Yesterday I was so motivated to swim after I was done with my sluggish morning workout. Well motivated in that I was going to push myself and swim like mad today. Then last night I was more on the fence. I still wanted to swim but just not so hard. That must have stuck somewhere in my head as when I woke up this morning it was a chore to just get out of bed. I had zero motivation! Well not zero because I told myself that I'd feel better and be happy after my workout. So I dragged my ass to the pool.
Warmed Up a mixed 550. I felt pretty good. Shockingly my body was waking up.
200 Kick (200/750)
4x50's Kick/Drill (200/950)
4x50's Swim on 50 getting warmed up and on a pace (200)
2x100's on 1:40 pace (200/400/1350)
rest a bit
300 Fast (300/1650)
My first 100 I came in about a 1:10 and my second a 1:06. I figured as long as I came in between those two times I'd be okay. I ended up swimming a 3:23 for the 300. Which isn't bad but not great. My first 100 I was out in a 1:06. Then I got lazy and my stroke fell apart from time to time. I had to keep thinking about my head position and self correct myself. I don't want to say I was tired but swimming sloppy. And it showed in my times.
Easy 199 (100/1750)
we then did 4x50's drill / swim by 25. I did these butterfly since I'm working on my stroke. (200/1950)
I then swam an easy 50 after all that. So 2,000 yards. My plan was to stay in and swim another set on my own but well I didn't. I got out with everyone and headed home. Just didn't have the morning motivation to push myself. Luckily tomorrow's workout may be more of a challenge. We will see.
