I took off the last 3 day weekend worth of swimming, and I really felt it in my swim tonight! My club team was at its Champs meet over the weekend where they ended up placing 3rd in the LSC. Very very nice improvement in the past year.
Between work, stuff, and getting my mother-in-law to Seattle for her flight out to El Salvador, and the return hell-trip over Snoqualmie Pass late Saturday night, including a motel stay an hour away from home...I was a busy and tired guy. Late late night driving and heavy snow in the mountain passes and a van full of family with no snow tires on didn't make the trip fun. It was a surprise snow storm, otherwise I would've put on my studded tires for the trip. Oh well, I live to write this blog...
Most of my group was gone tonight. I'm sure John told them to take the day off after the Champs meet.
600 (25 Free, 25 V-Sit Scull)
200 Free - I did a little extra while the others were finishing
12 x 100 SDK w/ short fins @ 1:25 (1:18-1:20s)
10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:30 - started at 1:11s, then 1:10s thru #7. Last 3 1:08, 1:06, 1:04
Mostly just aerobic...
3 Rounds of:
- 300 Free @ 5:00 (went ~3:35s)
- 200 Free @ 3:00 (went ~2:20s)
- 100 Free @ 1:15 (went ~1:05s)
- 50 Free @ 1:00
At this point I got out. I'm dead tired...not from the swim, but from my work schedule. I'm on 10 hour shifts this week, but on Monday's the 2 mechanics (me and another) come in extra early to do the weekly calibrations on the sizer equipment and stuff...in addition to dealing with the "Monday issues". Because both of us are there early, they make it "fair", and both of us stay to the end as well, so rather than a 10 hour day, it was actually a 12 hour workday, starting at 3:30am, till 4:00pm when I left.
At least the rest of the week I'm only doing 10s, from 4:00am, till 2:30pm.
Off to bed I go...if my body will fall asleep now after the swimming...
