Friday Morning Swim

I need to start sleeping in on Friday and swim the evening workouts at least till I get use to running 5 miles the night before.  Friday's are always tough and this morning I just wasn't having it.  I was tired, my legs didn't want to do any kicking and my arms wanted to fall off and take a nap.  Good thing I was in the fast lane with people tapering for Nationals

Warmed up a 300 freestyle.

Warm Up Set:
8x75's 50 Drill / 25 Swim Reverse IM (2 free / 2 breast / 2 back / 2 butterfly)

Kick Set:
75 Fast
75 Fast

Main IM Set:
150 (25 stroke / 25 free / 50 stroke / 50 free)
4x75's Stroke
50 Fast Stroke on 60
Round one  I did all the stroke butterfly, second round backstroke and the last round some back and breast.  I forgot the intervals but it was pretty fast.  Touch and go.  I just know the 50 fast was on 60 having some rest.

Main Free Set:
4x100's Free 1:10/1:15
Okay even though the set wasn't much more than this I did a 100 out of 2x200's and got out.  I was tired and just not feeling it. 

Plan on relaxing tomorrow for my recovery day then swim at the UCLA meet on Sunday.  Will be deck entering the day of the meet so who knows what I'll decide to swim.  I know I'll do the 500 Free and after that it's up in the air.
