- Missed the gym yesterday due to MLK day; pool was closed.
- I think it’s time to work on speed rather than technique when it comes to swimming.
- It’s probably reasonable for me to try to swim 100 yards in 2 minutes. (I’ve seen 100 yards in 1.5 minutes quoted online, but my current speed is something like 100 yards in 3 minutes).
- I think my swim intervals will be based on this website:
- 10 x 50y intervals, with 15 second breaks.
- 10 x 50y intervals, with a total of 1:15 for each interval.
- 5 x 50y intervals, swim as fast as possible, and break up the sets with a slow lap.

- This interval program should take about 40 minutes, which is my usual swim time.
- Some of the claims about swim speeds are truly ridiculous — like people saying they can swim 100 yards in a minute. (I don’t doubt it, but these guys are swimming 3x faster than I.)
- My Theraband that I was using for physical therapy broke yesterday; I’ll try to get a new one today.
