I woke feeling good this morning and my stiffness from weights had really subsided. As today's workout went on I got more and more tired and by the end I was positively beat. I hope today was simply one of those days where you have to power through and tomorrow I am feeling better. I plan on lifting tonight and doing legs so I suspect I will be sore tomorrow(how about that for a positive attitude).
800 swum kick, swim, drill, swim by 50
4x(4x50 kick on 45, 100 fast on 1.20)
4x(4x50 free on 32.5, 2x300 pull on 3.30)
On the kick 50s I held 40s and the fast 100 I went 1.05s(these felt much quicker based on my level of effort). The 4x50s free on short rest I held 29s throughout but the last two sets I really had to work the last 2 x 50s to hold the pace. The 300s were swum as an active recovery and I was getting about 10 seconds rest. Overall I was pleased I held this one together because it was a hard workout. There was a high school kid in the lane next to me doing some broken 200s when I was doing my 4x50s free and it helped having a rabbit; although I don't think he was very impressed with the old guy running him down!
