Grab Your Hats and Sunglasses It's Time To Go Swimming
Thursday, June 16, 2011
Thank you for the invention of the snooze button. This morning I so didn't want to wake up. The alarm went off at 6am, 6:10, 6:20, 6:30 and then I guess I slowly got out of bed. I really didn't want to get up and go swimming. But I did force myself out of bed and on my way to the pool.
450 Mixed / 3x100's Kick (one fly, one back and one free) (750)
3x200's on 3:20 Free/Fly. The first one was just getting the kinks out and getting use to swimming butterfly. The second one I was trying to gain some speed while still thinking of technique. The third was I was trying to hold it together with good technique and some speed. I sorta failed on both points. It wasn't horrible but the warm water made me wish I wasn't swimming. (600/1350)
6x100's on 1:50. I did 1 IM / 1 Fly / 1 Back / 1 IM / 1 Back / 1 Fly. By the last one I came in on about 1:11. My timing of my breathing was off. (600/1950)
Then I did 6x50's Pulling breathing 3/5/7 and repeat. (300/2250)
It was time to get out. 7:50ish. At 8am the Aqua Fitness class starts and they start getting in the water all dolled up with sunglasses and hats among other somewhat fashionable items in the pool at 7:40. By 7:48 they start to undo one of the lane lines. I keep saying I want to stay and do this class but never do. All them coming all dolled up sorta make me laugh to hard to take the class serious. Also I gotta remember to keep the noodlers at arms length as they are inferior pool beings. Anyways, so 2,250 yards for today. I was a bit sore during warm up but felt better as the swim went on. This afternoon I will be taking the Group Power class at noon and some weight training.
