Just another day at the pool. I swam by myself this morning which is really boring. I wrote out a workout and for the most part stuck with it.
Distance: 3,000 yd
Pool Length: 25 yd
Avg Pace: 1:22 min/100 yd
Calories: 600 C
Avg Efficiency : 32
Avg SWOLF : 29
6x50's on 1:05 (i think) (300)
6x50's on 1:00 (600)
4x75's on 1:15 (900)
6x50's on 55 (1200)
4x75's on 1:15 (1500)
3x100's on 1:30 (1800)
6x50's on 50 (2100)
4x75's on 1:15 (2400)
3x100's on 1:30 (2700)
300 Cool down (3000)
Basically it was 10 broken 300's. If I had more time I actually was going to add an additional round. 6x50's/6x50's, 4x75's/6x50's, 4x75's, 3x100's/ so instead of the 300 at the end I was going to add in 2x150's to the third round and then add in another round with the 150's and the 300 at the end. But since I got to the pool about 40 minutes later then I had planned I gave up. Plus I haven't been swimming much. So swimming just 3,000 yards kills me. I took a break after the 3x100's. About 90 seconds. But for the rest I tried to just keep going.
Hopefully this week I'll be able to get in two good swims. Today I will be spinning for 90 minutes at a fundraising event. I teach 2 classes tomorrow and with the times of the classes I won't be swimming. But Tuesday and Thursday should be swim days. Hopefully next Sunday I can get out of bed earlier and get in a really good workout. Would love to do this workout again but do the extra yardage.

My goal is to get in another 10,000 yards this week. That is my goal but at the very least another 7,000 yard to push me to 30K for the month. I got that 2.5K open water swim in two weeks. Oy! I'm so not ready!
