The weather this weekend was awesome and I spent a lot of time outdoors finishing an outdoor project I have been working on since the spring(with a heiatus over the summer because it was too hot). Long story short I am working on a gabion basket wall along the back of my property near the creek. I picked up another couple eof tonnes of rock and moved this and then back filled with top soil and finally added sprinklers along the top side of the wall where we plan on planting shrubs(green wall). It looks great but was back breaking!
I slept like a baby last night and woke up feeling pretty good. Todays workout was a version of our every other week test set of 300's and I am pretty pooped as I write this:
400free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on :45
5 x(2x300 pull on 4mins, 50 afap on 1min)
10x75 on 1:20 swum as 50 kick 25 drill
I started out holding 3:05 and dropped to 3:03s on the last 4x300's. My arms were burning pretty bad. On the afap 50's I started out at 26 high and on the last round went 25 flat. Unlike last week where I was hurting before I got in the pool from weights, today I worked this set hard and was hurting from work in the pool. I am heading back to the pool tonight to lift.
I did my 3rd yoga class on Saturday and I am really enjoying it. Its much harder than I thought it would be but the flexibility exercises and core strength exercises are awesome. I am definitely going to keep this up.
