Officially Official: USMS Top 10 LCM Times for 2008
The Onion: Speedo's New High-Tech Swimsuit

First Swim of 2009

I week into this cold and I'm still struggling with coughing and body aching.  I did decide to go swimming this morning.  Since I was the only fast lane swimmer at 6am I was able to go on a slower interval which was still hard to make at times.  I warmed up around a 300 before we got to the warm up set.

3x100's 25 drill / 50 Swim / 25 drill on 1:25 did these free
6x50's Kick on 60
2x100's 25 drill / 50 swim / 25 drill on 1:25 did these back
4x50's Kick on 60
1x100's 25 drill / 50 swim / 25 drill on 1:25 split this fly and back
2x50's Kick on 60 (1100/1400)

125 IM on 2:00 (extra 25 free)
3x25's on 25 (i did one round fly and the second round back) (400/1800)

Main Set:
300 Free on 4:00
3x50's Fly on 50
1x100 IM on 1:30 (was 1:25 but took extra 5 seconds)
1x100 Free on 1:20
200 Free on 2:35
3x50's Back on 50
1x100 IM on 1:25
1x100 Free.  Took a quick pee break.
100 Free on 1:20
3x50's Breast on 50
1x100 IM on 1:25
100 Free (1650/3450)

Finishing Up
200 Pull breathing every 3/5/3/7 by 50.  Did this on 3 mins.  I dogged it.
4x50's on 60 breathing any for the first 25 and one breath coming back (400/3850)

And that was it.  The first swim of 2009 was pretty bad.  But at least I got in the pool.  My butterfly isn't pretty but at least I was doing it.  For 2009 I'm going to keep a running total of Yardage so I kicked off the year with 3,850 SCY.  Figured it would be interesting to see how much I swim over time.
