The workout on the board wasn't exactly what I was expecting on a Thursday night. I decided to convert it to an endurance kick workout, which I haven't done in a long time. I was sharing a lane with Brad who was doing all freestyle, so it worked out fine. Fairly sparse attendance. But it was nice to see some of my teammates. I'm putting my compression pants on after bashing up my legs today.
I scanned the first 10 pages of my blog last night for workout ideas. Uh, I was training very differently in 2009 -- a much higher % of aerobic work. (Perhaps that why I survived several 200s that year.) And I tended to work all energy systems in a workout whereas now my workouts are much more focused around X purpose. It was also interesting to re-read my journey into the weight room. I'm definitely stronger now.
