First day with SALT

This morning I was at the Steiner 25 minutes too early.  They don't open their doors until 5am sharp.  So good now that I know what to expect on commute, if I leave my house at 4:15am (the same time as when I left for SDRC), I'll make it just in time for the doors to open.

I started out with 1200 yards free before swimming with the SALT Masters club:

600 yards free warmup
450 - 9 x 50's drill/kick
900 - 9 x 100's free (3 sets of 3 x 100's on 1:25, 1:20, 1:15)
1800 - 9 x 200's (first 5 pull) - progressively build back (200 free, 175 free/25 back, 150 free/50 back.. 200 back)
I was lapped 4 times on this so I was behind 200 yards by the end of it, but will make up for it at after the workout
900 - 9 x 100's back (time didn't matter I was so slow, I was going the whole time)
450 - 9 x 50's breathing drills (3,4,5,6,7,8...)
Ended up talking with Will for quite a while after this after which we resumed with:
1800 - 9 x 200's pull (first 5 large paddles, last 4 with finger paddles) on 2:45
700 - 7 x 100's kick with fins on :50
(200 makeup on backstroke slowness)
8,800 yards total in 3:00

It was nice to talk with Will this morning.  He's got alot of really cool ideas.  
I also tried the Perpetuem (Caffe Latte flavor) this morning.  It wasn't terrible.  It was alot better than the Heed.  It was still not as flavorful as I would like, and tasted like chilled hot chocolate.  The only flavor of the perpetuem I had was this kind.  I'm just ordered some of the Orange/Vanilla flavor.  So at this point the Perpetuem is way better than the Heed.  The other stuff I got from Hammer was recovery stuff, and electolyte pills.  Anyway, if you wanna tryout the perpetuem, go to their website.  Find what you want, and then call in your order at Hammer, and mention my client # as a referral to get a 15% discount.  My client # is: 196437
