Friday Night Swim

Finally back in the water again.  After taking a few days off letting my shoulder / neck pain thingy heal it was time to hit the water.  I decided to head the pool before practice and hit the lap swim.  That way if I felt any pain I'd just get out and no one on the team would see my drowning in the pool.  So I got in the water and did a nice easy broken 1,100 yards.  Since I felt comfortable I decided to stay for the workout.  Friday night is only an hour so I figured I could handle it.

Warm Up
200 Free (200/1300)
4x 50 kick / 25 drill / 25 swim reverse IM order (400/1700)
50 (i got a 50 in before we held up) (450/1750)

We then headed to the deep end to do some ab and kicking.  Six rounds of 20 second abs front to back, 20 seconds side to side and 20 seconds deep end kicking hands out of water.  Then three rounds of 20 seconds deep end kicking hand out of wate and 20 seconds deep end kicking hands in a streamlined position.

75 easy to the shallow end (75/1825)

Main Set:
4x25's Fly on 35
1x100 IM on 1:45
4x25's Fly on 30
1x100 free
2x50's Back
1x100 IM
2x50's Back
okay so i don't remember the full set.  this was a few hours ago and i've had dinner and played some nintendo so I don't remember the full set (700/2525)

I felt pretty good in the water.  I had a bit of a odd sensation like I had a knot in my shoulder and upper right arm.  I did move into the medium lane so I wouldn't over due it as I'm just getting back in the water.  It felt good to be back swimming.  Now hopefully I can stick with it and fully recover.
