I did a group workout at lunch today, it went pretty well. I can feel myself getting better at keeping up during the workout. I don’t really have that internal clock that lets me know how fast I’m going on repeats so modulating my speed for descending sets are kind of a pipe dream at this point, but I can maintain the same general speed across a lot of repeats. Today we did a set of 12 x 100 and I was very stoked to keep up with the faster group the whole time and make all the repeats on time. Now I need to start speeding it up!

Here’s what I swam today:

Repeat x 3
100 kick
100 pull
3 x 100 free

6 x 50 fly drill down, swim back

12 x 100 free

3000 yards total

I’m feeling sore in a good way. I feel really energized and can’t wait to get out there and race again!

    SO psyched for you to finally be swimming with a group Rob!

    Watch. I bet a few of them start traveling to meets with you too!

    This is going to send you into a whole new level with your swimming.
    Good move!

    Looking forward to seeing you in Mission Viejo on June 7th!

    I wish I had the time to work out with them everyday, unfortunately a trip to the pool at lunch is like 2 1/4 hours out of the office in the middle of the day!

    I’ve seen the coach at meets before, but I’ll start working on some of the other kids to hit a meet or 2. If nothing else the Santa Barbara meet is in the same county, hard to find an excuse not to go to that.

    See you next week!
