Been feeling pretty fatigued from the last couple weeks of workouts. Decided to have an easier weekend. Took yesterday off. Couldn't go to my team practice today, as Mini-Fort was swimming one event at Junior Champs (200 fly, dropped 5 seconds, used my Pro). In fact, I'm worried I won't get to a team practice in awhile as the next 3 weekends are Senior Champs/JOs/Senior Sectionals with a regatta and soccer mixed in. Hmmm... Going to have to beg Mr. Fort to stop traveling so much during the week.
Spoke with Mini-Fort's coach for quite awhile today. He was grilling me about my Auburn times and training. I told him, as I've told others, that the heavier lifting + the fact that I don't use kick sets as recovery is huge. He is really urging me to swim the 50 free at Sectionals. I hadn't really realized I'd made the QT. (Oddly, I missed in the 100 fly and 100 back, my real strokes.) Think I'll probably pass though, as it's the weekend after Albatross and may conflict with Fort Son's regatta. Plus, my time is not in the SWIMS database, although he seemed untroubled by this fact. lol.
Anyway, swam at the gym pool today, which happily was a relatively chilly 85 degrees. Just did a recovery workout.
800 variety warm up
4 x (10 x 50) @ 1:00
odds breaststroke pull
evens single arm fly drill
odds, 25 belly shooter, 25 easy
evens, 25 back shooter, 25 easy
(I couldn't find my nose clip to use on these, and was actually disappointed. May have to order in bulk.)
all 10: 25 easy speed/DPS fly, 25 easy
all ten: tempo flutter kick w/board
50 fly AFAP w/fins (went 27, felt dreadful)
Hip is still twingey. It's a 2 step forward/one step back kind of thing. May quit lower body weight work until after the Albatross meet to let it fully recover and then re-start this project slowly and carefully. Very annoying. Will see chiro this week too.
Last 2 week summary:
swim, 5x, approx 17,200 yards
swim, 5x, approx 19,200 yards
run, 2x, 10 miles
spin, 50 minutes
OK, this confirms I overdid things a bit last week, may have overtrained. Biggest problem with the weights is it makes it really really hard to do lactate work. I feel as though I haven't gotten much in lately. Would like to get in more fast 25s and 50s this week.
