Back to Cactus this morning for a somewhat lonely Whoop-Ass-Wednesday workout. Laura was on deck and in fine form even on a 34/35 degree morning, but none of the fast guys who usually push me were there. The upside was that I had a lane to myself on this:

  • 1 x 400: 200 free, 200 IM k/d
  • 6 x 50: on 1:00, did 2 each fly-back-breast
    • odds kick
    • evens drill/build by 25s

  • Set #1: 4 rounds of
    • 4 x 25: on 0:20, free
      • held 14s, with the odd 13 and 15 in there

    • 1 x 50: on1:00, easy
    • 2 x 25: on 0:30, fast
      • 2 each stroke


  • 1 x 100: easy
  • Set #2: 3 rounds of
    • 3 x 50: on 0:35,
      • held 28/29 on free
      • did very last one on 3rd round fly

    • 1 x 100: easy on 1:50
    • 2 x 50: on 1:05, kick fast
      • rd1 : dolphin on back, back on back
      • rd 2: dolphin w/board
      • rd 3: flutter w/board


  • 1 x 100: easy
  • Set #3: 2 rounds of
    • 2 x 75: on 0:50, 44s on rd1, 46s on rd2
    • 1 x 100: easy on 2:00
    • 1 x 100: fast on 1:30
      • #1 IM @ 1:02
      • #2 fly @ 1:01


  • 1 x 100: easy

TOTAL: 3,250 SCY

Commentary:

  • I'm still puzzled as to how I could feel so great on Monday, so crappy Tuesday and then pretty close to great today.
  • Freestyles were fairly cruiseful on the short-rest 50s and 75s, maybe 85/90 percent effort. Good times for me in workout.

    I feel your pain. I've been all over the map as far as how I've felt in the water lately, too. Unfortunately it's been primarily on the "felt like crap" end for the several weeks.
