After a long rest

Week 34 - Wednesday

Rate this Entry
I arrived back from Houston last night pretty late. My original flight was scheduled to get back to Dallas at 7pm but because of the storms did not land until 10.30. By the time I dropped the guys I was traveling with back at the office it was midnight by the time I went to bed. The alarm went off pretty hard this morning at 4.30am and it was tough getting out of bed.mi made it to the pool early which was weird, and actually had a pretty good practice all things considered. I think I am still feeling some of the positive affects of my taper, because my stroke feels strong in the pool.

Warm up
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup drill on 45
10x50 kick 12.5, swim 12.5 by 25 on 50
4x200 on 3 mins getting heart rate up alternating IM and fre

Main set
4x(2x50 on 35 with fins, 50 back on 35 with fins, 100 kick on 1.30 with fins)
12x100 free on 1.20 holding under 1.05

Warm down
200 easy

The 200s in the transition set were pretty good, holding 2.20s on IM and 2.07s on the free. The 50s with fins I always find harder than it should be, but felt good today holding 25-26s on the free, 30 on the back and 1min on the kick. The pace 100s felt easy and I held 1.02-1.04s. Overall a good workout and no I'll affects from my lack of sleep last night.

    I don't know how you can get home late and go to 530am practice. I would sleep straight through my alarm. So jealous that you are still feeling positive effects of your taper. From talking to people it sounds like we may have a good turnout for our meet. Your blogs really help keep me motivated.
