So a very strange thing happened this morning; I got up to get ready for practice, put on my jammer and warm ups and headed out of the bathroom, only to realise that the clock said 2.30am. I swear I heard the alarm go off, but I am guessing I was in one of those nearly asleep dreams, and was way early for practice. I used very early in the morning logic and ended up deciding it was too close to my wake up time to get undressed again so slept in my jammers for a few more hours. I can honestly say I have never done that before and can atest that jammers are not ideal sleeping attire.
When I actually headed to the pool I felt pretty good and todays workout was more long aerobic swimming with a few pace swims mixed in. We are on the 3rd of 3 weeks in this long aerobic cycle and I see light at the end of the tunnel.
4x(600 swim on 7mins, 200 kick on 3.30, 6x50 on 35, 4x25 no breathers on 30 AFAP)
200 warm down
I held 1.05 pace on the 600's throughout, 3mins on the kick, 30s on the 50's and 12's on the 25's. Round 1 I swam the 600 with my snorkel, round 2 I pulled the 600, round 3 I pulled with my snorkel, and round 4 I swam the 600, everything else was done as written. I was expecting my legs to be pretty torn up sunday and yesterday after hitting them pretty hard on saturday but I think my legs are finally adjusting to the punishment I have been inflicting on them. I will lift tonight and back off on thursday due to my USAS meet this weekend. I may do legs tonight since I will miss thursday and saturday.
