After a long rest

Week 27 - Monday PM

Rate this Entry
I had hoped to arrive at the pool early to do weights and a swim, but I was late leaving the office and did not make it to the pool until 6.30, an hour after I had planned on being there. My coach decided that I should just swim a long workout. Luckily the pool was back to short course yards this evening which made it easier. I believe the pool is going to be LCM Friday evening - Monday morning and the rest of the week will be short course yards.

Total 6300

When my coach said that he wanted the last 500 under 5.10 I honestly did not give myself much hope of doing this but to my pleasant surprise I had an awesome set going 5.20,5.15, 5.11 and 5.05. On the last one I lost my paddle on the last turn somehow and lost time yanking it off so it would have been even quicker. I was really pleased with this set! The 1000s were more aerobic and after the 500s were a little anti climactic. Overall a much better day today despite the lack of sleep and I am looking forward to sleeping like a baby tonight.
