My last Sunday long swim. Starting next Sunday I'll be working on Sundays at 9:45am to 5pm on the Fitness Floor for the summer. I figured the pool water is going to be super hot so I wont' want to swim 2+ hours during the summer. So I'll just be going in at 7am and swimming on my own before work. So after fighting the snooze button I headed to the pool at about 7:45am. Well at least was in the pool at that time.
15x100's Pulling w/ Paddles as follows
For the most part started off on a 1:20 pace picking it up to a 1:15 towards the end. (1500/1900)
Easy 100 (100/2000)
By now the swimmers were arriving. With a pee break and some chit chat I got in 9x50's alternating kicking/swimming with fins. (450/2450)
Then we regrouped and the coach joked that I've been ab-dcuk-ted since I haven't been swimming. Ever since I didn't want to swim after the ducks were in my lane I get the brunt of duck jokes and puns. Funny thing was that on the way to the pool I saw a duck in the driveway at the house next door. Damn wild animals!
6x100's - 3 Kick / 3 Kick Swim. Had to take another pee break so missed a 100. (500/2950)
6x50's on 1:10 I think or was it 50? I pulled them without paddles breathing by 50 3/4/5/5/4/3
Rest 30 Seconds
300 FAST. I did a 3:32. Not bad. (600/3450)
6x50's Drill/Swim (300/3750)
And that was it. Now comes the part that I don't like. I skipped swimming on Friday which was a big mistake. It looks like I may miss my personal goal of swimming 100 Miles before the end of May.
I am .89 miles or 1,572 yards away from it. Now I know I got 4 days but I am working crazy time this week. Teaching 14 spinning and 2 boot camp classes. I'm going to try and at least splash around Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Even if it's just 1,000 yards or less. Not just to get to the 100 Miles but just to get in the water. The following week I will be teaching every morning at 9:30 so it'll be tough to swim before hand. I may try a quick 30 minute workout on a few of those days. We'll see but that is all in June.
