Fun workout! A pain in the butt in the middle of it but still fun after it was all done.
I watched a video online the other day and am trying that particular method. It seems to be working better as far as balance, effort, and speed. I'll find the video again. AND I finally know the purpose of kick drills. It's to work on the core for streamline/hip position.
Here's the link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQJtcu5ZP84&feature=related
In the past, I was rolling more and trying to recover my arms directly above/in line with my body. Trying to follow the tips and working on my streamline seems to have helped.

30 min easy peazy run with 4 min cooldown. Two of the kid came with me to the track to calibrate my footpod. They brought a plastic tube and we played relay. Wore 'em out!

New PR for 1000yds.
Supposed to be easy 1 hr ride. Tried hard to keep it easy. About 40 minutes into it, I had a flat. Took 45 minutes and two CO2 cartridges to change it right. Finished ride. Good learning experience on what not to do and what to do.
Explored some county roads north of 380 in and around Prosper. Some decent roads with fairly smooth asphalt.
