not drowned yet

Took a week off to go "work" in Singapore on some personal awesomeness (invested in this: http://www.sogalventures.com/) and finally got back in the pool after a while off.
Coach was in A Mood and we did:
12x25 kick drills
4x25 freestyle drills and swim
4x25 breast stroke drills and swim
4x25 back stroke drills and swim
(1x50 freestyle breathing practice
2x50 freestyle SPRINTS
1x50 freestyle cool down) x 2
As always, no concept of pacing so I go all out on the sprints and cannot catch my breath in the 20 seconds before the next set, so I was utterly dying. I have a great strategy though:
* Curse repeatedly whilst fixing the goggles between sets; helps with breathing
* Swim FASTER every set; I get more and more tired so the faster I swim the sooner the set ENDS
To wit: did the next-to-last sprint in 48 seconds, and the final sprint in 45 seconds, giving myself an extra three seconds to curse and fix my goggles. WIN!
Also massive failure under the barbell; just got too heavy on everything (140kg squat, 70kg overhead press) so I am gonna deload from next week and work my way back up.
Maybe work on diet, too? What's this Kenzai Meal thing...?
