After a long rest

I am a former swimmer, trying to get back into competitive swimming. I have been out of the pool 20 years and put on some extra pounds. This blog primarily documents my journey back to competitive swimming. And I should say having fun along the way!!!

    I am at a conference in Houston this week. Unfortunately I had a 7am meeting yesterday morning and then got hung up in a workshop last night; net result, no swimming yesterday. Today I headed Rice for there early morning workout. I was not feeling that great in warm up but ended up in the fastest lane. Today was IM day and I am not an IM'er(thank goodness). It was a tough workout!

    warm up
    600 free with snorkel
    4x(2x50 IMO by round as 25 kick, 25 swim on :55)

    Main sets
    16x100 on 1:20 as 2x100 IM, 100 free. With 100 free at the end!
    100 easy
    3x(4x25 back on :30, 300 pull on 4mins)

    warm down
    100 easy

    i was holding 1:12s on the IMs and 1:05s on the free. I was whooped at the end. There was a really fast young guy in my lane who was flying but I held my own!
