I was originally heading to LA tonight with work but at 3am American Airlines phoned my house to inform me my flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked on an alternate route via Boston. Needless to say I am not flying to LA from Dallas via Boston and will postpone the trip. Anyhow, with the early call I was up early and was excited to be heading to practice. Today's workout was really tough but again I saw improvement in our 10x300 test set which is very rewarding.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
10x300 pull with paddles on 3.30
10x200 pull with paddles on 2.20
10x100 pull with paddles on 1.10
100 very easy
i may have done this much pulling in college( maybe) but I have defiantly not done this much in one practice with masters. This was a lot of pulling and I felt very tired at the end. Luckily my lats and tris are not too stiff as I write this but will no doubt feel this set tomorrow.
I worked the 300s and I went 3.05,3.03,3.01,3.01,3.01,3.00,3.01,3.03,3.03,3.03. The 200s I eased up a little and tried stretching out focusing on DPS and held 2.05s. The 100s I picked back up again and held 1.01s until the last one where I went 59. We swum several longer workouts last week but this was done in about 1hr and 20 mins with only 30 seconds between sets to rehydrate and this made it even tougher.
