    ...or something like that...

    I keep reinjuring my knee...ran 3 miles Thursday nothing..not a peep...did maybe 3.5 to 4 and I feel it tighten and now it's inflamed and painful again. Taking off all week...no running for 2 weeks...then see how it goes...if it pulls again...going to see a doc.

    Doesn't feel like "damage" but I'm not an ortho...

    10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ fins @ :45 (this was not so easy*) (held :40-:41s)
    *I do use the short fins while everyone else has long fins...makes a difference

    (1750/1750)


    Main Set:
    10 Rounds of
    • 100 Stroke (non-free) in groups of 2 (EZ 100/Fast 100) @ 1:45

    200 EZEZ
    (1750/3450)

    16 x 75 (4 times through IM Order) @ 1:45
    • Build a 50 (this means increase kick intensity)
    • :10 rest @ 50
    • SPRINT a 25 (mega kick)
    • recover before next sendoff
    (1200/4650)

    250 EZ
