1972: Spitz scorches to seven gold.
50 Years Later The Greatest Open Water Swim Ever - Escape From Alcatraz

Barely Swimming.

Day Two!  My second day of swimming is done with!  My swim break is over.  I gotta say that I'm soooooo slow!

Warm Up
200 Swim / 100 Pull w/o Paddles / 200 Pull w/ Paddles / 100 Kick (600)

4x50's 25 Underwater / 25 Swim on 1"10 (200/800)

400 - 50 Catch Up / 50 Build.  After the 200 I was so far behind I gave up the catch up and just swam it.  And I still got lapped! (400/1200)

6x150s's on 2:40 - 25 Catch Up Free / 25 Specialty Stroke.  I did the first one fly and the second one back then repeated that pattern.  (900/2100)

8x50's w/fins on 60 25 Catch Up / 25 Sprint (400/2500)

I then did a 100 easy to warm down (2600)

And that was it.  I was so beaten up.  Damn, I'm outta shape.  Well swim wise.  I'm going to try and get at least 4 swims this week.  Hopefully tomorrow and Friday.  That is my goal. Goaly
My Go The Distance goal is getting to be very hard to catch.  I'm behind over 33 Miles!  My goal is to get it below 25 by the end of June!  I know not a big goal.  But I just don't want to keep falling behind.  It took me 5 months to get to 100 Miles.  I gotta step up my yardage!
