I Feel Golden Kicky!
Thursday, April 14, 2011
This morning I woke up in the dead of the night to hit the gym. It wasn't much later then 4:10am when I started to get ready to go. I was attempting to be at the gym for the 5:30 opening. Debated on hitting the 5:45am Group Ride (spinning or 24cycle at other gyms.) But since I took my time and read emails instead of leaving I arrived at the gym about the time cycling, I mean Group Ride started. I decided to just do weights. But I did jump on the treadmill to warm up or wake up. But that didn't last. I so wasn't in the mood to run. Ran only a 1/2 mile. What is the point? I then did my chest / arms routine. By the time I was done it was almost 7am and I had to shower and eat before my 8am shift. Since I was thinking of doing spinning in the morning then at noon after my shift I'd do weights I packed extra gym clothes. While driving in circles in the golf cart for four hours I was thinking I'd try the 12:15 Arms and Abs Class. But by my relief was late so I missed that. I could have walked in a little late but decided to come home. I told myself I'd do a swim workout at the pool. When I got home I was so happy to see a magical box was delivered! My All New FINIS Zoomer Gold Short Blade Training Fins! It was like Chanukah and Christmas all in one day. Well maybe not that exciting but pretty cool of a day just the same. I had my lunch and waited to 3pm to head over to the pool with my new FINIS Zoomer Gold! I printed up a kicking workout the coach had sent me and brought a few other workouts. Figured I'd mix it up a bit but do kicking.
Warmed Up 200 free
200 kick with Fins excuse me FINIS Zoomer Gold Short Blade Training Fins!
6x50's on 1:10 with Fins, I mean FINIS Zoomer Gold Short Blade Training Fins! Fly under water going down, fly on your back coming back.
3x50's Sprint Kick on 1:30 No Fins
6x50's on 1:00with FINS or FINIS Zoomer Gold Short Blade Training Fins! Kick / Drill. I did 2 free, 2 back and 2 fly.
At this point I was over kicking. I was faster at kicking but still not a fan of kicking even with my new magical toys.
I then did 3x100's Pull on 1:30. And that was it. It was about a 45 minute swim. I actually was tired and the sun beating above wasn't helping me stay cool in the water. So a 1450 yard swim. Guess it's better then no swim. For more information on FINIS Zoomer Gold Short Blade Training Fins go to finisinc.com. I can't wait to swim with my mates and pull out my new toys for the kick set. I'll finally be able to keep up with everyone! Now I just realized I need a swim mesh gear bag to lug all my stuff around!
