Leading the pack

Julie's workout
Given that I was a slacker yesterday morning and slept in (which was fantastic by the way!), I was VERY determined to get up this morning and get going on time to the pool.  I arrived and was in the water a little earlier than normal.  I did 1200 yards before SALT masters swimmers started.  This morning I was in a lane with three other swimmers, they wanted me to lead.  So I did.  That was good cause it forced me to go fast and not be lazy. Here's the workout that was prescribed by Julie:

600 warmup
500 - 4 x 125's first and last 25's (fly/back breast), middle 75 free on 2:05
400 pull
400 - 4 x 100's free strong on 1:35
300 pull
300 - 4 x 75's free strong on 1:15
200 pull
200 - 4 x 50's stroke on :50
100 free
100 - 4 x 25's IM order on :30

1000 - 8 x 125's first and last 25's kick, middle 75 free on 2:10

Then I did my own thing since it was over:

2000 pull
500 kick with fins
1000 finger paddles
1000 no equipment free
500 PT paddles

10,300 yards total in 3:05  

Felt very rested and energized.  Had no fatigue or soreness to deal with so I was pumped when I got out.

Yesterday afternoon I had someone email me about using a picture of me for an open water project.  Here's the email:

"i am doing a project on open water swimming and how wet suits help or how some prefer not to wear wet suits but traditional speedos but its hard to get photos that are of normal guys and not models.  may i use some of your photos?"

I laughed out loud on that.  So she wants a fat guy in a speedo?  I'm her man!  I said yes, so you may just see my fat butt on some article.
