Making It Up As I Go Workout
Sunday, June 26, 2011
Sunday is normally my double workout. I swim on my own with a workout the coach gives me then I stay and swim with the rest of the group. But since most of that group is out of town I just went and swam on my own. The coach asked me if I needed any workouts to swim while he was away but I told him that I had enough workouts to do. Which I do but once at the pool this morning I just made up the workout as I swam.
Warmed up a 200 swim then a 200 pull. Mind you the first 200 was more like 4x50's since I stopped after every 50. Then I did a 400 IM kick. Followed by 300 IM Kick/Drill/Swim by 25. (1,100)
Then I did 10x50's on 50 pulling w/ paddles alternate breathing by 50's every 3 and 5. (500/1,600)
Then I modified the set from the other day...
3x50's on 50 Fly/Back, Back/Breast, Breast/Free
100 Free pull on 1:30
That wasn't so bad. The last 50 into the 100 pull was close since I had to put on my pulling gear. Which just made me work the last 50 a bit faster. (500/2,100.) And that was the end. About 50 minutes in the pool for 2,100 yards. Not great but not bad. So not motivated on my own. And today was a perfect day to push myself. It had rained yesterday so the pool was about 5 degree's cooler at about 86F. Which a few months ago I would have been dying. But after a few weeks of water temps in the 90's I thought the pool was nice today. Also the outside temp is about 20 degrees color also. So I should have done longer swims today. Oh well, hopefully I'll be motivated the rest of the week while I swim alone.
