Sunday Afternoon Baking In The Pool

Another Good Friday Swim

On Thursday I pretty much skipped swimming and my weight training but did get in a spin class.  I just wasn't feeling it but I did have a yummy pastrami sandwich for lunch.  But this morning I got up and hit the 6am swim practice.  I'm glad I did as I'm feeling much better after the workout.  I am going to make up my missed weight training by going to the gym later today. 

Warmed Up a 250 before we started our warm up set.

1 - 75 Drill on 1:25
2 - 50 Drill / 25 Swim on 1:20
3 - 25 Drill / 50 Swim on 1:15
4  Swim on 1:10
I mixed it up with some stroke work.  I even did a very brief bit of breaststroke. (600/850)

This is were we did some 50's kick and some 50's swim.  Umm...hmmm.  I know I took one 50 off for a pee break.  Damn.  I think it was at least 8x50's kick.  1 and 5 had to be butterfly on back.  Then we did some light sprint work to get the heart rate up.  (350/1200 i'm low balling the yardage since I can't remember it)

Main Set:
1x100 Free on 1:10
4x100's Free on 1:20 the 4th one is fast
1x100 Free on 1:10
4x75's 3 & 4 are fast (which i did butterfly) on 1:10
1x100 Free on 1:10
4x50's 2, 3 and 4 are fast (which i did butterfly) on 50
1x100 Free on 1:10
4x25's all fast on 30 (i did these freestyle) (1400/2600)

150 on 2 mins breathing 3/5/7 by 50'
3x50's on 50 breathing 1 down / 3 back, 1 down / 2 back and 1 / 1  I did as best as I could with a few extra breathing from time to time.
Warm Down a 200 25 drill / 25 swim (600/3200)

That yardage doesn't seem right but alas it is close enough.  I'm so glad I went swimming this morning.  The last few workouts I haven't been alone in the fast lanes which is good as I need to be pushed.  I was seriously considering starting to hit the 7:15 workout for a challenge. 

MTD Yardage: 36,300
MTD LCM:  3,700

YTD Yardage: 216,100
YTD LCM 25,000
