Tuesday Pool

I'm keeping the mix going, the contrast between the pond and the pool. At DSU, we started with

800 warm up 15:53 (1:58)

Then we were assigned a pyramid set (ladder really) of 100, 200, 300, 400, 400, 300, 200, 100. On the way up, we swam with buoy and medium paddles. On the way down, we swam with buoy only. Each 100 was swum as breathing 3, 5, 7, fast per 25. Twenty seconds rest on all.

100 1:30
200 3:05
300 4:36
400 6:07
400 6:48
300 5:01
200 3:18
100 1:40

Then I swam 200 (3:26) with medium paddles while the other swimmers finished. After that, I caught Ricky at the wall and asked him how much he had left. He had a 200 and a 100 to go so I swam those with him.

200 3:38
100 1:45

That was the end of Masters Practice. On my own, I swam

2,000 39:38
5 X 100 medium paddles @ 2:15
200 easy
total: 6,000 meters.

God is good. Bless His name.
