Another Wham Bam Swam Workout.

I had the pool all to myself today!  I so wish I could have swam all day alone! BT0Al7eCEAAbvnTI wanted to but I didn't.  Two things prevented that with one being that I'm out of shape and secondly the Bromine in the pool was making me itch and burn like crazy. It wasn't to the end of my workout when I started to get itchy.  I thought I had gotten bitten by something.

Warm Up:
400 Swim.  And not my usual swim a 50 relax, swim another 50.  I swam the full 400 slow but non stop.  Total time 5:42 with a 1:25min average pace.
300 Pulling no Paddles.  A bit slower at 4:22 with a 1:27 min average pace.

Main Set:
12x75's Free pulling w/ paddles on 1:10
1    :59.4     75     1:19
2    1:00.5     75     1:21
3    :59.2     75     1:19
4    :56.8     75     1:16
5    :58.9     75     1:19
6    :59.2     75     1:19
7    :55.5     75     1:14
8    :55.8     75     1:14
9    :56.1     75     1:15
10    :55.6     75     1:14
11    :54.2     75     1:12
12    :55.0     75     1:13

I was at 1,600 yards so I was thinking I'd swim 2,000 yards and call it a day.  Hey, lunch was calling.  I already taught two spin classes this morning.  I started to swim 8x50's backstroke.  But my left side was getting itchy and sorta like the skin was being pulled.  After swimming 4x50's I got out.  In the locker room I searched for a mark or something but nothing.  When I showered I could tell it was the chemicals.  Ick!  So 1,800 yards.  Better then nothing.

Well it's the 10th of the month and I'm already ahead of March.  I should get one more swim in this week.  This weekend it's only Sunday as I have a training thing on Saturday.  That will be 8 hours of core work…maybe I'll find abs under my box of wine.  The rest of the month should get to me to at least 10 miles.  I'd love to beat my 13.44 but we'll see.
