I woke feeling pretty good this morning. I was hoping we would do the 300 test set and my wish was answered. The old expression of watch what you ask for came true today. We dropped the send off time and I was hurting really bad. Overall this was a really long workout and I hurt bad, but I was able to hold a good pace.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
10x50 on 50 swum 12.5 streamline kick, 12.5 swim, 12.5 streamline kick, 12.5 swim100 easy
10x300 pull with paddles on 3.20
3x(3x50 kick on 45, 3x50 free active recovery on 45)
My 300s were pretty good but I fell off on 8,9 and 10. I went 3.01,3.03,3.03,3.03,3.03,3.03,3.03,3.05,3.08,3.09. The kick set was hard and I held 38-40s. I am thinking of swimming an open water swim this weekend. A couple of guys on our team are doing it and we suggested putting together a relay. So i will do the swim, a friend from work will do the bike and then one of the guys I swim with who is doing the swim on a sprint will do our run. The relay will be a Standard triathlon. Everyone keeps telling me how much fun it will be so I will give it a go. One year back in the pool and despite feling really beat today I don't feel half as bad as I did one year today. It's been an awesome year and I have had a lot of fun. Hopefully I will have many more years of enjoyable swimming.
