I had a good nights sleep last night and was at the pool early eager to get in and swim. Oh how I am enjoying my swimming right now. Todays workout was tough with some fast broken swims after doing our 15x100 test set.
400 free with snorkel
10x50 catchup on 45
15x100 swum 5,4,3,2,1 starting at 1.20 and dropping 5 seconds per round
3x(50 AFAP to feet straight into 4x50 kick on 55)
1 Broken 500 swum as 200,100,200 with 20 seconds after the 200 and 10 seconds after the 100
1 Broken 100 swum as 25,50,25 with 5 seconds after 25, and 10 seconds after the 50
Total 4350 scy
On the 15x100 I was holding 1.02s until the last 3 and went 1mins on the two on 1.05 and 57 on the last 100 on 1min. I was very happy with this. On the broken 500 and broken 100 we went from a push and did turns at each distance and finished with a hand finish. I went 5.02 on the 500 and according to Tom I was 1min per 100 throughout. I was very happy with how I paced this. On the broken 100 I went 49.7 and felt strong throughout.
I really enjoyed this workout. The 500 was tough mentally but in a sick way I enjoyed it and was pleased with my pace on this. The 100 was a nice surprise.
