Tuesday Night Swim
Wednesday, April 30, 2008
In just a few short hours the temperature in LA dropped like a rock. Waiting on deck for the 7pm workout to begin the wind crept in the cooler temps. It got to the point that after workout I was rubbing my arms to keep warm on my way to the locker room. Riding home on the bike I was pretty chilly.
I think I'd rather have it too hot than too cold outside. I know that by morning it'll be back to shivering on deck. Although I don't know if I'll swim tomorrow morning as I need to be in Marina Del Ray in the morning. I may just go for a quick run and if later in the day if I'm up for it go and swim at a lap swim. Who knows.
As for tonight workout started pretty slow for me. I was feeling tired and just not into it. Warmed up a 400 Swim, 300 Pull then a 100 Kick. Then we went right into a kick set. A series of 12x50's on 60. Every third 50 was kicking butterfly n our back. After that we had a warm up set 4x75's 0n 1:15 50 Drill 25 Swim then 4x75's on 1:15 25 Drill 50 Swim.

4x150's Choice on 1:20
By the last 4x150's I moved over to my own lane. The first one I did backstroke, the second one fly, the third one backstroke again and the last one 50 fly / 50 back / 50 fly.

1 underwater one breath
After that I warmed down just a 50. It was cold and I just wanted to get my clothes on. During the main set I came alive and worked them all. I guess I just had to get past all the warm up crap. I hate to miss swim tomorrow but if I go I'll have to leave early anyways.
