Today I finally had a morning to swim. No morning work shift and no morning class to lead. So it was early to bed last night and early to wake this morning. Of course sleeping into 6am is not early for me anymore. Thursday I was up at 3:30am to be feed, dressed and at work by 5am. OY! Since I've been working and skipping morning swims when the coach handed me my workout he wrote "Joel (WHO?)" on the top of my workout sheet.
1x500 Loosen (200 swim / 100 pull w/o paddles / 200 pull w/paddles)
300 Kick w/ fins on stomach/back/side by 25 (300/800)
main set -
1st Catchup on 5:00
2nd Negative Split on 4:30
3-6 Descend on 4:45
(1800/2600) The first one I stretched out but felt horrible! The lack of swimming was making me sluggish! The second one I negative split and did a 4:04. Then it was time for descends. I did a 4:00, 3:56, 3:48, 3:38 and hen a 3:29. Which considering everything I was pretty happy with.
The workout had some sprint 50's after but to be honest I was beat. I did a 50 easy and got out. Now I'm off to an Aquatic Program and Safety Demonstration before I head to the gym. Think I'm swimming a little bit for this thingy. Not too much swimming just demonstrationing butterfly or something. Either way I swam 2,650 yards for the day. I'll be back in the water on Sunday!
