Would You Like Some Fly With That Swim?
Saturday, December 18, 2010
It was raining this morning so no running. Knowing that sprinkles were in the forecast I planned to sleep in this moring. Which luckily I sorta did. Slept to a little after 9am. Had a quick breakfast and then waited for the noon time lap swim. I knew I wouldn't be swimming a hard long workout but really had nothing planned out. Started off with an easy 600 warm up made up of 200 swiim/pull/kick.
Warm Up Set:
12x50's on 60 Switches. Fly/Back, Back/Breast, Breast/Free. I tried and was able to descend each group of 3x50's. (600/1200)
4x50's butterfly kick on 1:05 (200/1400)
rested a bit
2x50's butterfly on 60
rested before swimming 100 fly fast. Well I did a 1:09 so not that fast. I did try but about the end of the 75 I just was dying. It felt like I was on lap 7 of a 200 fly. I am really really out of swimming shape. But a 1:09 isn't so bad. I could have been even faster if I didn't do one really lazy sloppy turn at the 75 and if I had taken one more stroke into the wall at the end. Maybe next week I'll do one off the block to see what I could do with a start.
Then rested and chatted to someone walking by the pool area. Swam a 50 easy and then did 3 rounds of ab work in the water - 20 sec side to side, 20 sec front to back and 20 secs rest. So 1,650 yards. Not too much but enough. I gotta work to midnight tonight and then be back at 7am. Ugh! I'm off on Monday so my long run will be then and possibly an afternoon swim after.
