200 warm up
4 x 25 drills
4 x 200 threshold intervals, 30s rests between each set
4 x 25 kick drills
200 cool down (50m breast, 50m back, 50 m side, 50 m free)
Let me just tell you, the 4 x 200 threshold intervals had me shaking. I had NO IDEA how that was going to go.... but I could not believe I did it - fastest 800 in my life. And believe me, the swim "sprints" are sooooo much tougher than running.

3. Utz... never been a real fan of their chips, but today, their chip bag saved me. I found a random chip bag on the ground and used it to cover by phone... protect it was the rain (yes, it WAS raining now, not just drizzling). One man's litter is a woman's prize possession for 10 miles.
4. I am contemplating registering for something big. Huge. GIGANTIC. I am having a hard time waiting until after June 26th to do so. But, I said I would wait and if it was meant to be... it would be. But I am stalking plans.... dreaming about it. It IS crazy... but I am insane when it comes to training. It would be a huge goal... but I am not sure I have the confidence to do it. If I am not thinking about running, I am thinking about THIS!
5. I really wish I was a professional athlete. Not professional in the sense that I want to be uber fast and a "beast" at anything (although that would be awesome). But in the sense that I did not have to work. I mean, I do not work full time... but training takes time and working part time and training is kill'in me. I mean, I think sponsors should start supporting the "middle of the pack" athlete... I surely can inspire people to not give up. And surely I will be passed by more people who would see their product, right? I am not sure how you full time working people train and work.
