Can I Even Call Myself A Swimmer Anymore? Workout
Sunday, March 16, 2014
Slept in, yet again! Well this has been a long week at work so I needed a few extra hours sleep. This past week I did get new Splish bathing suits and some new goggles. I ordered Barracuda HydroBat Racing Goggles which are my favorite brand from SwimOutlet.com. I don't know why I like them over other goggles but I just feel comfortable with them while swimming. I actually ordered a Clear Pair and Mirrored Pair (they called them Teal or Silver.) So wanting to try out my new stuff I headed to the pool alone today. No workout in mind just a quick swim before lunch.
Slowly Warm Up:
Then 6x50's Pulling on 60. I used the Sporti paddles since I forgot to get new straps for the other paddles. Ugh!
1 :39.8 50 1:20
2 :39.0 50 1:18
3 :39.5 50 1:19
4 :40.6 50 1:21
5 :41.3 50 1:23
6 :40.3 50 1:20
Like I said I'm slow these days. Plus I was enjoying the sun for a change. No need to push myself too much. (300/700)
Then I did another 200 Kick. (200/900)
Finsihed up with 3x100's IM on 1:45. I should have done 4 but that is all I could do. I'm out of swim shape.
1 1:23.3 100 1:23
2 1:23.4 100 1:23
3 1:22.3 100 1:22
I felt good but slow. I wasn't really there to kill myuself I just wanted to be in the water. I have a crazy month coming up in April so I might be stuck on the once a week swim thing for a bit. (300/1200) At least I got some swim in.
My Progress for Go The Distance 2014
Month Total Distance
Jan 2.76 miles (=4,850 yards, =4,435 meters)
Feb 4.15 miles (=7,300 yards, =6,675 meters)
Mar 3.04 miles (=5,350 yards, =4,892 meters)
Total 9.94 miles (=17,500 yards, =16,002 meters)
Umm...I swam less yards in three months then I use to in one month. I use to swim 3,500 yards in one workout. I'm a bit frustrated at myself but at least I'm in shape out of the pool. I'm teaching lots of spin classes and a few other strength classes. So I'm in the best shape ever but no running anymore and very little swimming. I'm hoping to at some point drop a few classes so I can swim at least one or two times a week.
