I was supposed to alternate between a 1:25 and 1:20 pace on the second set, but I was barely making 1:25 so I did them all on 1:25/100 pace. That still only gave me just a few seconds per 100, not a ton of rest. So there's no way I could have done 1:25 without bonking. Wasn't too pleased with my strength today. Just felt kind of weak the whole time and sluggish.

When I woke up this morning, I noticed my lower back and neck is sore from yesterday's first ride of the season. But at least I did the workout. I was about to get out after 2000 yards. Glad I stuck with it. I already slacked out on Monday, but skipping this workout so I could get off work early enough to clean Bountiful Lake with the family. So no more slacking this week!

I also confirmed with Josh Green that we'll be swimming out at Bountiful Lake next Wednesday morning at 7:30am.
