Thursday, Sept 6 - Getting a Swim In

Don't normally swim on Thursday because of Men's Group. But today is different because I'm heading to San Antonio for my Dad's surgery on Friday (prayers are welcome). Went to Men's group, came home to see my girls to school, packed, went to cleaner's, and went to pool to get a swim in. May try to swim in SA, but who knows.
Swam by myself. Fortunately, I'm pretty good at pushing myself when alone. Only swam 60 minute, but worked it hard and was worn out.
500 Free (6:50) on 7:30
50/100/150/200/250/300 on :45/50 interval (kept adding 50 yards until I could not hold :40/50 pace)
2 minute rest then back down
300/250/200/150/100/50 on :45/50 interval (kept my pace under :42/50)
5x100 BAck w/paddles on 1:40
Had not done a ladder (or hill, depending on who you talk to) since last spring. They may be the best thing for combining both speed and endurance. This wore me out.
