Today was another crazy work day and I had a customer visiting us to discuss becoming a business partner around a new software product we have developed. As a result of my work commitment i had to make todays workout shorter than i would have liked, however the intensity was way up today and i was very happy with how i did today despite waking up pretty tired.
600 free with snorkel
12x75 on 1.05 swum as kick, drill, kick
4x(200 free on 2.05, 4x50 kick on 50)
Yes the 200s were really on 2.05. When I saw the time Tom set I almost freaked but after deciding to just do my best I focused on keeping my stroke long. I held 1.58-2.00 and actually descended each 200 by round. My overall conditioning has been good for a while and this was definitely another confidence boost. Even with the 200s I worked the kick pretty hard and was holding 40-42 on these. The first 50 kick was typically my slowest of each round.
I went back in my flog from one year ago and in January 2013 I did my first masters meet and from the blocks I went 1.59. Today was a great workout and I have to keep reminding myself I have only been at this weight for a year and during that time have dropped a lot of time and I feel I have a lot more that I can drop. Today was a glass half full kind of a day.
