LCM with the kids

Well summer is officially here. Memorial Day was last weekend and kids everywhere are out of school. Because of that local swim team now has their hard workouts in the morning. This means that now in addition to the handful of Master's swimmers at the pool in the morning, there are also 15-20 high school kids. The good news? I now have some people to swim with. The bad news? I'm put in the fastest lane and have serious trouble making the interval on the faster stuff. For instance today the main set was

4 x (400 pull on 6:00
4x100 stroke on 1:45
400 on 5:15
4x100 on 1:20)

And oh-by-the-way that is long course meters. Luckily we did get a break between sets and I only did the first two rounds but regardless its going to be a while before I'm actually making 4x100 on 1:20. Thats just not a lot of fun at 5:30 in the morning (or any other time for that matter). Oh well, at least it beats swimming by myself!
