Today's workout was pretty easy to do. The intervals were manageable and everything was easy to remember as the whole workout was based on 400.
400 Reverse IM 50 kick/ 50 drill (i actually started the 400 then we held up for the coach then my lane restarted this 400 so I did a 500 total)
400 IM 50 Drill / 50 Swim (1300)
2x200's on 2:35
400 Pull on 5:15
4x100's 1:20 descend
400 Swim 200 Swim / 200 Race Strategy 5:15
8x50's on 45 Odds build / Evens Sprint
400 Swim on 5:15
8x25's (was 16 but we ran out of time)(2600/3900)
Not bad of a workout. We did have an occasional 15 secs extra rest in the main set in between some of the faster groups like the 200/100/50's. I got to admit I was feeling pretty good in the water today. First time in a bit. During the 50's I was struggling as my shoulder was acting up but by the 400 I was back on pace. I just like middle distance sets of 400's. It's get on a pace and just stick with it. Which is pretty easy to do. As for the 4x100's my first two just felt horrible. By the third one I was getting some tempo and the fourth was a breeze. These 100's were descend and my first two did 1:11's the third was a 1:09 and the fourth was a 1:05. Not mind altering fast times but at least I'm not lingering in the teen's for all of them as I was just a few weeks ago.
