Sports Ilustrated Vault: Micheal Phelps

That's Enough For Today

This morning I went swimming on my own to the Culver City Lap Swim so I could swim in a LCM pool.  Before swimming I had to bring my my partner to the airport then find an atm to get cash to pay for the lap swim.  So after all that I only had about 50 minutes to swim.  I was going to skip it and just go to the short course yards workout tonight but then I decided I needed the long course swim.

They had two fast lanes so I looked for the one that looked faster and got in.  I started off swimming a 400 then pulling a 300 with paddles and 100 without.  After that I did a mixed 400 swim some free some stroke.  I did a 200 fly broken by 50 drill / 50 kick / 50 drill / 50 swim. I then did a 100 backstroke followed by by 4x100's IM on 1:45.  Then I did 4x50's fly on 60 and then a 100 easy. 

I think that was it.  I lost track of what I was doing.  Actually doing a set in a lap swim is pretty much a pain in the ass.  So at first I was just swimming to swim.  Figure it's a swim and it's a taper week so that was enough.
