This has been a strange week sleep wise. I almost overslept this morning by hitting snooze on my alarm" I don't recall doing it but it put me back 10 mins right out of the gate. I then had a slight delay due to rain and slick roads so arrived a little later than normal. When I finally got on deck I was also in slow motion mode and struggled to get going during the warmup. I finally got going on the main set and overall felt much better than yesterday. One more really long workout tomorrow and we will be through this cycle. I don't know what the plan is for Saturday in terms of working out before the meet and I would not be surprised if I was asked to practice ahead of the meet.
Todays workout was long.
8X100 with snorkel on 1.20
3x1000 on 11.30 descend 1-3 pull with paddles
12x100 swim with fins on 1.02.5
the warmup Felt tough but I gradually descended as I warmed up from 1.15 to 1.07. The first 1000 continued to feel tough and I touched in 11.05. I was worried that the remaining 2x1000s were going to suck, but on the second one I finally started to feel ok and by the end of the last one felt pretty good. On number 2 I went 10.50 and the last one I went 10.40. These we quicker than I went on a similar set before nationals and I was pleased with these especially given how I felt at the beginning. The 100s with fins was interesting and I held 1min throughout.
