Tuesday swim practice

An enjoyable swim practice, though my usual lane (often quite crowded) was so thoroughly depopulated today that it almost defeated the purpose of it being practice rather than just swimming on my own - I split the lane with A., which was pleasant, but we were fairly casual about intervals!

The other annoyance was that there was not time to finish the set - open lane swim was starting as we finished the 75s of breast, and it was clear that the old lady with kickboard who had entered the lane in the meantime would be MOWED DOWN if we continued with the third 200 of free.

I went to practice so little in December and January that it hardly registered, but Liz tells me practice has been freestyle-heavy due to the one-hour swim - I am glad it will be returning to the full range of strokes, it is more mentally stimulating!

Warmup (curtailed): 150 misc.

2 x 100 easy IM on 2:30

Main set (incomplete - only went through the breast, and modified the fly set to do 100 drill-swim by 25 instead of the final two 75s - laziness!)

For each stroke, in IM order:

6 x 75 stroke as 1 x 75 kick-drill-swim on 2:00, 2 x 75 drill-swim-drill on 1:50, 3 x 75 swim on 1:40

1 minute rest

200 free on 3:50

1 minute rest

c. 2050 yards total

Mowing Down is definitely frowned upon!
