Well at least I got some swim time in this morning. That's twice in one week. I'm on a sad little roll. This little swim was very little and more like a warm up. I'd love to swim more but work, work and more work. So far I taught 8 one hour spin clases and 3 half hour classes. That's a bit of spinning. So swimming just isn't happening. I don't always remember to use my heart rate monitor so I don't have every class posted to Garmin but trust me I've done them. My body knows I've done them. Thursday when I was done I was beat. Even with a nap my body was telling me "no more". After yesterday mornings class I just came home and watched bad tv on the couch. So I figured I had to get up and do something before I head to teach spin.
The swim "workout" or warm up...
200 Swim / 200 Pull / 300 Kick.
I then had this great idea for a set. Yeah, I was making it up as I was swimming. I had a printed workout but I left it way over at the other end and it's 50F outside. I'm not walking outside in these cold temps! The plan was to swim 2x50's, 2x100's, 2x200's, 400, 2x200's, 2x100's and 2x50's. I got as far as the 100's. But I did four of them instead of two. I was pulling the first part and started to swim the last two 100's.
1 :42.4 50 1:24
2 :43.5 50 1:27
3 1:23.4 100 1:24
4 1:24.0 100 1:24
5 1:21.1 100 1:21
6 1:20.2 100 1:20
I was just feeling horrible in the water. My stroke was horrible and I just had no motivation to swim. So I switched to 50's hoping my body would wake up and I'd be motivated to swim fast. Yeah, well, that didn't happen.
1 :38.6 50 1:17
2 :38.9 50 1:18
3 :38.7 50 1:18
4 :38.9 50 1:18
So I said to myself, let's try some IM stuff maybe that'll do it. Once again, NOPE!
8x25's on 30 reverse IM by 25.
