After a long rest

Week 79 - Thursday

Rate this Entry
I was very tired this morning and still stiff. I am guessing my stiffness is partly this past weekend and mostly yesterdays workout. Today we did a long warmup and then some pace work. We did a lot of yardage in a shorter amount of time than usual today.

Warm up
3x(2x200 on 2.40 with snorkel, 3x100 on 1.30 swum 25 drill, 25 free, 25 kick, 25 free)

Main sets
12x100 on 1.05
16x50 on 1 min, odd 50s 1 through 8 at 500 pace and 9-16 200 pace, even 50s perfect stroke

Warm down
200 easy

Total 4300scy

I hurt more than I should have in the warmup and never really got loose. Despite the 12x100s hurting pretty bad I finally loosened up and held 1.01-1.02 throughout. The odd 50's at 500 pace i was holding 28 mids to a touch, and on the 50's at 200 pace I was holding 26-27's to the touch.

    Thanks. Yesterday was brutal as you know.

    Donald told me this morning he used to do 16x100 best averages when he was swimming club. I could not imagine doing that. I guess when I was 18 I could have done it(and probably did) but those days are long gone. Fingers crossed we will all feel better tomorrow.
