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
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.
