Weekend update

Didn't swim today although we stayed at the Houstonian last night, and I had access to a very nice heated outdoor 25 meter pool.  The weather was cool and damp, and we left early for the drive home to Austin.  Tomorrow morning's workout will be over 5000 yards, so the rest will do me some good. 

Yesterday I swam at Life Time in the outdoor 25 meter pool, which I suspect will be closing for the winter soon.  Longhorn Masters did not hold practice because of the football game.  I swam my favorite test set, 15 x 100 @ 1:30, and held 1:20-1:21.  I felt very strong on this set and actually went 1:19 on the last one.  Right now my endurance is as good or better than it has ever been in Masters; the intensity and the volume of the workouts at UT seem to be having an impact. 

On Fast Friday I shared a lane with Christie, Jeff, and Jared.  Whitney coached.  Larry swam in the next lane and wore a full body suit. 

Warm up: 2 x (300 swim, 200 pull, 100 kick)
Main set:
2 x (10 x 100 @ 2:00/1 x 200 easy); 1-4 @ 1000 race pace (1:09-1:10), 5-7 @ 500 race pace (1:06), 8-9 @ 200 race pace (1:04-1:05), 10 from a dive off the pool deck (1:01-1:02)

3600 yards
