What do you mean, no taper? Hypoxic day then...

OK so I swam and lifted today. Yes, I have a meet Sunday but it's in season and I want to keep working hard.
I felt tired at 5 am and forced myself to practice, I got about 1500 in and felt good and relaxed, ready to go again. So I took it fairly steady and modified the workout down by 1000 to round off with 2500.
4 x 50 1:00 breathe every 3
4 x 50 0:50 breathe every 5
4 x 50 0:45 breathe every 7
2 x 100 1:45 EZ
The breathe 7's on :45 were a bit hard for me; the first run I did 1, 2, skip 3, made 4 ( I made one of the 100 EZ's a 150 to pay the coach his yardage). Next time I went to a minute and did them. I'll try this set again sometimes but just be more generous with the interval.
2 x 50 K
2 x 50 P
2 50 D
25 AFAP 14-15 from a push. It felt very good and smooth feel like I'm ready to race...for mid season at least.
Got home; had an Endurox!
Late afternoon did half my typical weight session. Feel good but not drained.
