Butterfly vs Backstroke
Wednesday, November 22, 2006
This morning swim practice was a bit of a rough one. The workout itself wasn’t so bad as it was sort of a taper workout. For me it was tough though since I was tired and a bit stiff. Last night I went out for dinner at West at Hotel Angeleno in Brentwood and didnt’ get to bed to 1am. Then this morning I woke up at 5:10. So with four hours sleep I didn’t have much energy in workout. Also after swimming Sunday and Monday then doing weights yesterday my body was calling out for rest. I kept reminding myself this is the last workout till Sunday afternoon so keep on going. Tonight at 10:30pm my redeye takes me to the Sunshine State.
Here was this mornings workout:
400 free warmup / 100 mixed
400 Free. 25 drill and 75 swim.
4x200’s on 3:30. Rotating a 50 stroke sprint from beginning to end. Butterfly was the stroke.
200 Butterfly fast. I did this in about 2:35. Not bad I was doing these 200 butterflies around 2:30 before games. So I’m on track to do about the same time.
4x200’s on 3:15. Rotating a 50 stroke sprint from beginning to end. Backstroke was the stroke.
200 Backstroke fast. I did this in about 2:31. WHAT? How can this be? My backstroke isn’t supose to be faster than my butterfly. When did this happen? Hmmm...maybe a 200 backstroke swim at a meet is in order sometime down the line.
4x25’s sprint starting off the blocks.
Well that is it. Have A Great Holiday!
Nice looking restaurant. How's the food?
Geez, you did 200 fly on 4 hours sleep? You're sick, man!
