If it's Thursday I better be f'in swimming! Woah, once again I've been out of the water for days on end. Last time swimming was Saturday. Now it's not like I don't do anything those days. I teach spinning pretty much every day but Friday and Sunday. With my class scheadule I really only get to swim on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the 10am workout. Well that really isn't much fun since I teach spinning those mornings at 5:45am. I'm beat before I gotta swim. So on this past Tuesday I wasn't feeling so hot therefore I skipped swimming. Which was a good thing as I ended up going back and teaching the evening class. Wednesdays I could always swim on my own at 7am but I was beat and slept in. Then I teach at 12 and 6:30pm. Which is okay but teaching to about 7:25 at night sorta blows when I gotta be back to teach the next morning at 5:45am. So I never get much rest on Monday and Wednesday nights. Last night I had about 3 hours sleep. After class I come home eat and take a quick nap before heading to swim. It's crazy and I don't know how long I'll be able to keep to this scheadule.
Warm Up a 400 but the watch says 425 so maybe I did a 450. Then a 300 kick. I felt okay kicking. In fact I held my own which never happens in a kick set. Hmm…then we did some kick/drill thingy. Total of 300 yards but what was it? Meh, whatever. (1050)
8x125's on 2 minutes. I messed up with the watch and missed a 50 on the 4th 125. Now the 125's we were to pick it up on laps 3 and 5.

It took me a while to warm up and get some speed in. (1000/2050)
Then it was stroke time with 3x100's kick. I actually led a kick set for a change. Yeah, it was that bad today. Well the fast kicker is tapering for a meet. (300/2350)
6x100's on 2 minutes? 25 Drill / 25 Kick / 50 Swim. All with fins choice of stroke. I did fly/back/fly/back/fly/fly (600/2950)
6x50's Free on 55 - 25 Finger Drill 25 Build with fins(300/3250)
6x50's Free on 55 - 25 DPS 25 Fast with paddles and fins (300/3550)
4x25's Specialty Stroke. I did butterfly. (100/3650)
And that was it. I'm going to do my best to swim more the next few weeks. Even if I swim on my own. This month like last month hasn't been my best swimming months this year.
