I woke ahead of my alarm once again this morning. Despite being tired I had a good aerobic workout today, swum mainly on my own. It's funny how people avoid my lane and I think I know why; it's less about being lapped and more about not wanting to swim my workout(or my other hunch is I smell). Today I was the only one in my lane swimming a mid distance set, everyone else was doing 100s. I really enjoyed today's workout and was tempted to go back for more this evening, but my wife put an end to that thought by reminding me of my promise.
400 free with a snorkel
6x50 catchup drill on 50
10x300 pull with bouy and paddles on 3.45
4x(100 fast with fins with 10 seconds rest, 50 easy with fins, 50 fast with fins with 10 seconds rest)
100 easy breathing every 7
I held 1.10 pace throughout the 300 set and upto the last one felt pretty good. On the last 300 my shoulders and Lat's stiffened up and I had to push pretty hard to hold my pace. I think I can probably drop my pace or reduce my rest or both the next time we do this.
