It's almost embarrassing these days to log my swim workouts. Not only am I barely swimming due to work but when I do swim my swims are sad little swims. It's not getting any better. I will admit that not swimming on Sunday was all my fault. I was beat. I went to bed early, didn't drink any alcohol but when I woke up I just didn't want to do anything so I went back to bed and slept a total of 11 hours. That was Sunday as for Monday I teach spinning at 8:15am and 6:30pm. I should squeeze in a swim workout in the afternoon but I didn't. So even after teaching at 5:45am this morning I made myself hit the 10am swim practice. I didn't want to but I made it. I only swam for 60 minutes and not the 75-90 minutes we do. My legs were cramping up so I gave up.
Being Tuesday it was my day for lane lines so I did a 100 (not a 75. the watch recorded only the 75 cuz' I forgot to start the watch.) Then I pulled a 500. Don't know why the Garmin Swim recorded a 525. So a 600 yard warm up.
3x100's Kick with 20 seconds rest (300/900)
4x100's (ignore that 800 I f'ed up the watch) on 1:50 Swim/Kick/Pull/Build (400/1300)
300 Swim but picking up the pace on laps 3, 6, 9 and 12. (300/1600)
6x100's on 1:40 Descending in groups of 2.
According to my watch (which isn't accurate cuz' I gotta manually stop the button) my times were:
Know I know that 5th one I saw a 05 on the digital clock. But whatever. (600/2200)
12x50's with paddles easy down / fast back on 50 (600/2800) The watch recorded a 550 cuz' I forgot to start the clock. Since I had paddles on I also didn't stop in between 50's I just let the clock run it's course.
The all I got in was a 75 butterfly kick before my legs were done with me. (75/2875) So 2,875 yards in for today. But at least I swam. Which hasn't been much for me this Swimtober as seen on my usms flog
4.07 miles (=24,759 yards, =22,640 meters) so far for the month. Tisk! Tisk! This is were I'd normally give myself a goal for the rest of the month but alas I will not this time. Work comes first despite what I want to believe. I'll just swim when I can. Me no likey!
