Let's Have A Pull Party!
Thursday, November 29, 2012
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 on 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:
