Sitting in the San Luis Obispo Airport getting ready for my next cross country excursion… this time I’m off to Indiana for the USMS 10K Championships. This is my last swim that requires a flight until September. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t look forward to the aeronautical break, I’m starting to get a little exhausted.

Anyways, today I got in one last swim before splitting town. Mike was in charge of the workout and beat us up with a gang of 25′s. We did 1000 yards one length at a time. It was one of those things that sounds easy but turns out way harder than it should have been. After the short stuff we did a pile of 100′s to try and squeeze out 3000 yards. I skipped maybe 200 yards in there. When the interval shifted I had a hard time adjusting and skipped a round to reboot my swim and get back on pace.

200 swim
200 kick
200 pull

16 x 25 @ :20 w/ fins, every 4th fly
12 x 25 @ :25 w/ fins, every 3rd fly
8 x 25 @ :30 w/ fins, every other fly
4 x 25 @ :35 w/ fins, all fly

7 x 100 @ 1:30
7 x 100 @ 1:20

3000 yards prescribed, about 2800 yards swam

Tomorrow is all about getting rested and hydrated and then hitting up this pre race briefing going on at the race site. I’m off to hop on a plane… I’ll see you kids soon :)
