Eat, Spin, Eat, Nap, Swim…
This morning I taught spinning at 5:45, oy! I actually stayed up a bit late last night to watch Honey Boo Boo! After class this morning I came home, ate and took a short nap. Then it was swim time! Uh, yeah?
450 Warm up. Should have done a 500 but meh.
200 Kick (650)
Hmm…some drill stuff. 300 yards. (950)
300 Sprinting or picking up the pace on laps 3, 6, 9 and 12. (1250)
Main Set - 8x125's
100 Working on setting technique and breathing every 3 on 1:45 / 25 Sprint on 25 (950/2200)
4x100's Kick stroke of choice (400/2600)
6x75's - 25 Drill / 25 Free / 25 Sprint. The drill and sprint were choice stroke. I did the first one fly then the rest back. (450/3050)
Then it was some 50's and 25's. About 650 more yards. (3,700)
So a total of 3,700 yards for today. The main mission of today's workout was working on our freestyle techinque. Setting it then keeping with it while going fast. Something I need to learn to do. So far for the month I'm at least over 30K. I might be lucky and get to 35K but I doubt that. Work will get in it's way. I'm teaching a weight lifting class tonight so I'm thinking of sleeping in tomorrow. No swimming. Actually may use tomorrow as a recovery day. I teach spinning 5 days a week so I need to squeeze in swimming and recovery. It's getting me in great shape but boy do I hurt some days. Today was one of them. So if I sleep in tomorrow then do a quick easy swim before I teach on Saturday that won't be much yardage but come Sunday I will do a Garbage Yardage swim to eek out some more yards. Speaking of Sunday's a swimmer mate and I are thinking about doing a Postal. I couldn't find the info on the the usms.org website but it's a 200 Fly / 400 IM / 1650 Free all to be swum the same day back to back. It's doable. Long and boring but doable. We are thinking of organizing a few of us and doing it. Right now it's just CRAZY TALK!
