Lap Swim Workout It Is
Monday, April 27, 2009
I overslept this morning so I skipped the morning swim workouts. Basically I woke up, felt beat up from the gym and swimming yesterday and just went back to sleep. Since I have plans in a bit I decided I swim a lap swim workout instead of the 7pm workout.
300 Kick (1000)
Then during the workout I had to share the lane at various times with people so I just swam a bit in between the other swimmers.
I did a 200 Pull fast in about a 2:20 then a 100 Pull fast in about a 1:05 I did a few easy 50's in between. (1300)
I then did 5x100's free kick on 1:50 and 5x100's free kick on 1:45. Normally I hate kicking but I was kicking as fast as my lane mate was swimming so it made sense. Plus I need to work on my kicking. (2300)
I think I then did a 150 pull / drill work. (2450)
300 Sprint Pull. I was cranking pretty good. I forgot what I did but I did it under 3:30 I think. Ahh...i can't remember but I know I was doing under 1:10's when I look up to get my splits. (2750)
Then did a 100 the same way before doing 5x50's pull burnouts. In that I sprint for a 25 and come easy back on 45 seconds. By the 5th one the sprinting part is getting harder. (3100)
Then I warmed down a 100. Hmm...I think I left out a 200 IM. So My workout was about 3400 yards. Not bad on my own. I really worked my kicking since normally I slack off during kick sets. The last 5 of them on 1:45 I was coming in on 1:30. I was huffing and puffing but I kept going. Someday I'll be able to kick without feeling like crap.
