Solo at Rec (scy) - first Sunday dip since last April
200 FR/200 BK
4 x 100 FR Pull with buoy on 1:30
4 x 50 kick on 1:00
50 easy before my first ever LT set swiped from qbrain:
10 x 50 on 3:00
- did 3 FR, 1 Fly, 1 Back twice through, with 5 deep water bobs between swims
- 26.72, 26.94, 27.31, 28.94, 29.50, 27.12, 26.81, 27.06, 29.88, 29.63
50 ez before a long 300 w/d
(1900 yards, 80 min)
Our pool is open on Sunday's during the winter, and after being sore from yesterdays d-day I decided I would use the "extra" day today to do the LT set. Wow - what was I thinking?! At least I have a short day at work tomorrow - I see an afternoon nap in the works.
I usually see Kevin during the lunchtime and master's swims, and today he came in during the w/u and took interest in what I was planning to do. Good thing - every time I finished a 50 he asked what the time was, and he swam FR when I did the first backstroke. Again, so good to have an accountability partner in the water, which is still hovering at 85.
I noticed on the 3rd free of the LT set that I was not finishing my pull, so I worked to keep up rotation on the following ones. I started to feel the pain after the fly, and it just kept getting worse, just like q said it would. My heart rate did not drop too much, and after the last one I felt as crappy as I did after the 10K this summer. I didn't hurl today, though.
I did a slow warmdown to stretch out, then came home and collapsed on the floor for about 5 minutes before hoping the chair to blog. We are heading to the sister-in-law's house for a birthday party. I am hoping to crash on the couch and sleep during a football game if there is still one on.
I am glad that I did this, because it felt good to just push though the pain and crummy feeling. I will be looking to swipe some more stuff from q leading up to spring champs season - I am interested in joining his gridge with James for the 50 free
