Just Another Morning Swim

Despite my best efforts I beat the snooze alarm and made it to the pool this morning.  I don't know if that is a good thing or not.  Oy! SofaSince my last workout post I taught spinning Monday night at 6:00pm then again Tuesday morning at 5:45am and 7am.  That was enough.  No swimming on Tuesday.  So last night I told myself to go to bed and get up to go swimming.  It won't be so bad I told myself.  It won't be so cold I told myself.  I shouldn't listen to myself.

Warmed up a mix 450.  The Garmin Swim has 475 but I counted a 450.  I was pulling most of it so somehow it counted an extra lap in there.  I didn't use paddles but I did use the d-band pulling band for about 350 yards of it.  Then we did 3x100's kick with 20 seconds rest.  I didn't want to to math that early in the morning so I just did them on 2 minutes.  (750 yards)

Main Set:

2x200's on 3:10 (it was sorta on a 1:35 base)  I had to do at least 2x25's of it stroke.  I did backstroke the first and seventh length (I think.)(400)

3x150's on 2:25.  I had to do once again at least 2x25's of it stroke.  I did backstroke and I think the third and fifth length? (450/850)

4x100's on 1:35.  I had to do one 25 stroke.  I did fly for the first and third one and back for the second and forth. (400/1250)

4x50's on 60.  I don't remember what I did.  Some fly, back and free.  My Garmin Swim has me doing breaststroke but I KNOW I didn't do that! (200/1450/2200)

So 2,200 yards this morning.  Not too bad. 2012So I won't hit my goal of 250 miles this year but 200 ain't so bad!  I'm going to do my best to get in the water for a little bit at least once if not twice this week.  Even if it's a quick lap swim.  It's better then nothing.  Just gotta find some energy!
