Almost last chance swim workout.

4x50's on 60 Fly/BK, BK/BR, BR/FR and Free Pull (200/900)

3x200's -
1 Free on 3 Minutes
1 Back on 3:20
1 Fly/Free by 25 on 3:20
1 IM  (800/1700)

5x100's Reverse IM on 1:45 (500/2200)

I then only did a 50 warm down for 2,250 yards.  I gotta admit the last few days of weight training really was a double edge sword this morning.  I feel stronger making the butterfly a lot more easier as I was able to muscle myself to propel myself.  That and I was really concentrating on hand entry and my pull.  It just seemed a bit effortless.  Well effortless isn't the right word but less effort then in the past.  The double edge was that I was feeling it in my upper back.  All those reverse flies came out to haunt me in my fly.  But I guess it's a good thing to feel the muscles working while swimming, right? 

As for swimming I will be out of the pool for a few days.  With two days of training in a class room I won't be swimming this weekend.  Gotta work Monday before sunrise to who knows if I'll get to a pool in the afternoon.  So this is it till Tuesday.  Unless things change again.
