  2. Workout 09/30/14: evening

    by , September 30th, 2014 at 09:27 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Went for a two mile run yesterday (which was about 1/3 trails) while the boys watched a soccer game. Staycation so far has been very unproductive, which might not be a bad thing. I will try to help out with some construction projects at the college's library tomorrow, then planning for a long (and overdue) motorcycle ride Thursday.

    Tonight Greg, Carol, and (newcomer) Rachel joined me for a Kiefer inspired workout:
    200 Swim/100 kick/200 Pull (I did an extra 200)
    8 x 25 drill

    2 x
    - 25 kick :10sr
    - 50 choice :10 sr (bk)
    - 75 drill :10
    - 100 hard (went 1:06, :07 by round)

    100 kick

    2 x 200 on :10 (I did 250)
    2 x 50 on :20
    [first round = perfect stroke, second round broken halfway for :10]

    200 loosen and out
    (Masters/Rec/2200 yds/65 min)

  3. Week 105 - Tuesday

    by , September 30th, 2014 at 08:31 PM (After a long rest)
    I lifted hard last night and probably over did it because when I woke this morning I was really tired and in a lot of pain. This carried into the pool and had a horrible horrible practice. Definitely out of sorts at the moment. I am also struggling a bit with lack of direction at the moment. I sit down with atom tomorrow which will help get me going again. I seem to work best with some goals and since world's I have not really had any.

    Warm up
    16x50 free with snorkel on :50

    Main sets
    Drop a second 100s starting at 1:30
    100 easy
    10x50 kick on 1min

    Warm down
    100 easy

    total 3500scy

    i only dropped to 1:10 today which is 7 less than I did the last time we did this set. I could have done more but was hurting and just did not have it in me to dig deep today. I don't know if I was a whimp and should have gone for it today or was smart listening to my body.
