My Once A Week Barely Swimming Swim Workout
Sunday, October 20, 2013
With all best laid plans that start in the morning my Sunday Plan was delayed due to the snooze button. Once up we had a short rain burst so that let me procrastinate a little bit more. Then once at the pool is started to drizzle so I took my time getting in the pool. Once I got swimming it was slow…
200 Free Swim
200 Free Pulling no paddles
5x50's Pulling w/ paddles. (650)
8x50's Stroke/Free by 25 Fly/Free, Back/Free, Breast/Free then Repeat. I stopped at 8 to jump in with the other Sunday Swimmers. (400/1050)
5x100's 3 all Kick and 2 Swim/Kick/Pull/Build (500/1550)
400 Negative Split. I messed up stopping the watch. It was like a 5:20. I did negative split by a few seconds.
2x200's on 3:30 Descending
1 2:38.8 200 1:19
2 2:30.0 200 1:15
Ouch! I'm so out of swim shape. (800/2350) Really this was a lot harder being out of the water. Swimming once a week isn't working!
6x50's on 1:20 Drill 25 / Fast 25 2 Fly, 2 Back and 2 Breast (300/2650)
Did a 50 cool down (50/2700) This was 3rd swim workout for the month of October. Ugh! I didn't even want to swim today.

I've given up on my little goal of 25 by 25 in which I'd swim 25 miles and run 25 miles between Sept 25th and Dec 25th. I may make the swimming but I haven't ran at all. I'll push pack that goal and come up with something for 2014.

Swim 8.125 Miles
