Week 20 - Wednesday am IM

I had another rough sleep night last night. I woke up around 1.30am with lots of things rattling around related to my upcoming saudi trip. I must have fallen asleep again around 3am and when the alarm went off at 4.30 It was hard getting up. I was a little sluggish in the warm up but got going and the lack of sleep did not affect me too bad. I suspect I will be tired tonight.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
6x200 IMs descend 1-3, 4-6 on 2.50
8x50 breast on 50
4x100 fly with flippers on 1.20
3x200 back on 2.45
10x50 free on 35
10x50 with flippers on 30
I went 2.25 on the 200s which I was really happy with, and then pretty comfortably made the 50s on 35 holding 32-33. The 50s with flippers were tough and I missed a few but just turned and went again. After about 6 I was off a couple seconds on the send off but got back on for the last 4. This is the first time I have made this set. Short swims with flippers I always find tough and in particular my legs always burn. The lactic acid build up in the legs combined with more time under water somehow make this much harder than it should be.
