The 17 Days Of Swimming. Day Ten - D-BAND

Let's Have A Pull Party!

It's been a full week since my last swim.  Oy!  Not that I'm being lazy since I'm teaching spin classes almost every day.  My swim scheadule is Tues/Thur/Sat from 10-11:30 with the team here but I teach W1on Sat at 10 so that is a no go.  On Tuesday and Thursday I teach back2back spin classes at 5:45am and then 7am.  So swimming at 10 is killer!  I don't have enough time to eat and recover.  My class times/format will change in Jan 13' so for now I'll just swim when I can.  Like this afternoon!

Well this afternoon was more of a warmup then a workout.  I only did 1,000 yards.  Hey, I haven't swam in a week.  I only swam to try out a new toy which I'll post about later today. 

I started off just swimming a 200.  Nice and easy. 

7x50's Pulling on 55.  Why 7?  Umm...just I felt like stopping!  Basically I did one 50 then couldn't be bothered to play with the Garmin Swim so I just let the watch keep going to the end of the set.

7x50's Pulling with paddles on 55.  Why 7 this time?  Cuz' I ran into some swim mates and decided to chit chat.

Then a 100 easy.  So 1,000 yards.  Pretty sad but hey at least I got in a swim. 

Since tomorrow is the last day of the month and I work at 7:30am this was my last swim for the month.  My lowest yardage in a month in a very long time.  Let's take a look:
