Coveting Superpowers

I slept in this morning a little but I still made it to the pool at 6:00am sharp.  I started right with the Masters team:

300 warmup choice
200 - 4 x 50's choice drill/swim by 25
2500 - 5 x 500's Odd 500 swim, even - 5 x 100's on 1:20  I pulled the 3rd 500 and was able to stay with Josh. That guy is fast and pulling strong was all I could do to keep up with the guy.
200 - 4 x 50's descending free on 1:00 (:36, :34, :32, :30)
100 - 2 x 50's off the block sprints (Both :28)
100 easy

Then I did:
800 kick with fins
4000 - 2 x 2000's free 1st one pull (under 26:30), 2nd one no equip(27:15).  Go strong!
200 - 100 back, 50 breast, 50 free easy

8400 yards total

I felt so good today!  I sometimes get worried that if I really push myself with masters, that I'll die out and won't be able to get my 8-9K for the day with much quality, but today proved that theory wrong.  I swam really strong with Masters and didn't bonk for the distance sets in fact I did pretty well.

During my swim today I kept thinking "What if I were given a free superpower but only one?"  You can pick:

  1. The ability to fly
  2. Super strength
  3. The ability to breathe underwater 
  4. Lightning speed
  5. Be the object of desire around the world by silly girls.
I would definitely pick #3!  I felt like a fish today!
