This morning I got to sleep in a little. Yoo hoo! Got up at 4:45 and took my sweet time getting to the pool at Northwest. Here's what I planned for and swam as successfully as I had hoped:
300 easy warmup
10 x 100's FAST
1st one a little easier than the others (1:07), 2-9 got 1:04 and on the last one 1:01
300 easy cooldown
1,600 yards total in 30 minutes
Because I pushed those 100's I don't feel guilty one bit for tapering. If I can maintain a 1:04 average on my 100 splits in the 500 free, I'll have a new PR (from high school) beat this Saturday. I think this is doable. It's gonna be tough, but definitely possible. Looking forward to it! No swim tomorrow, mental training tomorrow.
Side note, Craig Lenning (One of only 3 people to have a Frosted Triple Crown) finished a monumental swim from Farallones to the shoreline near SF yesterday. Tough dude. Super tough.
