Final swim

This morning is my final home swim until my Catalina Crossing.  I'm stoked!  This morning I got into the pool, but even if I'm just a couple minutes past 6am James and Paul have already gone 200 into the warmup.  My warmup was shortened in order to stay with them.

100 warmup
200 - 4 x 50's on :50
300 - 4 x 75's kick no fins
400 - 4 x 100's drill
1200 - 6 x 200's pull on 2:30 (The board said R :30 and I thought it said 2:30, so I left at an interval :15 faster than the other two guys.  Which wasn't terrible cause it pushed me to go hard with little rest)
300 - 4 x 75's  fast free 25, backstroke easy 25, fast free 25
400 pull finger paddles
400 - 8 x 50's free on :50
500 - 4 x 125's IM

3,800 yards total in 1:04

Probably pulled a little too aggressively as my left shoulder was a little achy at the end.  Good thing its getting lots of rest over the next week.  I'll probably only get one decent swim this next week.  Friday I plan to swim 6 miles by doing a double width of Donner Lake at Jamie's swim camp, then taking it easy the next several days.   It's gonna be a fantastic next couple weeks!
