I lifted last night and as is usual with me after I lift I was stiff and sore, but overall I felt ok. Todays workout was mainly recovery with some pretty long aerobic sets.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
3x500 free on 6 mins
3x300 kick on 5.15
2x1000 swim with snorkel on 12mins
10x50 odds on 35 free, evens on 40 back
200 breast from a dive swum with one of the junior racers who asked for me to pace them
The 500's seemed hard today despite being instructed to not push them and I went 5.30's on all of them. The 300's kick felt good and I was holding 4.30's and getting a nice rest on these. The 2x1000's I focused on left hand entry and went 11.30's. The original plan was to be done after the 2x1000's but the high schoolers were not at practice today so I was given more yardage. The 50's I felt strong but did not push and held 30's on the free and 35's on the back. The 200 breast was fun because I thought I was being setup to have an 12 year old whoop me but I ended up going 2.38 and was a long way ahead of him. Overall I felt good today and it was very nice to have a recovery workout.
