Tardis Swim Workout
Sunday, October 23, 2011
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!
200 Swim / 200 Pull / 200 Kick (600)
3x100's 50 Drill / 50 Swim (Fly/Back/Fly) (300/900)
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.
