Saturday July 27, 2013

Swam at UT in the main pool with Larry, Kristy, and Sharon.  Whitney coached.  The pool was set up long course.

Warm up:
200 free/100 fly (drill/swim)
200 free/100 back
200 free/100 breast
Main set:
4 x 400, 1:00 rest; we were supposed to negative split these and hold the same pace for all four, but I built each one and descended them instead (5:36, 5:32, 5:30, 5:27).  I led the lane and swam against Ross Davis (visiting from the Woodlands) on one side and Taylor (a college sophmore) on the other, hanging with both of them.  This was one of my strongest sets of 400s yet, all the more remarkable since I only slept a few hours Friday night because of work; to place this in context, back in 2004 I swam a 5:26 at long course Nationals in Savannah. 
4 x 300 pull, 1:00 rest; descended these 4:15, 4:10, 4:07, and 3:59.
I skipped the rest of the workout as I am beginning my taper and swam an easy 200 instead. 

3900 meters
