Today makes one year at my "new" job at American Care. Wow - and I actually still like my job (if only they would fix the computer charting issues). So, I woke up this morning pretty sore from yesterday's weights - don't know why, I didn't increase the weights, or anything - but I HAVE had a couple of bad nights. On Tuesday, I had to leave straight from the pool & drive 3 hours to cover another clinic - then that night in the hotel I was up & down all night, listening to the traffic - didn't get to swim Wednesday due to being out of town & not really knowing the pool options there - then I had to drive back home & had a REALLY bad night where I woke up at about 11 feeling like I was going to barf - but I COULDN'T barf - went back to sleep, woke up at 1:30 & you would have thought I was on Lasix - and again at 3:30, and then suddenly it was 4:50 & time to go do weights.
Anyways, today I was sore the minute I woke up. Had to play catch with the cat (yes, the cat) and so ended up at the pool a little late. Did fairly well for the first 3000, and then my body basically just called it quits. And I was still sore, even after the 3000 "warmup". Basically the next set was a wash.
600 pull, done as 3 x 200; 100 hard/100 easy; 50 hard/50 easy; 25 hard/25 easy - only you didn't stop at the 200, you just kept going
300 Kick, 25 hard, 25 moderate
6 x 100 stroke/free @ 1:40
12 x 50 Pull @ :50; 70-80-90% by groups of 4
300 Kick, same as above
then 4 x thru (everyone else did 6 x thru): 200 @ 3:00, 2 x 50 @ 1:00, second 50 sprint & descend the 200's to an all out 200. Here is where I realized I had run out of gas - moved to the Leisure Lap Lane & just tried to finish - I did NOT do the 200's on 3:00 - in fact, I was just happy to do a 200. And I did NOT sprint any 50's. But I did get in a bit of yardage & survived the day. I believe tomorrow will be a much deserved leisure swim day at lunch time hopefully, while I work on my "tan".
