Yesterday evening the SLOW board met online to discuss several things. The biggest change is that all the Utah open water races will now be completely independent of USMS. This may have a minimal effect on USMS, but potentially a huge effect on the open water participation in the state, which was limited to Masters swimmers. In that sense it's very exciting. We have a lot of work ahead of us to get the young swimmers to catch the vision of swimming outside, but with a little experience and training I think it'll catch on.
As for this morning's swim I did a shorter workout not because I was hurting or lacking motivation. There is an intra-squad meet tomorrow that I'd like to really perform on. Today I got in 500 yards before Pat's workout:
450 - 6 x 75's kick/drill/swim on 1:10
1600 - 4 x 400's (4 free, 4 back, 4 breast, 4 IM) on 1:30-1:40
400 - 4 x 100's (2 x 50's free, 2 x 50's back, 2 x 50's breast, 2 x 50 IMs) on :50
200 - 4 x 50's (free, back, breast, IM)
100 - 4 x 25's (free, back, breast, IM)
3,700 yards total in 1:10
