Swam at UT in the diving well with Larry, Sharon, and Joe. Whitney coached. I was still a bit sore after yesterday's 5000 yard IM workout, so I took a couple of Aleve before practice, something I have been trying to avoid after reading a negative article about NSAIDs earlier in the week. On a positive note, the former teammate who back in August posted the photo of Hitler on my facebook wall apparently decided not to swim with Longhorn Masters after all. As Whitney wrote one day on the white board, the only i in team is the one in the a-hole. Life is good.
300 swim, 200 kick with fins. 300 pull, 200 IM with fins
10 x 100 @ 1:30 (we had our choice of repeat distances on this interval; one of the faster lanes swam some 125s); cruised these and held 1:15
10 x 100 @ 1:20; cruised these and held 1:12
10 x 100 @ 1:10; pulled these (buoy only) and made them for the first time in decades, touching right at 11:40. I was overtaking our lane leader toward the end, so I pushed off under the lane rope and kept swimming in the next lane.
10 x 75 @ 1:00--I swam an easy 200 instead because I had to leave for work
4300 yards in 68 minutes
