I felt sluggish this morning after taking the weekend off. It got better as the workout went on. This was the first of my swim camp workouts and I will be heading back to the pool for a longer workout after lunch. The plan is at least two swims every day. Luckily my shoulder felt better today, so fingers crossed it is on the mend.
400 swim with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
4x200 build with 15 seconds rest(went 2.20,2.17,2.15,2.12)
All done with buoy and paddles
5x100 on 1.15
4x100 on 1.10
3x100 on 1.05
2x100 on 1 min
1x100 on 55
12x100 on 1.25 done as 25 easy, 25 finger drag drill, 50 build(held 1.07-1.10)
2x500 kick with fins done alternating 100 free with board, 100 back with 20 seconds rest between 500s
Last week I went 5 seconds slower on the send off and made it pretty easily. This week the extra 5 off was really tough and I was unable to make the last 100 on 55. It ended up being more like 3x100 on 1min. In reality this is still a really good set for me. The weird thing was that I did not feel like I failed per se, but rather I just could not go any quicker. We are planning on ramping up the yardage again this week and throwing in some select quality sets. I know I need to get some speed somewhere between here and nationals also!
