I'm experimenting with my workout schedule this week.  This Saturday and most of the weekend I was pretty wiped out from getting up daily at 0430.  I'm going to try to do M, W, F at 0430 and do 4500 to 5000 yards.  I will get up Tue and Thu at 0530 and swim only 2000 to 2500 yards.  This way not every day is such an early day.  I get daily swims in and "maybe" not be so tired from my long work/school days.  Might be more motivated to swim more than 5k on Sat.
Got to the pool at 0600 and got right in.  I wanted to do some shorter and quicker sets.
500 WU
100 swim hard then right into 50 kick.  I repeated this 6 times
2 x 100 sprint (1:13 then 1:10) Not too bad.  I put 1:15 down for my 100 free time for the QUAC meet.  Guess I'll be under that!
100 easy
4 x 50 sprint
100 easy
500 CD mainly doing stroke work and some breast mixed in.

2500 SCY

I really pushed myself on some of my sprint work.  Still trying to get the balance between going all out and not letting my stroke go to hell in the process.  I find that if I focus on all out speed, my stroke falls apart and I do some of my pulls in already disturbed water which is a wasteful pull.  If I focus on stroke work, then I don't go as fast.  The pool is my Carnegie Hall...practice, practice, practice!
