After a long rest

Week 49 - Saturday

Rate this Entry
I had a good nights sleep but I was still sore when I woke this morning. Not the same overall ache from yesterday but my tri's, Lat's and chest were still sore. These areas remained sore throughout today's workout but I felt a little better after I got warmed up. Our main set today was 200s which as I have blogged previously I find the hardest distance to train for. I had a decent set today.

Total 4100scy

On the first set of 200s I struggled getting going on the first 200 but finally got into a rhythm after the first one and went, 2.05, 2.01, 1.58. The second set I went 2.04, 2.00, 1.57. The back set was interesting because I seldom do back and I don't recall the last time I tried doing quick 200s. My times were surprisingly consistent and went 2.20s on all three despite trying to descend. The last set of 200s I went 2.01, 1.59, 1.56. The 50s with fins were pretty easy and I think I need to drop my 50s with fins times to 27.5s for these short sets. I held 25s on the frees and 27.x on the back. I hope to feel better soreness wise on Monday after a nice couple of days of rest.
