I did not feel as good in the water today as yesterday. Not bad by any stretch but a little heavier in my legs. I dont think it helped that the pool was setup for scy either. I have not swum scy for quite a while(I recall one workout during our training week and I dont recall the last one prior to that). Today felt like 9 strokes and then I had to turn and after a while I felt dizzy. I had forgotten just how hard continually doing turns is. Its sort of funny really because when I first went back to LCM I found it hard too, so I am guessing they are both hard but in different ways.
We dropped yardage again today but did a broken 200 and two broken 100s from a dive. I worked these as hard as I could and had speed but just not that extra pickup I was hoping for. I still have 5 days before the 800 so I have time. More rest this week and next week will be fun.
500 free with snorkel
10x50 on :35
1x200 broken at 50,75,50,25 with 10 seconds after the 50s and 15 seconds after the 75
6x50 finger tip drill on 1min
2x100 broken at 25,50,25 with 5 seconds after the 25 and 10 seconds after the 50
6x100 kick descend 1-3 and 4-6 with 3 and 6 no harder than 90% on 2mins
I was holding 30s on the transition set today. On the broken 200 I was 1:50, but went out a little quick on the first 50(25 to my feet). On the broken 100s I was 49s but felt a little heavy. Tom said to see how I felt on the 100s and to do 1,2,or 3 based on how I felt. On the second 100 in particular my legs felt heavy so I did not do a third broken 100. The kicks I went 1:30,1:25,1:18 or round 1 and 1:30,1:24,1:20 on round 2.
