Poached In Leezbugz
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
It's unofficial but today I think I swam in the hottest pool evah. It was brutal this morning. But a swim is a swim and I'm just glad I'm swimming and have a place to swim in. Today being Wednesday we headed down to Leesburg to swim at 5:30am. Being by the lake and the only lights on in the area the place is a magnet for bugz. Some of which I've never seen before. I gotta admit some of them are a bit creepy. It's better not to think about them when swimming. Since the pool has the flags up I decided to make this a backstroke workout.
The workout sent via email -
1x200 kick with fins
6x50 on 1:05 - kick/drill
2x200 on 3:20 - 2nd faster
2(3x100) - 1st set on 1:40, rest 1:00, then 2nd set on 2:00
4x50 kick with fins on 1:15
2(4x50) on 1:00 - 2nd set faster - rest 1:00 betwen sets
Actually what we swam was...
1x200 kick with fins (200/700)
6x50 on 1:05 - kick/drill backstroke (300/1000)
2x200 on 3:20 - 2nd faster backstroke (400/1400)
2(3x100) - 1st set on 1:40, rest 1:00, then 2nd set on 2:00 backstroke (600/2000)
4x50 kick without fins on 1:15 (200/2200)
2x50's butterfly (100/2300)
So 2,300 yards. My backstroke was a bit of a mess. My backstroke was never pretty but it's gotten really really ugly. Since the pool we swim in almost never has flags up I've gotten the bad habit of looking all over the place. I'm bouncing like a pinball down the lane. I don't know how to break out of this habit but I got to. Once again I'm glad to be swimming and just got get through this.
