Back At Workout

Yes, I dove right back into the pool and made it to workout tonight.  At first it was a bit rough.  I was tired.  With the traveling and swimming all weekend plus a bit of fun my body is tired.  I slept 12 hours last night and did nothing all day so it was time for something.  And swimming is something.  Plus i told myself I'd take it easy tonight.  Famous last words.

Warmed up a 400 pull without paddles, a 200 pull with paddles, 100 swim and a 50 kick.  We then had a kick set which I took some time off for a long pee break and chit chatting with the lifeguard.  Nothing has changed since this weekend I still hate kicking.

Then after the kick set we did a warm up set of 4x75's one of each stroke.  50 drill and 25 swim.

Main Set
3x200's Free on 2:40.  I went in the slower fast lane.  The fast fast lane did them on 2:30.  These were descending.  I did them all too fast.  My first one was on 2:15, then 2:12 and the third one was on 2:09.  Yeah, my body is still in swim meet mode.  These are SCY as usual.
4x50's Breast on 50.  Oy!  These were tough.
2x200's Free on 2:40.  Descending again.  I was doing 2:17 and 2:12.
4x50's Back on 50.  Easy.
1x200 Free.  Fast.  I did a 2:12
take some rest
4x50's Fly on 50.

easy 50

Next Set:
6x100's Pull on 1:25.  1-3 breathing every 3/5 by 50.  4-6 breathing 3/7 by 50.

Then it was a warm down.  I was feeling pretty strong.  My sore throat felt good till then end.  The cholorine seemed to help it.  Which is what I think caused the sore throat to begin with.   We will see how I feel tomorrow.  My reason for swimming was that I'm either getting sick and will wake up in the morning and miss swimming so I should go tonight just in case i can't swim for a few more days.  I don't have any other symptoms so I can't tell if I'm getting sick.  If I had I'd skip swimming as not to infect my fellow lane mates.  But I'm guessing it's all the inhaling of chlorine and yelling all weekend that is the cause.  Then again who knows.  I'm no doctor.
