More Of A Warmup Then A Workout Swim

Quick Swim & A Nap Workout

Quick lunchtime swim workout.  Yawn!  I had a personal training client at 6:30am so no morning swim and after that taught a spin class.  In between I was reading and having a hard time keeping my eyes open.  After the class I made it home in time for the lap swim.  Got to the pool right at noon.  I don't know why I was still a bit tired but had a horrible warm up.  The pool water was pretty warm, ugh, summer.  No chillers means horrible swims for a few months.

Warm Up:

200 Swim

200 Pull

300 Kick (700)

I was planning a main set that wasn't long but not to easy.  Then I meesed up with my watch and called it quits.

Main Set: (sort of)

4x75's Pulling w/Paddles on 1:15 (300/1000)

2x50's Pulling w/ Paddles on 55 (100/1100).  That is when I stopped.  It was to be 6x50's.  Then I was going to do some IM. 

1    1:01.6     75     1:22
2    1:02.3     75     1:23
3    1:01.5     75     1:22
4    1:00.7     75     1:21

300 IM Kick (2x25 Free / 25 Breast, 2x25 Free / 25 Back, 2x25 25 Free / 25 fly) (300/1400)

3x100's IM on 1:50.  I called it quits after 3.  I was going to do 5 but my laziness and the warm water got the best of me.  I'm not good swimming alone.  (300/1700)

1    1:27.6     100     1:28
2    1:25.6     100     1:26
3    1:25.6     100     1:26

Not the greatest swim workout but it was a workout.  I took a quick nap after the swim.
