7:15 Swimming

Ever since I got my iPhone version 1.0 I started to use it as an alarm clock as I can only plug so many things into the wall socket near my night stand.  My iPhone charges up while I sleep and usually I check email and surf the web before falling asleep.  Of late though I wake up different times of different days so instead of changing the alarm time I've created various alarms to go off on specified days and times.  Well last night when I was half asleep I turned on the Tuesday and Thursday alarm instead of my M/W/F alarm so I ended up missing the 6am workout.  Well I woke up at 5:55am so in theory I could of made it to the pool by 6:10 and be able to swim but why rush it.  So I got up, read the paper and biked to the 7:15 workout.  The only difference between the workouts is that the 7:15 is a bit more crowded. 

Warmed up about a 300.  Then we did a 100 distance per (DPS)  the coach gave the other lanes a workout.  From that we did 2x400's the first one 25 swim / 75 kick and the second one 50 swim / 50 kick. 

Main Set:
400 Pull DPS on 5:20 (i think that was it)
4x200's rotating a 100 fast.  1st one the 1st 100 fast.  2nd one the middle 100 fast.  3rd one the 2nd 100 fast.  4th one race strategy.  (forgot the interval as I think we went faster than what the coach gave us)
400 Pull on 5:20 (once again I think)  1st 200 breath control breathing every 3/5/any/7 by 50 and 2nd 200 DPS
8x100's on 1:20 descend 1-4 and 5-8

100 easy

16x25's.  4 free / 4 fly / 4 back / 4 breast.  (free on 20 and stroke on 25)

And that was it.  I was a bit stiff and sore from yesterday.  It's odd that flipping my routine by doing swimming than weights seemed to fatigue me more than my weights in the morning and swimming at night.  Must have been the long course workout.  Although between swimming long course yesterday and short course today I think I'm liking the long course.  Which is odd since I've always hated long course.  Guess I just like it because it's different.
