Wednesday September 18, 2013

Swam 3600 yards at Barton Springs on Sunday with Ben and David; a couple of women who were around my age or a bit older complained that we were not giving them enough space when we passed them.  I think they were just looking for something to complain about, since we passed them very carefully.  It is open water swimming, is it not?

On Monday I swam at UT with Kristy and Jared.  We were coached, as always, by USMS coach of the year Whitney Hedgepeth.

Warm up:
400 free, underwater turns at the far end
200 kick
400 pull
Main set:
2 x (12 x 50 @ :45 with underwater turns, 6 x 100 @ 1:20 negative split, 3 x 200 @ 2:40 descend); I led the lane, pulling the second round, holding1:10-1:11 on the 100s and descendingthe 200s from 2:26 to 2:21.
8 x 50 kick @ :55

Missed practice yesterday because of an early meeting.  This morning I shared a lane with Larry, Sharon, and Jennifer, next to Jim, Ande, and Nate.  I led my lane again.
