I'd Rather Be Sleeping But Swimming Won Out This Morning.
Saturday, December 01, 2012
It's a new month! With 21 days to the end of the world I hope I can get in a few more swims. So last night I went to bed and set 4 different alarm times on my iPhone to wake me up. Actually I was foolish to set it really really early. Why? I don't remember. But I was tossing and turning from about 3:30am to about 5:00am so when my first alarm went off soon after that it was an hour and twenty minutes of battling snoozing.
I got to the pool and had a workout all waiting for me. Which was good since I wasn't feeling ready to swim.
500. I didn't start the Garmin Swim to after the 1st 25. I was still sleepy. I swam a 200 then it was time to play with my D-Band Pulling Band. Pulled a 100 w/o paddles then a 200 w/paddles. Hmm...the Garmin Swim has me a 525 so maybe I got in an extra 50. I was chatting it up from time to time so maybe. Let's say 500 though.
200 Kick. The workout called for a 300 but I'm teaching spinning in a bit so I didn't want to use my legs that much this early. (200/700)
400 Swim pushing laps 4, 8, 12 and 16. (400/1100)
Avg Pace: 1:21 min/100 yd
6x100's Free on 1:30. Descending 2, 4 and 6 (600/1700)
I missed starting the watch on my 1st 100 but when I looked it was a 1:21
1 1:18.6 100 1:18
2 1:19.8 100 1:20
3 1:14.2 100 1:14
4 1:21.9 100 1:22
5 1:09.9 100 1:10
Then just did 4x50's pulling with d-band no paddles. Drill 1 and 3 with catch up and just swim 2 and 4. The actually set was 8x50's choice drill/swim. Meh! (200/1900)
So a 1,900 yard workout. Better then nothing. Now breakfast and spinning.
I am so not going to make my yearly Go The Distance goal. But I should get to 200. I guess that is something.
