Wednesday swim

A long and tiring but on the whole quite satisfactory day. I didn't have time to fit in a run before class, but I had a very good swim just now with Lauren - good for morale and variety to share a lane with a friend!

Warmup: 100 free, 100 drill-swim by 25 (6-3-6)

6 x 50 free descending by pairs (1:00, :55, :50)

300 pace set - check clock every 50 to try and hold :55/50 (this is an appropriate pace for me, but I 'lost' five seconds on one of the middle ones due to mild confusion!)

4 x 100 as 25 stroke, 75 free on 2:10 (2 fly, 2 back)

2 x 75 kick-drill-swim (fly, back)

4 x 50 free starting in middle of lane and working exclusively on turns (accelerate into the wall, good streamline off wall)

c. 1550 yards total
