35 on the last one
100 easy

I had planned to swim at Barton Springs on Sunday, but the coliform count was high due to the recent heavy rains, so I swam later in the morning in the outdoor 25 meter pool at Life Time.  The water was warm, probably around 83 degrees or warmer. 

400 swim, 300 pull, 200 kick, 100 swim
10 x 50 @ 1:00, odds drill/swim, evens swim
12 x 100 @ 1:30, held 1:20s but it was a struggle
4 x 100 @ 1:25, held 1:20s and felt stronger on this set
100 easy

This morning I swam at Nitro with Tom, Michael, Steve, Anthony, and Dean.  The pool was set up long course.  Jordan coached. 

400 swim, 300 kick, 200 pull, 100 swim
8 x 50 kick @ 1:15
1 x 100 kick with fins, faster than 2 x the average time for the 50s
8 x 100 @ 1:45, held 1:21s but felt tight; HR was 150
1 x 200 swim with fins, went 2:33
8 x 50 pull @ 1:00, no paddles
1 x 100 pull with paddles, went 1:12
100 easy

I am realizing that I am going to need more 2000 + yard sets than we are currently swimming.
