When my alarm went off at 5am I had to make the decision of getting up and checking the rain situation or just sleeping in. For some reason my body wanted to get up. So I wake up and while grabbing the morning paper I noticed that it wasn't raining. After that I decided to go swimming. Of course once I got to practice and was on deck it started to rain but luckily it stopped in less than 5 minutes and the sun broke out by the end of workout. What makes swimming outside in the rain even worse is that locker rooms don't have any real roof besides the gate rooftop so the locker room was wet.
Warmed Up about a 250 or was it a 350. I don't know it was rather slow. I was feeling last nights workout.
Then we did 3x150's. 50 drill / 100 swim. The drill was modified swordfish.
I'm skipping something here. Hmm...oh a pull set. I think it was a series of 100's. the first 15 yards of each 100 was suppose to be the head lead drill (Press your buoy, head lead: freestyle kick face down arms at side, kicking gently and press your chin and chest towards bottom of pool.)
Next up was 7x100's keeping on a pace you'd think you do for a 1650 SCY. The interval was 1:20 and I held 1:14's.
500 holding that pace. I was able to do that doing 1:14's on each 100. Well I can only guess that as I did poke my head up after each 100 to look at the clock and I finished it on 6:10 which would be equal t a 1:14 pace.
5x100's on 1:20 50 pace / 50 build. I was holding 1:11's.
Then we did 8x25's on the coaches send off. 1-4 the first 1/2 fast then 5-8 the second 1/2 fast.
Finishing up with two practice starts.
And that is it. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving so we don't have practice. So I have a day without swimming for the Holiday. Cheers!
