Nothing special for New Years, asleep by 11pm, awake at midnight as my wife's cell phone started making text message noises from all her friends...then back to bed. I'm really fun.
The next morning, we hauled the treadmill out of my dad's house...from the basement of all places...and brought it to our house. That is one heavy S.O.B. of a machine. My wife and I will put it to good use though. She'll do running, I'll just do walking intervals program on it while watching TV (my knee isn't made for running punishment). Better than being a couch potato, right?
I did 1.5 miles (30 min.) on Tuesday, and another 1.38 miles (25 min.) tonight before swim practice. I figure it'll help something, so I'll do it 3-4 days a week.
1000 DPS Free (finally!! a regular warmup!)
16 x 50 Kick w/ short fins on back @ :45 Odds Dolphin, Evens Flutter (I like dolphin better w/ fins)
400 Free Pull breathe every 5
We were really crowded tonight...7-8 per lane across the 3 lanes. Luckily we had the attached deep tank available, so tonight was circuit night, utilizing the deep tank widths for quick sprints.
Main Set: (20 min. on/1 min. to rotate)
10 x 100 Free @ 2:00 Max Rest
10 x 100 Worst Stroke (did Back) @ 2:00 Max Rest (whatever!)
10 x 100 Best Stroke (did Breast) @ 2:00 Max Rest
20 x cross pool sprints in deep tank @ 1:00 (pretty much a waste of time)
enough space to streamline a little, breakout, 4 strokes and look up for the wall
(~3300 Yards/5500 Yards)
5500 Yards and behind on GTD already! (didn't swim on Jan. 1st, and apparently at 9:00pm PST the GTD program already tacks on the next day's "goal yardage" as well, so I'm even more behind!
I set my goal for 1,000,000 meters this year, and if I swim enough over the summer with the club team I should be able to make this.
