I hit traffic on the way home from the office which delayed my swim 30mins or so and as a result I did a short high intensity workout. Our pool is closed next week and I am still looking for an alternate masters program in the Dallas metroplex for next wee, then we start up 6 mornings a week and I will be back at two a days in September; I can't wait. It's looking like I will be doing some USA-S meets this fall and likely a short Taper in late November or early December. I would prefer a short course meters meet than a short course yard meet, but I have not decided yet on the Taper meet. Back to today's workout. I focused on my kick set with a good warmup and warm down. Yesterday my lower back felt pretty tight so i decided to give the kick board a miss tonight and went with back kick.
500 free with snorkel
10x50 catchup on 45
10x150 kick with fins Best average on 2.30
5x100 IM with 10 seconds rest
I went 1.24 on the first 5 and then went 1.25,1.26,1.25,1.27,1.24. I was so tired I could not get out of the pool and when I did get out my legs were very wobbly. I really need to work on my legs in the weight room as part of my workout this fall, but I know from prior experience I hate working on my legs! It always hurts so bad.
