Oversleeping And Biking As Fast As I Can
Friday, October 24, 2008
Image via WikipediaMy alarm went off at 5am on my iPhone but being in a deep sleep I can only remember it vaguely before hearing a noise outside my window forcing me to realize I had over slept. I looked at the iPhone and realized it was 5:48 and swim starts at 6:00. I scrambled to get my suit and clothes on while trying to get a quick energy boost. I figured that I really have to 6:10 or I'd be really late. I biked as fast as I could ignoring a few traffic laws to make it. I was able to get in the pool and swim 100 before the 6:10 deadline.
Once in the water I realized that after my stumble during my run last night my ankle was a bit sore. During the kick set I really noticed a bit of pain. Luckily I overslept cuz' if I had woke up and felt pain I would have skipped swimming. But since I was in a panic to make swim I didn't really think about it.
Warm Up Set:
and some more swimming
2x25's Swim (was supose to be 4 but we screwed up)
Oh Shit! I don't remember this warmup. I know we had some 75's and 50's. Some of it was drill and some of it was swim. It was a long warm up set.
7x100's Free on 2x1:15, 1x1:10 and don't ask me the rest. I basically just went 10 seconds after my lane mate.
5x100's Stroke. I think 1:25. I did these backstroke
3x100's on 1:10. I made the first one with time to spare, the second one was touch and go and well the third one was impossible.
1x100 Stroke. I did IM.
Warm Down Set
125 breathing 3/7/3/7/3 on 1:50
75 breathing 3 times / 2 times / 1 time per lap
25 Fast I did the 25's fast
Today was Friday so it was my turn at the wall lane. I was hoping for easier intervals but one of the faster swimmers showed up so that was out the window. I made the intervals for the most part but technique went out the window. It was just a matter of me making the intervals. I should be able to do fast swims with good technique but today just wasn't one of those swims.
