    I know I said I would chalk up Tuesday's "dud" workout to recovery, but this was more in my "recovery wheelhouse". Looked at the practice on paper and thought I would really try to get after the last couple 300s, but 2400 yards with paddles really messes with your catch once you drop them. As evident from the first 300 N.S., it took 300+ yards just to get the feeling back in my hands!

    The rain was pounding down, then ten minutes later the sun shines through the rapidly moving clouds only for the hard rain to return another 10-15 minutes in an ongoing cycle for most of the time I was in the pool. Being moderately weary from yesterday, it was not until the second half of Set 4 that I began to get some momentum going. Then the guards temporarily closed the pool due to thunder, no problem, I had just started a recovery swim thinking about leaving early anyway.

  4. Week 52 - Thursday

    by , September 26th, 2013 at 09:21 AM (After a long rest)
    I woke up with the sniffles this morning and realized I did not take my allergy meds last night. I also iced my shoulder and elbow last night which helped a lot. I had no discomfort at all today. I suspect my stiffness and sore muscles are a result of lifting. I found the bag of sugar peas worked great on my back(flat and smooth) and the bag of Brussels sprouts worked great on my elbow(lumpy and hard). I never thought I would be a conocer of frozen vegetables.

    Today was another tough workout with a T20 in the middle.

    Warmup
    5x200 with snorkel on 2.45
    10x50 on 35
    100 easy
    T20 swim
    100 easy
    12x50 on 1min
    100 AFAP free

    Warm down
    100 easy

    Total 4400scy

    I ended up pulling the T20(my coach will be mad at me) but negative split the 20 minute swim and ended up going 1900yds. I turned at the 1000 at 10.35 and averaged 1.03 per 100 which I was pleased with. My arms were like jello after the T20 and had the shakes which went after hydrating and the 50 set. The AFAP 100 felt pretty good and went 54. My legs felt strong on this.
