I got back from California late last night and did not get to bed until after midnight. When my alarm went off after about 4 hrs of sleep I was feeling pretty awful. I ate and then went to the pool. I did not feel too bad in the warmup but when I started to push the main set I was very tired. Despite this I worked as hard as I could and ended up with a pretty good workout. I felt much better today even without the sleep than I did the past two days.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 45
6x(100 swim on 1.10, 50 kick on 50)
10x100 best average on 2mins
6x100 kick on 1.45
i swam the first main set aerobically and swam the 100s on 1.02 and the 50s kick on 42s. The best average set was very tough today and I held mainly 56s except the first 3 where I was 55s. The kick I used somewhat as a recovery holding 1.27s.
Today I had to travel to west Texas and I will be swimming in an outdoor short hotel pool tomorrow and Friday. I brought bungee cords with me so worst case I can use these as resistance swimming based on time.
I also found out this morning that my coach entered me in all the free events from the 50 to the 1500 and the 200 back in this weekends USAS meet. I was expecting to swim the 50 to the 800 free and was not expecting the mile and the 200 back. This will be a good bench mark on where I am with training for worlds but I am guessing I will be pretty tired by Sunday night.
