Yesterday AM I did 2200 SCY in 45 minutes (didn't have much time, because of a meeting at work). I thought it should be an easier day since the broken 1650 and IM torment ladder the day before. Here's what I did:
400 EZ free on 7:30
4 x 50 fr on 1:00 (:38-:40)
4 x 100 IM on 2:00 (1:40s)
5 x 200 IM on 4:00 (3:32-3:39)*
200 EZ free
*Seemed like an easy day on paper because of the reduced yardage, but... where doing 200s free on 4:00 is a piece of cake, doing 200 IMs on the same interval is still quite challenging for me... after reps 2 and 3 I gave myself an extra :30 (so really it was 3 x 200 IM on 4:00 and 2 x 200 IM on 4:30), adding an extra minute to the workout. I would have liked a longer cool-down, but was running out of clock.
Today I'll be able to get a lunch-time swim in, I'm considering some higher intensity stuff with shorter distances to prime the pump for Sunday's meet. No strength/conditioning work for the rest of the week. Maybe I can get back to my Yoga in the next couple of days.
