I felt tired this morning. I helped my son with his math project last night which despite him being very smart was quite frustrating; he did not want to do the project despite me offering this past weekend. We powered through it and I gave him the help he asked for but he did the project and it turned out great.
This is morning it was cold again and this did not help me get motivated. That said I did swim and enjoyed the main set. This is the first time we have done this one and I ended up pushing pretty hard. It was fun.
1000 free with snorkel
10x2 turn 50s on 45.
6x(100 fast swim free on 1.20, 75 kick on 1.20 beating your time from the 100)
2x500 pull breathing 3,5,7,9 by 50 on 6mins
10x25 on 30 focusing on breakouts and hand entry
i started out going 1.03 on the 100 swim and 1.02 on the kick. By the last round I was down to 58 on the swim and 58 on the kick. This was fun trying to push myself. I went very easy on the 500s but the breathing 9 was very hard because I only do 9 strokes per length when wearing paddles so ended up taking 1 breath. After a while I deliberately breathed mid poll and did the turn with no breaths. The breakouts were good. I watched video of my meet 100 and I lost half a body length per turn on the fast kids. I think I have a lot of room to improve my turns. When I get tired I get lazy with my first breath too.
