Ahhh…swimming again. After a few days off it was nice to be back in the pool. Of course it was even better that it was a super duper easy workout. Since everyone is tapering for a Senior Swim Meet no one was at the pool at 7am. Well with me included only three of us showed up. Since they are tapering I get the best of both worlds for this swim meet. I'm not 55+ so I'm not competing but yet I get the taper. Well I sorta will have the taper. Since I haven't been in the pool since last Friday I got an easy workout. I swam along side of the tapering swimmers. I'm sure tomorrow I'll have a different and much harder workout.
Mixed 550 then a 200 Kick (750)
3x100's on 2:10 Swim/Kick/Pull/Build by 25 (300/1050)
2x100's First one pace and second one a bit faster. The other swimmer was to swim the second 100 on what they wanted to go out on their first 100 in the 500. I just sorta swam it not to fast but with some effort. (200/1250)
3x100's Pulling breathing every 3 on 1:30 (they were doing im/switches 50's) (300/1550)
Then I did 3x100's Kick with fins on 2:.. (300/1850)
Then an easy 50 and got out. (50/1900)
It was a nice workout just to get back in the water. I plan on swimming tomorrow but then won't swim to Sunday. Hopefully I'll be more consistent after that. Now the sad part of the story is that I'm on reserve goggles. The other week I lost my favorite pair of Swede Goggles! So I was using my second favorite pair of goggles from Ministry of Swimming. But then the band broke on Friday when swimming. On Friday I borrowed a pair of goggles from another swimmer. Then today I brought my reserve collection of goggles. None of them are bad but I just didn't like them. First I had to play during warm up to get them feeling right. Then just the tint of color seemed just off to me. Goggles are like Godilocks and the beds…they just gotta hit that sweet spot. But I do wanna know where my Swede's are? Did the Goggle Monster take them? Oh well, I guess it's time to buy new goggles.
