PM only SCY

Sometimes you have it, sometimes you don' I did NOT!

600 swim (200 FR/100 I.M.)
6x100 @ 1:40 k/sw/dr/bld (did FR/BR/FR/BK/FR/FL by 100)

100 @ 1:15 FR (1:05)
200 @ 2:15 FR (2:07)
300 @ 3:15 FR (3:09)
100 @ 1:30 I.M. (1:15)
200 @ 2:30 I.M. (2:21)
300 @ 3:30 I.M. (3:29)

250 EZ

Total: 2650

So I felt really tight (should have actually stretched pre-practice today). I think I did not warm down enough after Monday's set and not doing a swim Tuesday due to the weather also set me back. The FR/I.M. set was 2x as written. I made it through one round (barely squeeked by on that 300) and couldn't drag myself through another round. I think I could have tackled the whole thing as a main set with more warm up, but launching right into it did me in. Time to regroup for tomorrow!

Swim Workouts

    It is impressive how fit you are and your capacity for intense training is remarkable. To do CrossFit and also USMS Masters swimming is pretty awesome. Because you clearly have a strong body (as it appears from the video), I would reinforce what have you already said about pre-practice preparation, warm ups, warm downs, and post practice stretching. In my personal experience, I have found that a few minutes of PT, stretching type band work before and after swimming as well as during other brief moments in the day can really enhance readiness and recovery. More recently I have also been putting more time in warm up and recovery. Finally, I just wanted to say I follow your workouts, that those low rest sets you do are amazing, and it is great the way you swim through the down days and put out so many good days.
