Crappy Tuesday Night Swim
Rearview Mirror: My August Workouts

Wednesday Morning Comeback To Swim

Well this morning's swim went better then last nights.  After warming up I felt good in the water making it a redemption workout.  I am actually shocked how well I was swimming this morning.  It wasn't easy and I had a lane full of swimmers pushing me to go faster and faster.

Warm Up

400 Mixed

Then we did a warm up set but I can't remember it all.  Between last nights swimming and this mornings it's all a blur.  I think it was -

3 Rounds (1 Fly / 1 Back / 1 Breast)

100 - 25 kick / 50 Drill / 25 Kick  ( i think)

50 Free Swim

50 Stroke Swim (600/1000)  Don't remember the intervals.  Even though I was leader.

More warming up...

150 Pull breathing 3/5/7 on 2:10????

3x50's Free Descend on 45

150 Pull breathing 3/5/7 again

3x50's Switches on 50 (600/1600)

Main Set:

300 Free  on 3:50

250 (50 Free / 50 Stroke / 50 Free / 50 Stroke / 50 Free) I want to say 3:25

200 Free on 2:30

150 (50 Free / 50 Stroke / 50 Fee) Don't remember interval.

100 Free on 1:20

50 Stroke.  Don't remember the interval but we waited for the next top.

300 Free on 3:50

250 (50 Stroke / 50 Free / 50 Stroke / 50 Free / 50 Stroke) Maybe 3:20 this time

200 Free on 2:30

150 (50 Stroke / 50 Free / 50 Stroke) Have no idea the interval

100 Free on 1:15

50 Stroke

I did backstroke for all the stroke.  Since I was leading the lane I really pushed myself today.  The free/stroke section were a bit more comfortable as my backstroke was stronger and was able to get some distance between me and the person behind me.  But the all free were a challenge.  I really had to work to stay ahead.(2100/3700)  I don't remember the last time  I had to work so hard in a workout.  Glad I lead the fast lane otherwise I would have slacked off.

We finished up with

4x75's. The 1st one was recovery, 2nd one the last 25 was with a 6 beat kick, 3rd one the last 50 was 6 beat kick and the final one was all with a 6 beat kick. (300/4000)

Damn that was a good workout.
