Perfect Day for an Outside Swim
Wednesday, April 05, 2017
Perfect day for a swim. Good thing I slept in as the pool was closed this morning for monthly cleaning and what have you. I got to the pool for 12pm for the lap swim figured I'd swim an hour before lunch. I typed up a workout but do to time didn't finish it all.
3x100's Kick on 2:10 (300)
4x100's Pull w/ Paddles breathing every 4 on 2 (400/700/1100)
3x100's Kick on 2:10 (300/1000/1400)
4x100'sPull w/ Paddles breathing every 4 on 1:45 (400/1400/1800)
The first half I took a bit of extra rest chatting it up with some of the swim regulars. Stayed on intervals but chatted in between kick and pull.
4x50's Fly kick on back with fins on 60 (200/2000)
4x50's Fly/Free swim on 60 (200/400/2200)
I was going to swim more but it was 1pm and I was hungry. My fault as I didn't each much for breakfast just two slices of toast with preserves and two cups of coffee. But 2,200 yards isn't bad. The water was nice and cool as all the rain yesterday cooled it off. I've been getting a little more swim time in swimming about a 1,000+ yards three times a week after I work with my clients in aqua therapy. Since I'm in the pool I stay after while they get dressed then I have time to help them exit the facility with their scooters, wheelchairs or whatever.
