Monday Morning Swim

After two days out of the pool getting back into the umm...swim of things was a bit of a challenge.  That and last nights run.  I had planned on leaving the house this morning a few minutes early to take a quick detour to the post office to drip off a bad movie back to Netflix.  But getting off the couch was too much so I just dropped it off at the box at the end of the street while biking to swim.  The difference in dropping a movie off at the post office before 6am and dropping it in a blue box that picks up at 11am makes a day of difference in getting a new movie.  Anyways, I rode the bike to swim.

Once at the pool I took my usual time getting in the water and warming up.  I did about a 350 mixed with some pulling.  We then did a warm up set of 4x150's broken 75 kick / 50 drill / 25 swim.  The drills were one arm freestyle, finger tip drag freestyle, catch up freestyle and fist freestyle. 

Free Set:
2x300's on 4 minutes.  Okay me and my lane mate screwed this up.  The first 300 we did a 350.  I thought so but since I was sorta lost in a dream like state I did the extra 50.  It wasn't to the next lane finished at the same time that we realized that we did an extra 50.  Then the second 300 my lane mate thought we had moved on to the next part of the set and stopped at the 150 mark.  Opps!  We did the second one on 4 minutes.
6x150's on 2 minutes.  Descend 1-3 take and extra 15 seconds then descend 4-6.  It took me a bit to get into my groove.  The 6th one was my best one which was planned but also I finally woke up.

50 easy

Then we  moved on to the stroke portion of the workout.  3x150.  75 kick / 50 drill / 25 swim.  One fly, one back and one breast.

Stroke Set:
2x100's IM on 1:30
4x50's IM order on 50
200 IM on 3:00
8x25's on 30

150 warmdown.

Easy enough workout for a Monday.  Tomorrow a few of us are going to meet at 6am at Culver to do a distance free workout on our own.  I need to put together a workout for our little group.  Till next time...
