Various people who know me will be laughing as they read this - but I have rediscovered my love of swimming! Best thing ever! Don't know quite how I forgot that - perhaps it was necessary to enable me to prioritize spin classes? Anyway, not sure I remember all the sendoffs, but workout was along the following lines. Shared a lane with just one other guy who was easy to swim with - it is very nice for me when there is a slowish lane 5, as lane 6 usually has people not really doing the workout, but if lane 5 is on super-fast sendouts I can't make, there's nothing to do but work around people resting at the end of every length or otherwise swimming waywardly in the dreaded lane 6...

Warmup: 150 free, 200 IM drill-kick by 25, 150 kick

Set #1: 8 x 75 back with fins as 2 x (4 x 75 on 1:40 - too much rest for me given the fins - (1) kick (2) kick-kick-swim (3) kick-swim-swim (4) swim)

+ 2 x 50 freestyle build

Main set: 2x

4 x 75 pull on 1:40
4 x 25 stroke on :40
4 x 75 free on 1:40
4 x 25 stroke descending on 1:00

Did fly for first time through, back for second. It was great! Lanes 1-4 had 125s instead of 75s and 50s instead of 25s, which I was eyeing slightly longingly, but I would not have had time to do the whole set twice through....

100 easy cooldown

2900 yards total
