Got a swim in before lunch today, and felt good in the water after my first go at weightlifting on Monday. I will not being going heavy at all as I start up this crosstraining because I want to avoid as much residual pain as possible.
I'm now shifting into OW training gear, as the 10 mile swim is in 10 weeks, so there is no time for me to keep dilly-dallying. I will be working on longer sets with timed swims, and getting back into the 3-3.5k yardage per workout. I have found that some 25-50's fast stuff is just as important, so I'll be sneaking those things in, too.
On an aside, I am starting to play with feeding for the long swims - I have a huge jug of maltodextrin that I will be experimenting with (190 calories/0.5 cup).
Today's felt good. I came in around 1:51 with the pulls, and was finally able to descend the swim set (1:47,:45,:44,:41). The other swims we good, although I was not very peppy, which is understandable during this time in the training cycle.
I will plan to lift later this evening, and maybe swim after that. My sunny day off has turned into a very grey blah, so I will be mowing the lawn after a motorcycle ride (first of the year). I'll try to get a pic up of that...
