I didn't get to the pool until very late today and I was tight, extremely sore from the weekend. I went to bed last night feeling pretty good and woke up this morning with the delayed-onset soreness from yesterday's conditioning--the first drylands session in a week. I can't wait until my body is more fully adapted to those core exercises, etc.

The swim today was tough, felt like I couldn't get it out of first or second gear:

400 swim on 7:30 (7:00)
4 x 100 on 1:50 (alt. pull and fr)
4 x 50 on 1:00 (fr, desc. :45-:41)
8 x 100 on 1:45 (alt. pull w/ paddles and free)
4 x 25 fr on :30 (:18-:20)*
2 x 50 fr on 1:00 (:40)*
2 x 100 back on 2:15 (1:45-ish)
2 x 100 breast on 2:15 (1:47, 1:52)
100 EZ free

2500 SCY/48 minutes

*I initially planned to do at least 10 x 100 fr on 1:45, but was moving so slowly that I decided just to break up the last 200 of this set and try to find a higher gear. Hope tomorrow feels better!
