6am or 7pm: Swimming On A Friday
Michael Phelps Is Heading To Canada, Eh!

6am Won Out Again

Last night I was debating on swimming at 6am or not so I hedged my bets and set my alarm for 5am.  Figured if I woke up and felt like going I'd go and if not then I'd go at 7pm.  I woke up with little fuss so I decided to go swimming.  Warm up and the first half of workout was a bit of struggle for me.  I felt super tight in the shoulders and upper back.  Must have been too much pull downs at the gym yesterday.

Warm Up
Then our warm up set.  I don't remember it all.  Some free, some stroke, some drill and some swimming.
50 Drill
50 Kick
25 Drill
50  Kick
It might have been 2x50's kick.  Whatever.  That is close enough. (350/700)

Then we had another quick warm up set to get the heart rate up.  Which is a blur to me.  I have a hard enough time remember the main set with all of it's different intervals and starting off at different ends of the pools. 

Main Set:
3x with a break after each round
25 Stroke on 30
3x100's Free
50 Stroke on 60
2x100's Free
75 Stroke on 1:20
100 Free
Now this is so the type of set I hate with different intervals some evens like 30/60/1:20 and some odd's 1:25.  That and having the set at the opposite end of the pool to the board that has the set and intervals.  It's not to the second round that I have a clue what I'm doing.  And even then it's requiring me to think way too much with all the math at 6:30 in the morning.  Because there was no other fast swimmers I went on a slower interval today.  The first two rounds the 3x100's were on 1:25 and the 2x100's on 1:20.  For the last round since at that point I had my own lane I speed the intervals up by 5 seconds.  For the stroke I did round one butterfly and then the rest backstroke.  (1950/2650)

Warmed down a 200.  So the yardage count is off since I don't remember the whole workotu but let's just say 2850 and call it a day. 

MTD Yardage: 61,900
MTD LCM:  6400

YTD Yardage: 176,550
YTD LCM 17,200
