Back In The Pool For The 2nd Time Today
Wednesday, November 12, 2008
I felt a bit antsy tonight so I decided to head to the 7pm practice. I told myself I'd take it easy and maybe just swim and hour. I sorta took it easy and I did get out after 80 minutes of swimming so I almost kept to my word. Lot's of fast swimmers showed up so we split to a FAST Lane and a Not As Fast Lane. I jumped into the Not As Fast Lane. I will admit I had a bit too much rest but the alternative of less rest was not for me tonight. Yeah, I almost lapped the last person in the lane but that might have happened to me swimming in the next lane.
150 Kick (750)
8x75's on 1:20 odds free / evens stroke. I skipped a 50 for a pee break as I always take during the kick sets. A kick rant: the swim rep two years ago and the coaches agreed to a suggested minimum 500 yard kick per workout. But on the same hand no suggested minimum pulling or drilling portion. That is so going into the survey answers!
(would have been a 600 but for me a 550/1300yards)
Oh damn! Here goes my yardage calculation as I forgot what we did here. I think it was 8x50's, yeah it was. So 8x50's on 50 free down / stroke back IM Order. (400/1700yards)
10x200's as follows
1x200 on 3:00 150 free / 50 choice of stroke (backstroke)
1x200 on 3:00 100 free / 100 choice of stroke (backstroke)
1x200 on 3:15 50 free / 150 choice of stroke (backstroke)
1x200 on 3:20 all stroke (backstroke)
1x200 broken as 4x50's on 60 (backstroke)
we then had some extra rest. I think we took 85 seconds rounding the clock to the 30.
Repeat as above but this time I did my choice of stroke butterfly.
50 easy (50/3750yards)
3x150's pulling breathing every 3/5/7. I did the first 2 and then a 100 of the last one and finished up. (400/4150yards)
I was beat. I enjoyed my 2 mile bike ride home. It relaxed me a bit. Soon I'll be sleeping very very well and getting up to swim in the morning. Only one swim workout tomorrow!
Today's swim totals: 3,750 short course yards and 3,250 long course meters.
Biking totals: 12 miles total.
Running total: 1.5 miles. I ran to the gym today and then ran home. It's a bit above .7 miles so let's round up.
Then I did 50 minutes of circuit weight training.
I'll be feeling all of that tomorrow!
Thats kind of epic. Nice work!
