Our coach was out today and I was asked to write up the workout for everyone so I ended up getting to the pool a little earlier than usual. I had a good nights sleep and finally the legs are starting to feel a little better; they are not pain free but I don't feel like the tin man when I walk any more either.
The pool was setup as LCM and today was was shorter than usual but had a good amount of high intensity work.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on 50
3x(1x50 free on :35, 2x100 on 1:20, 3x50 streamline kick on :55) with 30 seconds rest between rounds
8x50 fast kick with fins on 1min
4x200 perfect swimming on 3mins
4x50 AFAP from a dive on 2mins
i was holding 31-32s on the 50 on :35, 1:07-1:09 on the 100s and 50s on the kick. This set was hard work, but I got going and by the end it felt ok. The 50s kick with fins I was holding 32s other than the last one where Nikki decided to do her Sammy save up and I picked it up and went 29. The 200s were swum easy. The 4x50s I felt awesome and went 27,27,27,26. Despite being tired after a long couple of weeks of training I feel strong and I am swimming surprisingly fast for this time of the season for me which all bodes well for worlds. One more week of regular training and then we have our camp followed by our taper. It's hard to believe worlds is only 6 weeks away.
