Tardis Swim Workout

Last night I went to bed early with the intentions of running an easy 3 miles before heading to the pool but when the alarm went off at 5am I hit snooze.   Then hit snooze again and again till it was after 6am.  So no running today.  Grrr...I'm getting lazy.  Since I got to be at work at 9:30am I decided to do a quick workout.  Even after years of waking up early for working out I am so not a morning person.  In order for me to be awake and somewhat happy for work I need to workout before hand.  So I was at the pool at 6:45.  Luckily they had just opened the pool.  By the time I got my lane, the clock set up and my gear on deck it was about 6:50.  Now before I had left I quickly looked up old workouts from October 2008 via the Tardis (okay not really but I did use my blog.)  As I was looking at the workouts I had to skip down most of them just cuz' the intervals were way to fast for me.  I couldn't believe how slow I am now.  F!

The Workout:

200 Swim / 200 Pull / 200 Kick (600)

3x100's 50 Drill / 50 Swim (Fly/Back/Fly) (300/900)

Main Set:
3 Rounds -

3x50's on 60 Fly/Back, Back/Breast and Breast/Free

100 on 2 minutes IM

I tried to descend the 100's.  My first one was slow at 1:25 then 1:22 and finished about 1:15/16.  I was doing to do this set another round as my goal was to be under a 1:15 for the IM.  But I wanted to get home and have relaxing time and breakfast before going to work.  (750/1650)

So a somewhat quick and easy workout of 1,650 yards.  After my shift I'll do a weight training workout.  I'll be working so no Group Kick (kickboxing) for me today.
