Another Swim For Today - SCY Workout

It's all a blur but after this mornings LCM swim I did hit the gym in the afternoon for some weight training.  Then it was back to the pool for another swim this time a SCY Swim. 

I don't remember all of the workout but here is the gist of it:

500 Swim

100 Breaststroke.  I don't know what is up with all this breaststroke of late but it must be some evil plot against me. 

We then did a bunch of 25 BREASTSTROKE drills.  I'd say about 6 or a 150 (750)

Main Free Set:

2x100's 50 Drill - One Arm / 50 Swim.  No interval just 10 seconds rest. (200)

300 Pull no paddles Distance Per Stroke (300/500) There was also no interval for this just take 15 seconds rest.  Now today's fast lanes were a bit of a mess for distance free set like this.  In one lane we had this super duper fast guy and me.  Then in the other fast lane we had the sprinters.  So I moved after the 300 to the lane with the sprinters which was a mistake since it was a distance set. (300/500)

2x400's Free 5:15 (800/1300)

2x100's 50 Drill - Fist / 50 Swim (200/1500)

300 Pull no paddles (300/1800)

4x100's on 1:15 Descend (400/2200)

4x100's on 1:20 (400/2600/3350)

Then we did a 50 easy (3400)

Now time for some stroke.  More Breaststroke Follows! 

50 Kick / 50 Drill BREAST STROKE (100/3500) was supose to be a 100 KIck / 50 Drill / 50 Swim (100/3500)

Stroke Set:

200 Breast Stroke (I was told to just swim it and not worry about an interval since it is breast stroke) (200/3700)

2x100's on 1:40 I did these backstroke (200/3900)

4x50's on 50 I did them fly / back / fly / back.  (200/4100)

Then I just warmed down a 50.  I should have warmed down more but I was so beat.  Moving my arms just wasn't about to happen anymore.  Tonights yardage was 4100.  Add in the morning long course meters and that is one hell of a day!
