Back To Breast Then Back To Back Again Workout

It wasn't the 12 Days of Christmas just 12 Day of No Swimming!  But I forced myself to the pool this morning.  It wasn't till after a long battle with the snooze button but I made it.  I printed up Joe's 12workout from earlier this week with the intention of swimming it.  That didn't happen but I did some of it, the warm up and end!

300 free
300 rev IM kick-drill-swim by 25

4 x 50s free on :55
odds: strong turns
evens: six underwater fly kicks off each wall

Then I skipped his main set...

Final set
1 x 300 pull, lungbuster (breathe 3-5-3-7 by 25)

Then I kicked a 600 which was slow and I chatted with another swimmer the whole thing. (1,700)

Oh wait...something else...4x50's then 2x100's Free and fast.  (400/2,100)

50 Pull (2,150)

Then it was time to join the others...

300 Back Stroke..umm..100 something, 100 something then 100 build.  Maybe kick then drill.

Umm..100 Breaststroke kick, pee break then 100 Drill Breaststroke

300 Backstroke I think it was building each 100.  (800/2,950)

Then to finish it off...

3 Rounds 4x50's on 1:30.  1 Kick / 1 Drill / 2x Race Pace.  Back/Breast/Free by Round.  (600/3,550)

Thought it was more then that.  Thought I did around 4,000 yards.  Must have missed somthing.

Ugh...I need to swim about 15,000 yards by the end of the month to make 100 miles for the year.  I might be able to do it if I make it at least 5 more times.  But that is a big IF!
