Tuesday 4000 LCM Swimming

The Tuesday morning swims at the Culver City Plunge are really enjoyable.  Mainly because it's a Long Course Meter pool and I just swim along not worrying about someone on my feet or doing flip turns.  I just cruise along picking up speed working on my pull. 

Warmed Up
400 Swim
300 Pull
200 Kick

Warm Up Set:
3x100's Free on 1:30/1:30/1:25
2x200's Free on 3:15

Main Set:
300 on 4:15

2x300's on 4:20

3x300's on 4:10

100 kick
200 warm down

The first 300 on the main set I didn't go out as fast as I should have and had about 7 seconds rest.  The rest of the 300's I was coming in just under 4 minutes.  I should have went out faster in the last one but I took the first 50 out to easy.  Overall it was a good pace workout.  Afterwards in the locker room another swimmer came up to me and asked if I was the guy in red trunks.  When I responded yes he said that I was fast.  It's nice to hear that even though I wasn't feeling that fast today.
