Thursday Swim

I am in class and as we often do, we are writing. It's Thursday morning, Friday for us, and I'm about as happy as a dead pig in the sunshine. I get to run this afternoon, take a nap, and swim tonight, but right now I have the need to write and thanks be to God, my job affords me that opportunity.

Now it is 10:00 pm. I just arrived home from DSU where I knocked out another big swim. I opened up with a little over 2,000 and then Cagri had us do 50s alternating with longer swims. It went like this:

2,150 38:19; 1:46
6 X 50 @ 1:30 decline 1-3 (1:34 best)
800 small paddles 11:37
50 easy
6 X 50 @ 1:30 decline 1-3 (1:35 best)
600 pull 9:31; 1:34
50 easy
6 X 50 @ 1:30 decline 1-3 (1:36 best)
End of Masters
400 6:24
1,500 27:21; 1:49
total: 6,450 = 5,895 meters.

At the end of Masters, Cagri told me to keep the pattern up until I ran out of yards. I did the 400 at a pretty stiff pace, but when I finished I didn't have the drive to do the 50s alone so I just started swimming. 

This makes two good swims for the week. If I can get one tomorrow, it will be a cracker jack block of training.
