Brrrr! 47F! It was a chilly morning on deck and in the pool. So didn't feel like swimming this morning. I shouldn't say that cuz' I did feel like swimming till I got in the water. I was on my own and just not motivated. I had a workout given to me but I sorta couldn't hack it on my own. I ended up modifying it then just not even finishing it.
Then 6x50's on 55 Breathing Every 3 going down and building coming back. (300/1000)
5x100's on 1:20. They were suppose to be descending but I was 1:17/1:17/1:12/1:14/1:12. Grrr…this is when I modified the workout or tossed the rest of the workout away. (500/1500)
500 Pulling. I was breathing every 3 for 2 lengths then breathing normal for 3 lengths. (500/2000)
2x100's on 1:20. I was a 1:12 then a 1:10. (200/2200)
That was it I gave up. Here is what the workout should have been after the 50's -
5x100 descending on 1:20
rest 40 sec
5x100 on 1:20 at the time of #5 above
rest 40 sec
5x100 on 1:20 - # 1 faster than above, #2 pace, #3 fastest yet, #4 pace, #5 faster
easy 200 back
6x50 on 1:00 with fins - swim fast
OH well. Another time. Actually I sorta didn't read past the 100's so never did see the easy backstroke and the last 6x50's. Oh well at least I got in 2,200 yards this morning.
In other news from the US Masters Swimming website "Final Top 10 Lists for 2011 LCM season 12/16/2011. The final Top Ten listing for the 2011 long-course meters (LCM) season is now available; this season ran from Oct 1, 2010 to Sept 30, 2011." I did okay. I got 10th in both the 200 butterfly and 200 backstroke.
I guess that is better then getting none. Hopefully I'll do better next year. Still upset that I was 11th in the 1500 for my age group. But it was 8 seconds difference so I really have my work cut out for me next year.
