I had a great nights sleep in my own bed last night. I got back from DC early evening and my wife ordered Indian food for dinner. Quite the week of food this week with Thai, Indian and Ethiopian. Today's workout was fun. We did a meet warmup and then a 200 from the blocks with the electronic timing system.
1000 swim with snorkel swum as 75 free, 25 streamline kick
10x50 free on 40 build
200 fast from block
10x50 drill swim by 25 on 1 min
8x100 with snorkel on 1.10
10x50 streamline kick on 55
I went 1.52.13 from the blocks on the fast 200: out in 55.2 to the feet, and back in 56.93. I deliberately held back on the first 100 but did not expect this quick. I thought it would be a mid 1.55 so was very happy with this especially the splits. The rest of the workout was pretty easy stuff. I held 1.03-1.04 on the 8x100s.
I lifted after practice today and did my normal 3 rounds, with round being 10 reps per machine at 80% effort, second round 8 reps at max and the third round was 6 reps at fail. I also warmed up with bands which was recommended to me by the sports physiologist at Coopers Clinic. I finished with Vasa Swim trainer for 10 mins( this was hard today)
3x(inclined bench press, bench press, military press, lower back machine, seated row hands inside, seated row hands outside, lat pull down hands inside, lat pull down hands outside)
I feel stiff and suspect this will remain for a few days. A good workout today and I was particularly happy with my 200.
