Saturday Lap Swim - Doh!

Last night before going to bed I came up with the perfect workout plan for my Saturday morning.  I'd wake up and hit the gym about 6:10 do some weights then held over to the pool and swim.  Well for some reason after setting my alarm I didn't turn it on.  I changed my wake up time just didn't turn the alarm on, Doh!  Luckily my body woke me up about 6:30 and as i noticed the bright light outside I panicked and looked at the clock.  I jumped out of bed, grabbed my swim stuff and hurried it up to the pool for 7am.  Luckily it's close by and was at the gate before they even unlocked it.  Seven of my swim mates showed up so we took over two swim lanes.

Warmed Up

300 Swim

300 Pull

200 Kick

4x100's 25 Swim / 50 Drill / 25 Swim.  I did 2 free, 1 back and 1 fly.  No interval just go when the last person in your lane finished.  It turned out to be a 1:50 interval. (400/1200)

12x75's First and Third Rounds of (3x75's)on 1:20 I did them freestyle.  Second and Forth Rounds of (3x75's) on 1:30 I did them backstroke (900/2100)

A Set of 100's as follows - I did the first 4 IM and the second 4 backstroke.

100 on 1:45

100 on 1:40

100 on 1:40

100 on 1:45

100 on 1:50 these were also descend (800/2900)

16x25's on 35.  I did the first 4 just swimming, the second 4 breathing every 5 strokes, the third 4 breathing every 7 strokes and the last 4 all butterfly. (400/3300)

100 warmdown for 3400 yards.

Hmm...I am missing something.  Hmm...Oh well.  According to what the person giving the workout said I'm missing about 500 yards.  Since everyone got in later then I did they did a warm up of only a 400 while I did 300/300/200 or 800.  So I did 400 more then them and they said the workout was 3500 yards so I should have down 3900.  Meh.  Whatever.  I'll count the 3400 yards and call it a day.  I didn't do weights and need to go and pick up my race packet for the 13.1 tomorrow.  So no gym later as it'll be too busy.
