  6. Monday 1/4/16

    Short swim on a chilly night for SC. I was happy to get out early to finish moving all of my wife's plants into the garage and shed.

    400 choice (did 300 w/snorkel and buoy, 100 back/breast)

    3 rounds of
    150 build
    75 build
    50 (80%,85%,90% by round)
    25 no breather
    50 same as above
    25 no breather
    50 same as above
    25 easy
    2 x 100 pull

    10 x 50 various pacing swims

    50 float and out of there

    I did manage to do P90 core before work which felt pretty good.

    We have a "prediction mile" on tap for Sat which will test my pace work I have been working on. No clocks or watches, you predict your time and the closest swimmer wins. You don't have to go fast, just hold your pace. I am not a miler nor do I ever want to train for it but I am looking forward to this.

    I took a little vacation last week and just got back in town last night. With a week out of the pool I decided to see if I could still swim before work. Short and lacking creativity......

    Davis mile slowly building up speed
    3 x 100 kick @ 2:20 descend
    200 IM drill/swim
    2 x 100 back @ 1:40 cruise
    100 back/breast by 25 cruise

    2450

    Nothing special but at least I made to the pool.

    Went on a brief jog tonight and mixed in a bit of stretching. I've got some vacation calories to burn off.

  17. Lesson Learned

    Lesson learned. I refuse to use the suit dryers at the pool for various reasons. Last night I gave in to temptation mostly because I am a guy and feel the need to push buttons and pull levers. After removing my briefs from the dryer I realized someone's washcloth was in there as well. That's it! Never again. I need to visit the suit washing thread and comment...
    I never wash my suits unless I find something nasty in the suit dryer. Geez

    i was was glad to have a relatively light workout. I spent the morning in jury duty which resembled The Hunger Games. I was fortunate not to get picked this time but it threw my whole day out of whack with work. I seem to always get selected and dodged the bullet today.
