3000 yd swim drill... 500 WU, 5x50 kick, 5x50 pull, 500, 400, 300, 200, 100 with increased intensity as we worked down to the shorter distances, 500 WD. My times were okay... 500 was a 1:36/100yd, 400 (1:34/100yd), 300 (1:31/100yd), 200 (1:31/100yd) and 100 (1:21). My 200 was too slow... should have hit a 1:27-1:29/100yd. Maybe I should stop wearing my baggy board shorts for pool drills. :) Burt always says I am the best thing in a speedo!!

Didn't run or xfit today... too tired!

Did I ever tell you that you look great in a banana hammock?

Hey, is Little Braddah your little brother?

Little Braddah is my youngest sibbling... I think I have him converted to running. He's training for his first marathon in May. You should run the "huff to bluff" with us. It's kinda close to you... Blanding, UT

Hmmm...I have a ex-mission companion that lives in Blanding.

Yes, I served a mission.

I drop a few jaws too when I tell people I served a mission. :D

Especially when you're standing there in your speedo.

My mission had no jackets required!?

You need to give little braddah crap about his running performance. Also, my daughter is setting up an account soon on the runningblog.
