Fifteen days until Nationals. I am in a stretch of call that includes three consecutive weekends and 14 out of 20 nights, which does complicate my training. Fortunately I was able to sleep through the night without any pages. We will see if my luck holds.
Swam at UT in the main pool with Ande and Jim, who have already started tapering and moved into a slower lane, as well as Larry, Jared, and Sharon. Whitney coached.
900 as 100 free/100 IM/100 kick
4 x 100 IM @ 1:50 (we were told to choose a moderate interval); I descended to 1:26
1 x 600 swim, negative split; went 4:17/4:08
4 x 200 IM @ 3:40; I descended to 2:54, which is probably a practice PB
1 x 600 pull (buoy only), negative split; I slipped into the next lane after 200 meters so I could race Larry and went 4:07/3:58, a very strong swim for me.
1 x 1000 IM with fins; I did 600 then left for work. My target was 4000 meters anyway.
