Driving to Houston this evening to visit my dad; I entered the 500 and the 200 in tomorrow's March Madness meet at Rice. I am hoping that the weather cooperates. My goal is to better my times from Nationals last spring although I will be swimming unshaved and untapered.
On Wednesday I cruised through a 4000 yard IM workout. Yesterday I shared a lane with Larry, Chris, Joe, and Jason. Whitney coached.
8 x (100 swim/50 drill)
20 x 50 @ 1:00, odds fast (200 race pace), evens easy; held :30
1 x 500 pull, buoy only; our lane pushed it, and I went 5:54
20 x 50 @ 1:00, odds fast, evens easy; held :29
1 x 500 choice--skipped this because it was time to go to work
I swam a meet warm up this morning at Life Time because I had an early meeting and comfortably held :37 (scm) for race pace 50s.
