Second round. Surprisingly easy. Surprisingly not as hard as I expected. I’m sure I’ll be ready to crash. Actually, I’m already feeling it. There could be a nap in my future. Or not. I’ll never get to bed tonight if I do that. Anyway, it was a good set. Different, not hard at all. I did all of the 125s 1:50 or better, even breaststroke. Of course, before going into the facility, I’d just spoken with my nephew about last night’s women’s 800 free relay. Which led to a discussion about the 2012 Beijing Olympic men’s 400 free relay. That got me all amped up. LOL Getting in the pool, though, reminded me i’m not in my 20s anymore. Total yards for today: 5550.

As ever adjust the intervals, lengths, and even strokes as needed for your fitness level. Enjoy!
