Back In The Pool

Wahoo!  The last two weeks I've been in and out of the water due to some pain in my shoulder.  Now the pain isn't going away but I'm back in the water.  Swam a real full workout tonight for the first time in a week.  I was able to swim most of the strokes but couldn't keep my arms up and tight for streamlines off the walls.  And it wasn't till almost the end of the workout did I feel better in the water.  The main reason why I decided to swim tonight was that Friday night practice is only an hour.  Like 15 minutes make a difference.

Warmed Up a very slow mixed 400.  

Warm Up Set:

100 Kick

75 Kick / 25 fly drill

50 Kick / 50 Backstroke Drill

25 Kick / 75 Breast Drill

100 Free Drill.

For most of this set I did one arm drilling.  (500/900)  We did something else but I can't remember what it was.  I think I've done the same exact workout before so I should go back on my old notes.

Main Set:

I just swam this and I can't remember any of it.  That is what I get for just following the lane leader.

3x50's Fly/Back (150)

4x25's Fly (100/250)

3x50's Back/Breast (150/400)

4x25's  Back (100/500)

3x50's Breast/Free (we only did 2.  the lane leader was getting cramps and messed up the intervals so I sat one 50 out while we squared up to the other fast lane) (100/600)

4x25's Breast (100/700)

3x50's Free / Fly (150/850)

4x25's Free (100/950/1850)

Last Set (i don't remember the intervals):

100 IM 

100 Choice

100 IM

100 Choice

2x50's Free on 40 (500/2350)

It wasn't so bad being back in the water.  Yes my shoulder hurt but I managed.  Plus I didn't have to go that fast.  I just swam fast enough to make the intervals.
