Stretching With Ryan Seacrest!
Brody Jenner Goes Out For A Jog

Bastille Day Swim

For some reason the city of West Hollywood had a Bastille Day Festival at the park leaving the area around the pool a huge mess of traffic.  Which for those who drive to practice led to frustration over lack of parking and giving up.  That meant a nice Sunday afternoon workout with only 3 - 4 people per lane.  Wahoo!  I love th fact that I am biking to practice.  No more stressing about parking! 

Being July in Los Angeles it's warm but not that bad yet.  The pool seems refreshing for about the first 50 but after that it's clear that the water needs to be cooler.  Although it wasn't as bad as last week. 

Warmed up about a 500.

Warm Up Set:
150 Drill 1:40
200 Kick 2:50
150 Drill  1:40
200 Kick 2:50
6x75's Swim on 1:15

I was tired and ready to go home after the warm up.  Not a good sign.  My swimming has been very hit or miss of late.  Don't know if it's mind over matter or if it's something else. 

Main Set:
100 Free on 1:20 then 100 Free Fast no interval just go on the next top of the clock (i.e. 60)
2x150's Stroke, forgot interval, then 100 Fast (I did the 100 IM) no interval just go on the next top of the clock (i.e. 60)
3x100's IM on 1:30 then 1x100 no interval just go on the next top of the clock (i.e. 60
4x150's Free (forgot interval) than 1x100 Fast.

Next Set:
On a 1:20 base for each sprinting the last 50.  I used paddles but took them off for the 50 sprint.

6x25's.  1,3,5 underwater, 2 butterfly swim, 4 backstroke swim, 6 breaststroke swim all on 30.

The workout wasn't bad but I just didn't feel it.  When we were doing the 4x150's free it took me to about the 3rd one to get into my freestyle mode.  I will admit by the time we did the pull set of 200/150/100/50 is when I felt good about my swimming.
