Notes: Man what a challenging workout today.  My stroke was feeling off and my lats were sore from yesterday.  I literally wanted to quit at the third set and had to make a deal with myself each time.  I kept thinking to myself, this next set won't be as bad.  I made it to the 10th set, and during the breaking drilled a little bit and found that I wasn't getting the lead arm underneath my body.  As soon as I made this adjustment, I felt so much more balanced and stronger.   I, without trying very hard, hit 1:38 on my first 100m on the second set.  From there it was much less struggle to continue.  I cleaned it up afterward even more and it felt so good. 

1. Wide Tracks
2. Rotate until body is supported over arm
