My daughter had to go to an emergency care hospital last night as a result of running a fever and generally feeling quite sick. She had a 102F fever and was diagnosed with strep throat. My son woke this morning complaining of a sore throat so I suspect we will all end up with it in the next week.
I woke tired but no sore throat this morning. Today's workout was really tough and I was very tired when we were finished. As a result of sick kids I had to postpone my sit down with Tom to work on our training plan. Its hard to believe its only 26 weeks until worlds. We rescheduled our meeting until Friday.
400 swim with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
8x500 swum as 2x(500 pull, 500 over kick, 500 negative split, 500 AFAP) on 5.50
10x50 kick on 1min
100 double arm back
This is a lot of yardage in 70 minutes and with the 500s on 1.10 pace it was a high threshold day. I went 5.25, 5.30,5.25,5.10, 5.20,5.25,5.20,5.07. I swam all of these with paddles and 1 and 5 with pull bouy.
We have had a few people ask to swim on our team at worlds and I found out over the weekend that it takes 60 days to reregister for another team meaning that it's not possible to reregister after nationals ahead of the 1st June registration deadline for worlds. This is a shame because people who don't have a team at worlds won't be able to do relays and it seemed joining a larger team would be a win win, but alas the timing does not work.
