Good aerobic threshold series this morning. Lot of mixing stroke and free. I was really impressed with the overall success this morning. Lots of people holding stroke together. Lots of people in the right heart rate zone. And (best part) lots of people laughing and feeling pretty good. Thats a great place to be on the 6th practice in a row. I usually plan 5 hard practices and then one either easy or off... but this year I wanted them to feel 6 in a row as that is what NESCACs is going to be... I always believe your body should experience the end of the season feel more than just once a year. Heading into NESCACs with a training trip like this... and a few dual meets that are back to back days... should only help them handle all that intense swimming the final three days of the season.
So yes, they are getting a well deserved recovery practice tonight.
