My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

  1. 09.24.12 - Monday workout

    Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Ray and Leah. Took it easy on the soccer yesterday. It was 6 v 6 which means less running. We had a sub so I took advantage of that frequently. Probably ended up with 45-60 minutes on the field. I was sore today but not nearly as bad as I usually am on Mondays.

    SCY

    600 Warm up

    5 x 200 - 3:00 Odds IM, evens pull
    100 Easy
    On the first pull, my left goggle flipped backwards pressing into my eye socket. Even if I stopped, I would have had to take off the paddles, flip the goggles, clear them out, put paddles back on and then resume swimming. I chose to just suck it up and deal with it. Wish I hadn't.

    5 x 150 - 2:30 50 Kick sandwiched inside a 100 IM. Tried to descend... did the last one on about 2:02.
