Main Set Friday – January 14, 2011

This was a tough one, but it’s always nice to hit some milestones.

One long set which took a lot of planning to make sure things were still accomplished at the end… where it really matters.  Today was the first time I could make the faster interval, so I considered it a milestone even though it’s not so fast. 🙂

Main Set (long course):
• 3 x 200 on 3:15
• 3 x 200 on 2:45
• 3 x 200 on 3:15
• 3 x 200 on 2:40
• 3 x 200 on 3:15
• 3 x 200 on 2:35

A 3,600 meter set where someone like me had to take advantage of the easier intervals to make sure I made the faster ones.  The whole time trying to make the progressively faster intervals while swimming as easily as possible so that even with fatigue the last three were made.

Felt good about the practice… which is always a good thing. 🙂
