TGIF. Not only is it finally Friday but also the sun is finally back! After swimming Tuesday night I woke up on Wednesday but the rain kept me in bed. Then yesterday it was raining like crazy so I skipped the evening workout. I haven't ran or hit the gym for weights since Tuesday and was getting restless. So this morning I told myself I had to swim rain or no rain. Woke up and could hear the rain coming down so as I layed in bed debating on getting up and I could the showers start and stop. Figured I'd get up and go and at least try to see if we can swim. I got to the pool and was glad that the rain had turn to a light drizzle. One by one my fellow swim mates showed. up. Since the pool is outdoors as well as the locker room everything was wet. No biggie since I was going in the water but post workout was going to suck.
Jumped in the pool and started to swim. Don't know why but it felt like I hadn't swam in months. For the whole workout the rain would come and go. At times between the rain and the steam rising from the pool it was a bit difficult to see the clock or anything mo.re then 10 yards away. Also swimming backstroke in the rain sucks big time. Therefore I did my best to work on my underwater streamlines for as long as I could go. As for the workout itself it wasn't that bad
Then we started a warm up set. 4 Rounds IM Order
100 Kick on 2 mins
2x50's Drill on 60 (800/1500)
Then we did a little bit more warmup before our main set. But what was it. Shit. I know it was 4 Rounds with 4x25's on 30. Doh. Oh well don't remember so that was it unless I remember. (400/1900)
50 easy (50/1950)
Four Rounds IM Order (see a pattern)
100 Easy Free on 1:20
100 IM on 1:30
4x50's on 50 with breaststroke on 55. The last round of free we only had enough room to do 3x50's. (1550/3500) Hopefully over the weekend I will get in one swim and one good long run. Gotta workout before the next week of rain comes to LA.
