Before you think this is a misspelled golf reference, let me just say I'm talking about the nine four hundreds we did this morning. When the warm up was 3 x 400 there weren't any groans from the liquid peanut gallery. But the announcement of 5 x 400 as the main set seemed to "set" some folks off.

Me? I was smiling. Sometimes it seems as if the workout was written just for me, or as if those $20 bills I slip Tim once in a while really pay off. Not only is the 400 my favorite distance to swim in practice, but I love doing them with no gear, and over and over and over. Just putting my head down and swimming is my kind of morning. That's basically what this morning was, and I'm already getting teary-eyed thinking about the end of February tomorrow.

Here's the entire workout:

Warm up with 3 x 400
Main set: 5 x 400. switch leaders every 400
Warm down with 1 x 400 broken at the 100 for 5 seconds.
