I am a wimp.

The main set called for four rounds of a 300 free, 200 IM and 100 stroke. After two rounds, I didn't want to do the 300 free anymore, and I wanted to be able to put a good effort into my 100 breast, which meant no 200 IM.

After two rounds, I decided I needed to put some focus on maintaining my body line while going about 90 percent effort. I took 19 strokes per length on the 100s breast, which was pretty good. I was surprised I went as fast as I did. I haven't gone under 1:20 in a 100 breast with that effort in a long time. Well, I haven't gone a 100 breast outside of a meet in a long time!

I liked the workout today. Very simple and it enabled me to deviate from the set without causing too much distraction!
