I had an awful nights sleep last night and woke up nearly every hour on the hour; I don't know why, but I did. Not the start to the week I wanted and will feel it tomorrow I am sure. Despite the bad nights sleep I had a great workout today.
400 free with snorkel
8x50 catchup on 45
10x300 pull on 3.40(this was 10 seconds more rest than usual) and I was given instructions to hold 1min pace)
10x50 kick on 50
4x(2x50 on 40 high tempo but relaxed on 40, 50 AFAP on 1min)
I held 3.00-3.01 throughout the 300 set. This hurt pretty bad and I was extremely tired by the end. I am always amazed after a pull set how its not just my arms that ache but my whole body and the kick set sucked. I held 40-43 throughout and I was hurting. This feeling carried across to the next set where I was holding 31s on the high tempo 50s and 27s on the AFAP. I was beat at the end of this practice despite getting more rest than usual.
I am traveling to Atlanta, GA and Birmingham, AL tomorrow through the end of the day on Thursday. I have made arrangements to swim in Atlanta but my schedule may not allow much. Fingers crossed I will get my swimming in or else I will be one grouchy dude!!!
