I had a great nights sleep last night and woke about 10mins before the alarm went off. I headed to the pool hoping the pool was still setup for long course which it was. I was heading to Boston for the week after practice so hoped to get a good long aerobic workout in today which Tom delivered.
400 free with snorkel
10x300 pull on 4mins
8x100 kick on 2mins swum as repeat as needed 20seconds fast, 10seconds easy
100 double arm back easy
i felt very stiff today and the feeling never really went away. On the 300s I was holding 1.10 pace throughout. The 100s kick were tiring and I was holding 1.45s. It's surprising how the fast/slow hurt more than a consistent pace kicking at the same time on Saturday. I don't know why but these hurt.
I am training with the BUMS team while I am in Boston this week. I spoke to one of the coaches last week and she seemed very nice and I am sure the team will be like other masters teams I have trained with recently and very friendly. I have a busy work schedule all week with tomorrow in particular pretty rough. I have a small window between the end of practice and my first meeting so fingers crossed traffic behaves itself. Today was the Boston Marathon so Boston is very busy as I walked around town today. Fingers crossed as the week goes by traffic will return to Boston norms. Luckily most of my meetings are downtown so not much driving is required other than tomorrow.
