I had a good nights sleep and felt good when I arrived at the pool this morning. The workout was a mix of short and long today with th elong being on quite fast short rest type send offs.
16x50 free with snorkel on 50
4x400 on 4.30
16x75 swum as 25 kick with snorkel, 25 catchup drill, 25 swim on 1.10
2x300 on 3.15
100 double arm back
I descended the 400s going 4.20, 4.17, 4.14, 4.10. I swam the first 4 of the 75s as active recovery and then got into a nice rhythm on the last 12 and felt strong. The 300s was a serious mental effort, but went 3.05, 3.00. I was really tired after this workout and could of done with a longer warm down but ran out of time.
I am swimming the corporate challenge on Sunday so will likely miss weights on Saturday but will probably lift tonight. It's my daughters birthday today so we had birthday cake for breakfast. She has a private coaching class tonight so we decided to do presents last night and then birthday cake for breakfast this morning. What ten year old does not like cake for breakfast! We will go out for dinner after her class so it will be a rush tonight.
