I know I've been yapping on for years about how much I hate kicking. Kicking is my time to take a pee break or just hang by the wall and soak up some sun. But now that I teach spinning my legs hate kicking more then I do. Yesterday I taught 4 spin classes and then this morning I taught 1 more before going to swim. So needless to say I didn't want to kick and my legs couldn't kick. Besides the kicking the workout was just a waste of time for me. I really wasn't in the mood. Tired mostly. I was able to get a 20 minute nap between spinning and swimming. But not enough. At least I was smart enough NOT to drink any wine last night. Oy!
For warmup I pulled a 500. Then we did a 300 kick. It was stomach/back/side and repeat. Then we did 3x100's something, something and something more. Crap, I had it on the tip of my tongue before typing the stomach/back/side. On well the warm up was 1,100 yards total.
4x200's 100 Catch Up / 100 Swim. I forgot the interval. (800/1,900)
Interval Time Distance Avg Pace
1 2:39.7 200 1:20
2 2:40.1 200 1:20
3 2:43.0 200 1:21
4 2:36.7 200 1:18
10x50's 1 Easy / 1 Fast. (500/2,400)
Then 3x100's kick choice. (300/2,700)
5x100's 25 Drill Stroke / 25 easy free / 25 Fast Stroke / 25 easy free. I did them fly/back/fly/back/fly (500/3,200)
Meh then some sprints of some sort then drill stuff. I don't remember. It's a blur. (500/3,700)
So that's 3,700 yards. And no more swimming or classes. Yeah! I'm beat. I am registered to swim a meet this weekend but I'm doubting I'm going to make it. May just eat the entry cost and relax. I don't know if I can swim fast both mentally and physically. It's just too much.
And that is it till next time...
