Another day and another swim. This mornings swim felt better than last night but the body felt a bit fatigued. At least a good nights sleep pushed the blah feelings away. Today being Friday only means that I have some time off to let the body recover. I'll hit the gym and then swim on Sunday. So at least I have about 36 hours to let my muscles and body recover.
This morning I warmed up about a 300. I wasn't really counting but I'm think it was a 300.
Then we did a warm up set:
200 Kick on 2:50 (well that was the assigned time I did it on 3 mins)
100 Drill (I think, some sort of drill thing. I'm guessing a 100 as the coach gave us 4 drills to do if we did freestyle)
2x100's Free on 1:25 (okay the assigned time was 1:20 but this is warmup)
I think that was it. Might have missed something. After 7 swims in 6 days the workouts are blurring together.
200 Swim Freestyle on 2:40 (once again I stretched the assigned interval with was 2:30)
6x100's Swim as follows (100 free on 1:20, 50 free / 50 stroke on 1:25 and 100 stroke on 1:30. 1-3 my stroke was back and 4-6 my stroke was fly) I kept to the assigned intervlas for these
200's Swim freestyle on 2:40
6x75's Swim IM on 1:15, I think. (i did the 1 & 2 all back then for the rest alternated strokes minus breast. they assigned rotation was fly/back/breast, back/breast/free, breast/free/fly repeat. I did more of a fly/back/free, back/fly/free, free/fly/back and i think back/fly/free. Hey, I had my own lane.
200 swim freestyle on 2:40
6x50's on 55 descend 1-3 & 4-6. I did 1-3 back and 4-6 fly.
Overall it wasn't my best swim workout but I stuck it out and finished it. My last 50 fly I tried to go fast but was only able to must a time of 32 seconds scy. I took my time at the turn and did a very shallow push off which was basically me never really streamlining. Hey, I was tired.
I did use my new goggles. I still have two pairs of swedes but also another new pair that I'll be talking up soon. Another post for another time. Just a little hint in the picture above.
