Recovery Swim

After swimming yesterday I decided to swim this morning but use the workout as a stretched out recovery swim.  Not that I had much choice as my body could only go so fast.

Warmed Up about a 400

Warm Up Set:
50 kick / 50 swim
50 drill / 50 swim
100 swim
round one free / round two butterfly / round three backstroke

4x200 Free on 2:40 rotating a 50 fast from the front to the back
4x200 on 2:55 rotating a 50 stroke fast from the front to the back.  Did butterfly stroke.

400 Free pulling breath control every 3/5/any/7 by 50

400 Free swim.  Descend by 100.  My first 100 I did it in a 1:14 and my last 100 I did a 1:04.

That was it.  I so wasn't fast today.  My fly was pretty sad and painful.  Kicking was just a no go for me.  My last 200 with a 50 butterfly fast I had to pull the free part just to save my legs.  Somehow during the 400 I was able to rally myself into a 1:04. 

I still feel a bit dehydrated from yesterdays swim so today I'm going to relax and drink plenty of liquids.
