8 x (4 x 50)
8 fly drills
8 25 shooter + 25 nubber drill
8 breast w/wiffle ball*
8 free, kickoff back on turn**
* This was amusing. It took a few 50s to even get the hang of this drill. I wish there was a rubber band attached to the ball. Still, with my head down further, I got into a streamline more quickly.
** Bad breakouts. It'll take awhile to figure out exactly when to start spinning around.
5 x smooth 200 IM w/fins @ 3:15
-- drilled fly
Just another easy workout. But I enjoy drills and technique work.
I woke up this morning with a very swollen ankle despite icing last night. Guess I sprained it ... At least I have the ankle brace from the last time I sprained it. This poses somewhat of a training dilemma. I had intended to focus on lower body work at the gym, but the ankle may restrict some of that. And I can't exactly kick hard with it either. Or do one legged yoga poses. I don't feel like doing much intensity right now anyway. Guess I'll have to be creative for a bit.
Off to another high school swim meet, which means I'll be on and not off my feet. Teen Fort won the 200 IM and 100 breast last night after a week sick with the flu. Despite looking just like me, she's such a different swimmer -- all short axis, no SDK and a slower turnover. Funny how that works.
