A shout out to my dad, fellow Masters swimmer Herb Siegel, who turned 90 yesterday. I hope that I am still here and still swimming when I am 90.
Swam at UT this morning in the main pool and shared a lane with Joe and David. Whitney coached. Tuesday and Thursday practices start at 6:30 and finish at 8:00, so I usually miss the last thirty minutes because of work.
1 x 500 as 200 finger tip drill, 100 IM, 200 catch up drill with a kick board
4 x (10 x 100 at best interval/1 x 200 easy); Whitney assigned our lane an interval between 1:15 and 1:18, so we chose 1:18. I did not use any equipment, although she said that we could pull one round. I made three rounds before leaving for work and led the lane on the first two rounds, holding 1:13-1:14, just slightly faster than En2 pace. Very tough set and the most 100s I have done in one workout on an interval faster than 1:20. My elbow was a bit sore afterwards.
