Slow Poke Afternoon Swim

It's a fact, I'm getting slower and slower. It's all my fault since I can't get motivated to swim as much as I did a few months ago. Today was my first swim in a week. I can sit here and blame my crappy job that has me in at 6am, 7am, 8am or have me work to midnight but really it just boils down to me.  I'm unmotivated.  I will blame it somewhat on the cold weather.  It's hard to be motivated to hit the pool at 7am when it's below 30 F outside and it's an outdoor pool.  After working today from 7am to 3pm I decided to hit the pool.  By the time I got home and got myself together I was in the pool at 4:15ish.  I didn't swim too long since I was unmotivated and really tired.  Standing on my feet all day is also killing me!  Ugh!  Anways, enough complaining and on to the workout:

Warm Up:

300 swim

300 pull

300 kick

100 swim

The warmup itself was a killer for me.  My calves were sore from standing and my arms hurt from not doing anything at all.  I'm getting fat and lazy!  Ugh!

Main Set:

8x50's Free on 40

rest 1:40

4x100's Free on 1:20

rest 1:40

400 Free I kept under a 1:15 pace.  That was my only goal!  Well that and finish the swim.

Swam a 50 to relax / warm down.  So the workout was only 2,250 yards.  But it's my first swim in a week.  Better something then nothing.  I'll be back in the water tomorrow.  Hopefully in the morning but I may sleep in as it's my day off.  Either way I need to swim and get in a run.  At this rate I'll be a contestant on The Biggest Loser by Season 13.
