The last day of February. Leap Day. After swimming the last four days in a row I should have leaped over today and stayed out of the water. But I work up at 5am and got on my bike at 5:40am to get to swim. I felt pretty good actually swimming but the intervals got to me. I didn't stick it out and gave up too early. Once I got out of the pool and was in the locker room I knew I could have stayed in and done the workout but when it's a mind over matter sometimes one gives up the fight. Today was that day.
Warmed up on my own a mixed 300. Then we moved on to a kick and drill set. 50 Drill / 3x100's Kick, 50 Drill / 3x50's Kick, 50 Drill / 6x25's Kick.
4x100's Free. Intervals 1:15/1:15/1:10/1:10
3x100's Free. 1:15/1:10/1:10
2x150's IM on 2:10
Then I did a 50 out of a 100.
These intervals were tough with me just barely making them with a second or two to spare. If I had gone in a slower but still a fast lane I would have stayed in. I just couldnt' keep it up at a fast pace. Oh well I got 45 minutes of pool time in. Taking the rest of today and Saturday off as my recovery time. I'll be back in the pool Sunday at 3pm.
