Today was an early morning for swimming. Wednesday is Leesburg day for swimming at 5:30am. Which means leaving the house before 5am. Now we might not be doing much of that for the next few weeks due to availability/access to the pool. As for today's workout -
3x100 kick with fins on 2:00 (300/800)
4x125 on 2:30 - R, L, P, K, S. I did them back/free/back/fly (500/1300)
6x50 on :50 good pace (300/1600) Did them free and was a bit sluggish coming in around 36's.
6x50 on :55 faster average pace (300/1900) Did these also free and took a bit before getting back into swimming after the rest break and was coming in around 35's. Now the water was cooler then last week but still feels so warm that it's like swimming in syrup.
rest 6x50 on 1:10 - one easy, one fast (300/2200) I did the easy 50's free and the fast 50's butterfly. I was actually faster in my fly 50's then my free 50's.
25s with insightful commentary. Did these freestyle pulling so I could get my hand position correct. I'm over correcting my hand entry drop. I use to just automatically just drop my hand so then I was trying to let it float out front before the catch but of late I'm over thinking it and while my hand is sinking start to push it up before doing my catch. So another thing to watch in my swimming.
Workout was about 2,200 yards. Not bad for the really hot water. This won't be my only swim today. Later on today I'm heading over to a local pool for a fun relay contest of the local high school vs the retired folks here. I'm on two relays. I think I'm only doing a 50 fly and a 50 free. I was bribed into swimming for the free ice cream and cookies after the relays. Wahoo!
As for the gym I was able to do a spinning (Group Ride) class then finished my gym time off with arms/chest weights. I may hit the gym before the relays or possibly after. But maybe not. It depends on how lazy I am!
