After a long rest

Week 55 - Saturday

Rate this Entry
I had a good nights sleep last night and felt pretty good today. My wife's grandmother went home today so my wife was up earlier than me for a change(she was not terribly happy about getting up early). Turnout was light at the pool and the workout was very long, but pretty straight forward. Due to a high school meet I had to cut the workout a little short and it should have been a 5200scy swim but ended up at 4600scy, making Just under 32k for the week.

4x400 with snorkel on 5mins

Main set
8x200 pull on 2.20 descend 1-4,5-8
1000 with fins on 10mins working turns

Warm down
500 swum alternating 100s back and free

Total 4600scy

on the 200s I descended from 2.06 to 2mins on the first round and 2.07 to 1.58 on the second round. I was a little light headed on the second round for some reason. I was a little off time wise on the 1000 but worked the turns.

Next week is likely to be a big yardage week also since we are in a long yardage cycle, but based on how I felt this week I hope we don't up the intensity or I may have some real challenges next week. At least I am in Dallas all week and get to sleep in my own bed.

    Two more weeks. When I spoke to Tom about taking another week off work for a training camp, he wanted me to do it the week after thanksgiving so I am guessing we won't see much of a drop off in yardage until after that.
