Got there when the main group finished their warmup. There was an open lane, so I grabbed it and did my own thing. Added some yardage today and tried to maintain pace longer. Also did some fly - not much but some.

Not sure of the Name yet but it's
It's been a while! So long in fact that I don't think I ever wrote up anything about my incredible experience in Omaha...4 new best masters times in the 100, 200, 400 and 1500 free! But it was two days after getting home from Omaha that was far more exciting than anything that happened during our 12 days at Trials/Nationals - we found out that Rachel is going to be a big sister next March, as luck would have it, probably the weekend of the Albatross Open, go figure! Fortunately I was treated to a week of feeling great, then the dreaded morning sickness (also known as all day and night sickness) kicked in and lasted for about 6 weeks. Based on the number of people who told me that with their second baby the morning sickness lasted nearly the entire pregnancy, I consider myself lucky that it is gone. I am back to feeling good, eating normally, swimming and I am much less tired than I was for the past two months! Yippee!

Swam with Dave, Dave, Keith, Ray and John. Scrimmaged with my U16 soccer team last night. One of my bigger players collided with me. Both of us were going for the ball and neither saw the other one. His shoulder hit square into my chest and I narrowly avoided splitting my lip on his head. My biggest concern was whether or not I had hurt him. Once I realized he was ok, I started thinking I might not be doing so well. Fortunately, I just had the breath knocked out of me and after a couple minutes I shook it off. So, I showed up at practice a little sore this morning and didn't expect to do a whole lot. Turned out to be a pretty good day.
600 Warm up
4 x 125 - 1:45 (Made 1:30s)
500 Free - 7:30 Dave pushed me pretty hard on this one. Made 6:05 which was a good bit faster than I though I was going.
2 x 300 Free - 4:30 (3:35, 3:31) Again, Dave was pushing me pretty hard and I was surprised to be closing on the 1:10 pace with a drag suit on.
3 x 100 Stroke - 1:45 IM Order, backed off the pace and recovered.
Did another round of the above but I pulled out the paddles...
500 Pull - 7:30 (5:35) Apparently, I was good and warmed up at this point and ready to knock out 100s on a 1:07 pace. First time I've been under 6:00 on a 500 in a while.
2 x 300 Pull - 4:30 (3:25, 3:17)
3 x 100 Stroke - 1:45 IM Order
16 x 25 - :40 Down Fast IM Order, back free or fly no breath
400 IM Easy - Cool down
Still have to maintain my ability to do the 1500 in October. Not as fast as I was but still have some speed.
500 free broken as 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,1,2,1
500 free kick w/zoomers
8x25@:45 shooters w/zoomers
5x100@1:30 free w/strapless paddles & bouy went 1:28,1:27,1:26,1:23,1:21
5x100@1:30 free w/strapless paddles & bouy went 1:27,1:24,1:21,1:20,1:19
5x100@1:30 free w/strapless paddles & bouy went 1:24,1:21,1:20,1:19,1:17
Total 3300 yards

Well, the head coach came back from the ASCA clinic with lots to tell the team, and his EXPECTATIONS of the group as well. I know he really wants to see improvement out of the kids compared with the year before, and stressed quite a few things:
Attention - respect for others, especially the coach, sets will be explained once, you miss it, you'd better figure out what you're doing. Rest between sets will be down to :30 to a minute MAX. More intensity, more effort expected, etc. I like this. I'm sure the kids are slightly scared, but I'm ready to go.Hydration - all swimmers are dehydrated, even if they don't think so. Everyone needs more water throughout the day. Mandatory to bring a water bottle to workout. Next week --> No waterbottle...no swim for you!Kicking - we will be doing kicking up the wazoo!! Fins, no fins, kicking with shoes on, kicking in all different sorts of ways. Be ready! Oh $#!+8@LL$ !!! is my thought to that, but I will do it....and something else, but I can't remember it now since I'm still working on the first one Prior to this meeting the coach told me I didn't have to listen to this, and that I could get in and swim, but I told him that I'm part of the team, and want him to treat me as an equal as the other kids on the team, whether that is good or bad news for me. I told him to get after me if I'm screwing around just like he would with any others. He said, OK, Great!
Well, that took up about the first half hour of the practice, and after that we got started. Kind of a different workout today, but it was still very tough.
400 (25 Breast/25 Fly) take 8 fast strokes of each, then free to the wall if needed. Some sort of Coach Salo thing that he got from the clinic.
8 x 100 Sculling @ 2:15 Alt. 25 sculling out front/25 sculling down past hips...head down the whole time on both
10 x 100 Kick w/ fins & board @ 1:30
flutter or dolphin - (did flutter and was 1:08-1:12s)
Funny here...I was going 5th in the lane (:20 after the leader), and the 4th person was gone by :08 seconds after the leader. The coach caught on to this and hammered the kids about watching the clock and maintaining the :05 sendoffs.
8 x 25 Sculling Jackknife Drill @ 1:00
I was one of the only ones who could do this. I think P90X came in handy.
Sculling hands at waist, going backwards, but with body in pike position like divers - legs straight with feet out of the water. This is hell on your forearms, but I did it better than most.
8 x 100 Free @ 2:00
25 8/3/8 Drill (8 Kicks/3 Strokes/8 Kicks)
25 Breathe every 3
25 Breathe every 5
was doing these with added dolphining off walls as well.
8 x 25 @ 1:30 done in pairs of same stroke, 1 EZEZ, 1 Sprint
Did Fly/Fly, Back/Back, Breast/Breast, Free/Free
Focused on maximum distance (15M) + speed off walls
400 Free cooldown
Only 4200 Yards tonight, but pretty intense stuff. I'm beat, but ready for more. I'm excited to work with my new coach, John Pringle. He used to coach on the west side of the mountains in the mid-late 90s/early 2000s, then after a pool closure went back east to somewhere in Boston coaching for a while, and has now returned to the northwest and is really turning around the team in a very positive direction.
