On Tuesday I decided to skip the gym and take a recovery day. I needed it after the weekend. This morning while swimming it felt like I didn’t take a day off. My arms were sore! As I’m working on my NEW & IMPROVED freestyle I think that the new stroke action is why I’m feeling the pain. I promise to post more about the NEW & IMPROVED freestyle soon. And yes I’ve yet to post a recap on Sunday. I’ve been busy at work and then the last two nights I’ve been battling the beginnings of a cold. Damn it!
But I did brave temps in the 40’s to swim at the outside pool this morning picking to swim the distance free lane. Although I don’t agree calling today's’ workout a distance free workout but it wasn’t sprints so that is a good thing. The Mon and Wed morning coach is big on technique and drills so that leaves less time for actual distance. She already warned me that Monday is going to be another heavy drill day.
